Panda is already known globally for its sustainable bamboo sunglasses, and now they’re releasing the Panda Watch ; the first of its kind. Elegant and minimalist, the watches are handcrafted from sustainable bamboo and have straps made of Portuguese cork. The cork is extremely soft to the touch and also incredibly durable, and its textures complement the sleek wood-like grain of the bamboo watch face. The timepieces themselves have Swiss Movement internal mechanisms, creating classic watches that are as stylish as they are sustainable. + Panda Watches The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

At Meet the Media Guru this year, Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde presented the “Smog free project”, an “electronic vacuum cleaner” that could potentially suck up urban smog .
