Hello and welcome to my world of pots and plants. UBeauty is devoted to supplying gardeners with innovative designs that utilise biodegradable and recycled materials. My love of growing succulents got me searching for interesting pots to showcase them in. On finding handcrafted recycled tyre pots in Pakistan, which were not yet available in Australia, l decided to start a business devoted to sustainable, recycled garden wares.

UBeauty handcrafted recycled tyre pots can be purchased via my website,

Pots can also be purchased in selected stores, please check the website for locations.

We also now have coconut fibre pots, some of these have been potted with succulents, and these can be purchased at my market stalls, including our regular spot at Salamanca Market most Saturdays in Hobart. The coconut pots are biodegradable and made from a renewable resource (Coconut Husks). They are best used as a decorative pot for the short term, and can either be re-potted, or planted directly into your garden “pot and all’.

Also available at my market stalls are West County Gardening Gloves made from recycled plastic bottles that would otherwise be sent to landfill. The plastic is melted and turned into a yarn (just like wool) and woven to make a durable water resistant fabric.

I have just returned from The Melbourne Sustainable Living Festival, which was in the heart of the City at
Federation Square
on the banks of the Yarra River. A whole festival dedicated to Sustainability!

Next is The Melbourne Flower and Garden Show, March 30th-2nd April (siteB53). If you want me at your festival just send me a message and I’d love to come.

UBeauty is dedicated to finding earth friendly products for living and garden spaces and people.

  1. You know when the Ferrari FF you're admiring on the showroom floor is the wrong colour? You'd also prefer a different set-up of tyres and wheels, and perhaps the red rather than yellow brake calipers? Well, there's an app for that. Sydney IT developer Zspace has created tablet software for the Italian supercar maker that lets you custom-build your $500,000 dream ride in 3D augmented reality, then have the dealer video you standing next to it, as if it's already in the showroom. Email the video to your other half for final approval. Or perhaps not. The app is a world first point-of-sale use of the software and has been rolled out in dealerships in Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Zspace co-founder Tim Jardine reckons it could be the difference between "I'll think about it" and "I'll take it." Now Zspace just needs to develop an app to pay for it. We provide best and top quality Tyres Sydney, Wheels Sydney, Tyre Fitting, Cheap Tyres Sydney, Dunlop Tyres, Bridgestone Tyres, Kumho Tyres, Tyres Online, Ozzy Tyres and Tempe Tyres.
