Recycled home wins award

An exhibition stand that shows how a recycled home could look has won a top award at this year's Ideal Home Show.

The Waste and Resources Action Programme's (WRAP) stand made from 100% recycled materials and designed by TV star Oliver Heath was highly commended in the smaller stand for its creative design, use of space and friendly staff members.

WRAP's Recycled Living home

WRAP head of communications Julie Parry said: "The Recycled Living stand was an excellent way for Recycle Now to inspire visitors and demonstrate how household waste can be transformed into amazing, high quality products."

Designer Oliver Heath added: "The Recycled Living home is proof that yoghurt pots, drinks cans and jam jars we recycle today can be transformed into new and exciting materials that are stylish enough to satisfy the tastes of even the most discerning homeowners."
