Comments Off on California Climate Law Survives, Proposition 23 Defeated

Take that giant oil companies! Petroleum-backed  California Proposition 23 was looking to overturn the most comprehensive climate law in the country but was stomped out at the polls yesterday by California voters. Golden Staters can take pride in the fact that they didn’t listen to the big oil spin and held fast to their green credentials by keeping a law that promotes renewable energy growth, green collar jobs, advanced sustainable technology and low emissions vehicles on the books.

Comments Off on San Francisco Bans Happy Meals!

San Francisco is known as the evergreen city with their composting , their hordes of EV charging stations and now word on the street is that the San Francisco Board of Supervisors has voted to ban toy giveaways in meals that don’t rate as nutritious — bye bye happy meals, hello healthier kids!

Rubber Band Lamps by Orchard Studio

Comments Off on Rubber Band Lamps by Orchard Studio

Spotted at this year’s London Design Festival amidst a flurry of other hot new home furnishings, these colorful lamps by Orchard Studio have a stretchy surprise – they’re made with reclaimed rubber bands! One of the coolest parts of the enlightening design, besides the fact that it matches Orchard’s equally cheeky rubber band chairs , is that you can switch out the bands with your own, meaning you can change the color scheme to all blue, all red, all beige, etc. While the lamps shown here appear to be incandescents (very 2001), we really hope these are CFL compatible too. + Orchard Studio Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: eco lighting , green design , green lighting , London Design Week , orchard studio , portable furniture , Recycled Materials , rubber band lamps , rubber bands
