Local Allotments: Wool rich carpet can help keep weeds at bay on paths and in plots. It is also used for insulating compost heaps or the soil in the winter. Wool carpet also has very high nitrogen content which has been proven to considerably increase growth and improve growth rate.
Local Animal Rescue Shelter: Carpet pieces make good mats for kennels especially in the winter to keep animals warm.
Anti-frost Windscreen Covers: Cutting a piece to size for your car windscreen will save time (and your hands) defrosting in the winter mornings.
Insulation: If it is not in the way in your loft keep it there for added insulation! It will retain heat in your home, which will lower your heating bills.
Pond Liner: Carpet can be used for lining ponds.
