Flexible colourful plastic containers – made in Britain.  Available in 6 sizes and a wide variety of colours. Rainbow Trugs themselves and the Rainbow Trugs lid are made in Britain. Rainbow Trugs are food safe and UV stable. Inside there is a gallons and litres indicator. Some of the other stuff on their website is made abroad though.  Look for the Union Flag next to the item’s picture I assume to see what is British made. British made items include Rainbow Trugs, pot stands, Rainbow Trug Riddle, Rainbow Trug lid, Easi Skip Feeders, 3 gallon buckets, Rhino feed buckets, Rainbow feeders and tidy trays.

So useful…
