Modern life is short on space but big on ideas – just like us at H&O Plastics.
Houses seem to be getting smaller every year. Many modern families, particularly those living in cities, are living in small flats or apartments with very limited space. But we all have stuff that we need to store, so we need to get innovative about how we do it using as little space as possible.
Our bucket boffins think they have found the perfect solution – the vertical bucket storage rack.
It has a ton of different uses, below are just a few of our favourites.
Do you have a messy garage? Perhaps it’s a graveyard for old toys, or just a space to store all those things you just can’t let go of. A bucket storage rack could be the answer.
Plastic containers offer the perfect storage solution. They are inexpensive, versatile and reliable. Buckets can be hung, stacked, fixed and carried easier than you can say ‘buckets’.
Whether it's golf balls, paint supplies or bike helmets, just fill a bucket and hang it wherever you can. Many of our buckets come with metal handles, so it could just be a case of hanging them on hooks, or from lengths of string draped from the rafters.
Alternatively, the more technical amongst you could build a more complex rack system using whatever you can get your hands on. The one shown in our photo attaches a bucket to a plastic rack using cable ties.
Whatever you choose to do you can be sure that your garage will have more space, without the clutter.
Vertical gardeners represent a particularly ingenuitive bunch. These green fingered go-getters manage without much outdoor space but with a little innovation and plenty of aspiration.
In a day and age when greenery is quickly disappearing, it is more important than ever that we get creative to create more green spaces. Whether you want to grow your own veg or just want to put some green back in your life, an H&O vertical bucket garden is the ideal solution.
Just mount your buckets on top of each other, make sure they are facing the sun and don’t forget to water them; within no time you’ll be reaping the rewards from your efforts. Pretty soon all of your friends will want one too.

At H&O we love helping animals, that's why we work with vets, farmers and other animal lovers take care of pets, livestock and recreational animals.
Our buckets come in a massive range of shapes and sizes – we have a plastic container for every purpose. From feed buckets to water troughs and even makeshift animal baths, our containers help care for animals in a number of different ways.
The selection of standard plastic buckets come in lots of different sizes, from small (0.5, 1, 2 and 5 litre) to large (30, 25, 20, 16 and 10 litre), so whether you own a chicken or a horse you can be sure to find a container suitable for your animal.
The most important advantage that H&O plastic containers have over other lower quality products is that they are food-grade quality.
This food safe guarantee means that there is no need to worry about harmful chemicals seeping off the plastic into any food or water and potentially harming the animals.
This is always the first priority for our customers so it is our first priority as well.
There is no need to worry as well if your animal is particularly strong and boisterous. The chewed up furniture that is familiar to all dog owners will not affect H&O plastic buckets.
All of our buckets are made from a high quality polymer, and we use more raw materials in our buckets than other cheaper suppliers. This makes our plastics extremely stress-resistant and highly durable – they are even suitable for horses.
We understand how difficult it can be for farmers to keep everything safe and dry, particularly with the British weather. Luckily we have a huge range of lidded containers that are ideally suited to storing a variety of materials for long periods of time without it becoming damaged.
Our open top kegs, coming in sizes from 30L to 220L all come with heavy-duty lids and are perfect for storing feed, seed or even dung. They all come with easy-carry side handles and can be moved easily with forklift trucks.
H&O Plastics also provide a helping hand to farmers with our plastic jerry cans. Coming in a range of sizes, these plastic containers are far cheaper than their metal alternatives but are almost as durable – meaning they are highly suited to storing red tinted farm diesel for long periods of time.
We work hard to keep our customers happy, so they can keep their animals happy. Visit our online shop and find the plastic container suitable for your animals.
