Cardboard Craft Gadgets: Disposable Design Statement? « Dornob Like life-size cardboard figure cut-outs used to advertise movies, these creative constructions are merely representations of other objects – but how far are they from the objects we so regularly throw away? We all realize the truth in this upon reflection, but it is still sometimes shocking to concede: we treat amazing technologies as disposable goods. Making things used to be about durability, design was made to last. Now no one expects even their suburban home to be well-built, let alone a phone or camera. Super Natural Materials | Entropy Resins Our goal is to create high performance eco resins that optimize the sustainability of our customers' end products while improving performance and cost. We've replaced petroleum based chemicals with biobased renewable feedstocks. We are able to lower our resins' environmental impact from processing by employing bioderived materials sourced as co-products or from the waste stream of other bio-refining processes. Reducing Carbon Footprint Through Green Chemistry It is widely accepted that climate change caused by global warming is the largest environmental threat humans have ever faced. Sustainability Through Shared Biobased Feedstocks We believe by replacing fossil based carbon usage with biobased "living carbon" that is either shared with or from the waste stream of other industrial processes; we can help to further reduce this deficit in GHG production from our resins. *Based on PlasticsEurope report by I.

Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed primarily of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) in the form of the mineral calcite. It most commonly forms in clear, warm, shallow marine waters. It is usually an organic sedimentary rock that forms from the accumulation of shell, coral, algal and fecal debris. Limestone-Forming Environment - Marine Most limestones form in shallow, calm, warm marine waters. Some limestones can form by direct precipitation of calcium carbonate from marine or fresh water. Today Earth has many limestone-forming environments. One of these areas is the Bahamas Platform, located in the Atlantic Ocean about 100 miles southeast of southern Florida (see satellite image at right). Limestone-Forming Environment - Evaporative Limestone can also form through evaporation. The limestone that makes up these cave formations is known as "travertine" and is a chemical sedimentary rock.

Rideable Cardboard Bicycle Affichage environnemental - Cool Shoe Corporation Cool Shoe participe à l’expérimentation environnementale Depuis le 1er juillet 2011, Cool Shoe participe au dispositif d’information environnementale initiée par le Grenelle Environnement sur son produit phare : la tong ORIGINAL. Ce dispositif s’inscrit dans le cadre de sa politique de diminution son empreinte environnementale (projet Ecoological) ainsi dans celui de l’expérimentation nationale d’information environnementale menée par le Ministère de l’Ecologie, du Développement Durable, des Transports et du Logement, à laquelle les industriels et les distributeurs ont été invités à participer volontairement. La mise en place de l’affichage environnemental s’est fait dans le cadre de l’action collective « affichage environnemental » portée par EUROSIMA CLUSTER et animée par la CCI des Landes. Pourquoi une telle démarche ? A chaque étape du cycle de vie du produit, des efforts supplémentaires vont être engagés pour améliorer notre empreinte. 1- Emissions de gaz à effet de serre Unité : kgPO43-
Cardboard Tube Art Cardboard tubing, whether it be from toilet paper rolls or industrial strength tubing, is a versatile medium that many artists and designers have experimented with. Below are some amazing examples of what is possible with a cardboard tube. Toilet paper tube zoo scene by Anastassia Elias Mini sculpted masks made out of toilet paper roll tubes by Junior Fitz Jacquet. An installation made entirely out of cardboard tubing, by producciones invisibles. Cardboard tubes can be used as decoration outside a gallery setting too. Cardboard tubing makes a cheap and stylish wall too. This gorgeous chair by Matthew Laws is, surprise surprise, also made out of cardboard tubing.
Cardboard Bike Station Benedetto Bufalino made this cardboard bike station in Lyon (France) as a “social ephemeral” art installation. It looks exactly like the real ones you can find in the city of Lyon which was the first city in France to launch a bike sharing program (called Velo’V) a few years ago ! ++ Benedetto Bufalino Freefold Furniture Packaging Lights: Recycled Green Lighting by Anke Weiss Extraneous packaging and poor packaging design are a couple of TreeHugger's least favorite things, so we're always glad to see examples of better packaging and creative ways to reuse old packaging and keep it out of the landfill. Falling into the latter category is the green lighting from Amsterdam-based designer Anke Weiss; appropriately named "Packaging Lights," it takes typically disposable packaging -- cookies, juice, and soap, just to name a few -- and gives it new life as lighting. We've seen this kind of thing done before -- creative recycling is always welcome on these pages -- but we like the balance this strikes between looking like the original packaging and taking on its own identity as lighting. What packaging would you want to see reincarnated as lighting? Hit the jump for more pics.
