Biodegradable Paint Trays

On a recent painting project I discovered something really cool- bio degradable paint roller trays.

Plastic paint trays are so cheap we tend to use them once and throw them away with little thought to what happens next, well not much for hundreds of years. That is how long they willl take to break down in landfill, outliving you and generations of your decendants. What a legacy to leave.

Now you have an option BIODEGRADABLE paint trays!
