Apologies for severe lack of posts – life has become very busy, and will only get busier in the coming weeks!
In the meantime, enjoy these Kami Pots which are made from 100% biodegradable cellulose. What a beautiful result.
What a clever, clever idea from Brazilian designer Mauricio Arruda: wooden storage units that house those ever-familiar plastic crates. The crates are made from recycled plastic and the idea is that they can be easily moved without the need cardboard boxes and the like.

I predict we’ll see this concept trickle down to the high street in no time.
Check out this brillaint ‘Redesign’ line of products from Norway’s Ralston & Bau.
In an effort to be environmentally friendly they’ve designed products (lamps, cake stands and candle holders) that are formed from old plant pots, teacups, lampshades, and teapots.
All the original objects were sourced from Fretex (a division of Norway’s Salvation Army.)
Dan builds low-income housing from salvage and scrap using items like discarded shingles, cattle bones, picture frame corners, broken tiles, license plates and wine corks.
Hopefully we’ll see some copycat projects start up around the world!
