Womby Recycled Plastic Hand Trowel


Eco-friendly garden tools made in Australia from 100% recycled plastic bottle caps.

The Womby Hand Trowel's clever design is based on the digging skills of our native wombat and is tough enough to handle any gardening task.

Sturdy but lightweight with ergonomic grip, suitable for all gardening levels, from beginner kids to experienced green thumbs. 

Plus, feel good knowing every tool diverts 75 plastic lids from landfill. Drink bottle lids are shredded, then melted, before being injected into a mould. This high density poly ethylene (HDPE 2) is strong but lightweight, in fact just as strong as conventional tools on the market, with a tensile strength of 3200 – 4500 PSI or 224 kg of weight per centre metre square. 

The recycled plastic is resistant to chemicals, water and UV light, but not fade resistant - as this would require additional chemicals added to the process.

Trowel measures 29.5cm long.

Quality, long lasting tools requiring minimal upkeep. Pair with the Casso Hand Fork here.

Made in Australia / 100% Indigenous owned / 100% recycled

About Gardening on Country

Gardening on Country was established in 2023 with a mission to foster a circular economy, where the utilisation of recycled plastic products becomes the standard.

Proud descendant of the Yuin Mob from the Southeast Coast of NSW, Mitchell Skuta was born in Bairnsdale, Victoria, on Gunaikurnai Country, where Gardening on Country tools are now made.

He is driven by a passion for the environment and a strong desire to contribute to its protection.
