Good friend of Recycle This Petra has been in touch again: Here I am again with another item that you hopefully find interesting enough to put on your website. Still cleaning my cupboards 🙂 , I now found several out-of-date bottles of contact lens liquid. It’s the storage and insertion liquid, not the soapy cleaning stuff, although it says that it can also be used for cleaning. I can’t find any ingredients, except that it contains certain additives for conservation. Does anyone know if there’s anything I can do with it. I don’t wear my lenses any more due to too dry eyes, so this is what is left. As I’m a glasses wearer, I’ve not had enough experience with the liquid to know what it could be used for – I do know that those solutions are sometimes just saline , but I don’t know if that’s the case with Petra’s stash. Has anyone else had leftover contact lens solution? What did you do with it? Once they’re out of date, can they be used for other not-so-critical things? And if so, what? As it’s such an unknown area to me, I’d love to hear your ideas for this!

Comments Off on Gartenkulter Makes Poetic Pots From Recycled Books

With the recent rise in popularity of electronic readers such as the Amazon Kindle and the Apple iPad , thoughts of “book extinction” have really seeped their way into design conversations. Italy-based Gartenkulter pays tribute to the tree with these beautiful planters made from old and disused books . By removing the heart of the book’s cover and pages and then creating a seal, the book becomes a home for a living and growing tree.
