Comments Off on Rowan Tindale’s Beautiful Wood Sustrans Bike is Made Entirely from Waste Materials

Designer Rowan Tindale teamed up with sustainable transport charity Sustrans to make a bike that is as sustainable to produce as it is to use. The frame is made of wood salvaged from Brighton’s sea defenses, and it has been laminated using a bio-epoxy resin. The back fork is made of wood salvaged from a tree affected by ash dieback that was steam bent to accommodate the rear wheel. The rest of the parts have all been salvaged from broken bikes to produce a bike made entirely from waste or recycled material. + Sustrans Bike The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Mashed Potato Stuffed Bell Peppers

Photos by Jaymi Heimbuch Growing up, stuffed bell peppers were a staple. But I admit, I am not a big fan of rice (the way my mother makes them).

Yet adorable panda bears and iconic tigers aren’t the only ones facing numbered days about now. Uglier species have fallen on hard times too: Species like the Ozarks Hellbender, one of the largest salamanders in the world. There are only 590 of the creatures, which only inhabit rivers and streams in Arkansas and Missouri, left in the wild. And they’re almost all… Read the full story on TreeHugger
