Comments Off on Compact Bike Helmet by Agence 360 Folds Up to Fit in Your Bag

While cycling is undoubtedly fun and a great way to keep fit, we all know dangerous it can be if you don’t take safety precautions — yet so many cyclists still don’t wear their helmets ! A common excuse is that they are such a pain to carry around, but perhaps this neat fold-up device will encourage more cyclists to protect their heads. It simply folds into a compact form that you can fit in your bag as soon as you’re done. Called “Overade,” this fantastic helmet is a unisex design created by designer Patrick Jouffret from Agence 360 and engineer Philippe Arrouart — two men who may very well have figured out a way to appeal to risk-taking cyclists.

Comments Off on Shocking Climate Week Survey: Business Leaders More Influential Than Celebrities On Environmental Issues

You have to feel sorry for celebrities – if it wasn’t hard enough being constantly chased by the paparazzi and deciding what to do with their millions of dollars, it appears that when it comes to environmental matters, the public prefers to listen to the opinions of business leaders and politicians rather than theirs. Take Leonardo DiCaprio – despite the avid environmentalist warning us about the perils of global warming in his film The 11th Hour , a poll from Climate Week saw Bill Gates named as the first person people would listen to regarding climate change.
