A young Portuguese entrepreneur is introducing the first shoe in the market packed in a box made of wood . The name is Swain, the concept is simple: “You don’t need to throw away your paper box or burn it in your fireplace anymore”, says Rodrigo Mendes, the young Portuguese entrepreneur. “A box is perfect for planting strawberries or to keep books and CDs on your desk.” Swain is manufactured in northern Portugal, and because they are made to last, you won’t need to buy a replacement pair for a long time. + Buy Swain + Support Swain on Indiegogo The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Honda’s new $210 million paint facility will cut 18 percent of CO2 emissions

A few minutes northwest of Columbus, Ohio, past the suburban subdivisions and sprawling farmland, sits Honda ’s first and largest auto plant in North America. There, the company will soon break ground on one of the single biggest initiatives the car maker is taking to reduce its overall environmental impact. The Marysville Auto Plant (MAP) will be renovated to add a $210 million painting facility for select Acura models, so that a new paint process can be implemented to cut CO2 emissions by 18 percent, on top of saving untold quantities of water and waste. With this investment, Honda will move closer to its global goals for reducing GHG emissions up to 90 percent based on per unit sales.
