Pig Bin

This week we where kindly given a pig bin, it was issued by bristol city council to help with the war on waste people saved kitchen scraps for the communal pig bin or to feed hens for eggs. 

Ours will make a great place to store dog food but as the poem below says the pig bin played an important part in the war effort.

‘Because of the pail, the scraps were saved,

Because of the scraps, the pigs were saved,

Because of the pigs, the rations were saved,

Because of the rations, the ships were saved,

Because of the ships, the island was saved,

Because of the island, the Empire was saved,

And all because of the housewife’s pail.
