Comments Off on From root to fruit: looking back and reflecting forward with Ramsay Taum

As one of the cultural advisors involved with the Blue Planet Summit ten years ago — which worked in parallel with the genesis of the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative and eventually Governor Ige’s 100% renewable electricity mandate — Ramsay Taum takes us back to what helped catalyze a paradigm shift in 2008 and what lessons can be learned as Hawaii’s energy and climate stakeholders take action today.

Comments Off on See how one couple built their off-grid cabin for only a few hundred dollars

When Jesse and Alyssa moved to their off grid property in September of 2015, they had grand dreams of the buildings they would construct together. First, they planned on building a timber frame barn built with trees from their own property and eventually a timber frame house. They relished the idea of doing the projects themselves and learning valuable skills as they went. The couple’s initial living space was far less grand, as they were living and working from a 19′ travel trailer. This was a satisfactory…

Comments Off on Ford is Increasing Use of Non-Steel Renewable & Recyclable Materials

Image: Ford “In 2009, Ford reduced the amount of automotive-related plastics to landfills by nearly 30 million pounds” Making cars more fuel efficient, and eventually run 100% on clean and renewable energy, is a great goal. But in parallel, it is important to clean up the materials and processes used to make the cars themselves. Steel is already widely recycled, but what about all the other materials (foams, plastics, fabrics, etc)?

Comments Off on The Trials and Terrors of Insect Life as Captured by Marta Grzesiak (Slideshow)

Image credit: Marta Grzesiak With hard bodies, iridescent colors, segmented eyes, pairs and pairs of wings, and, let’s not forget, wings—It’s hard to imagine creatures more dissimilar to ourselves than insects. Yet, when we take a close look, we can see that the lives of insects follow many of the same patterns as our own: We all eat, mate, and eventually die. Whether you see the similarities or not, the macrophotography of Marta Grzesiak will leave you with a new impression of insect life

A little brown bat afflicted with white-nose syndrome. Image credit: Wikimedia Commons Since 2006, bat populations in the northeastern United States have been decimated by a mysterious condition known as ” white-nose syndrome .” Caused by a fungus, Geomyces destructans , the syndrome occurs after hibernating bats develop the powdery-white fungal coating around their nose and on their wings. Victims wake and fly from the cave, burning precious fat stores and eventually starving to death

Comments Off on Toronto Treehouse By Nicko Björn Elliott

I have figured out what you have to do to succeed as design blogger these days: set your watch on London time so that you are awake when Marcus and Rose of Dezeen put up their posts. This cute little number is probably around the corner from me in Toronto but gets published in London first. I google the designer, Nicko Björn Elliott, and there are already three full pages of design websites that have picked it up.

Comments Off on beloved bumbershoot.

As soon as the first raindrop hits the pavement in any big city, vendors magically appear to sell umbrellas for almost pennies. The sad fact is that hundreds of these umbrellas will bite the dust very quickly (A moment of silence for our fallen soldiers). Yes, what sounds like a money saver at the time is probably an umbrella that will only last a few storms, ending up in a bin on the corner and eventually a landfill.
