If you have recently bought a carpet, or have offcuts lying around then there is no need to throw the surplus/offcuts away. There are plenty of ideas for using up these pieces of carpet - lining draws, or using them in your pets bed, or cutting them into small pieces and placing them underneath plant pots etc outside so as not to mark windowsills or the like.
You could use them in the boot of your car or even lag pipes with them.
They may seem useless at first but they can be used in many ways which means they won't end up in landfill - now that's good for the environment.
