Made from hard-wearing recycled tyre rubber, the Tubtrug is a versatile and eco-friendly storage addition to a home or garden. The lightweight, flexible container is suitable for use indoors, stuffed full of magazines, children’s toys, laundry or firewood, but is even better used outdoors for gardening tools, hoses and soil – or for just washing the family dog. And while the Tubtrug’s design makes it a great solution for storage, it just so happens to also come in a very trendy Emerald Green – Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2013. The Tubtrug is available in small (14 Litre, 23 cm x 33 cm, 0.4 kg), medium (26 Litre, 30 cm x 39 cm, 0.7 kg) and large (38 Litre, 33 cm x 45 cm, 1.1 kg) and priced between R125 and R240. It is available online from 5rooms.com.
