Comments Off on UK Student Builds Surprisingly Sturdy Stools With Bacteria, Sand and Pee

Edinburgh College of Art student Peter Trimble has built a ready-made machine for making compostable furniture. Called Dupe, the machine converts sand, urine and bacteria into a new biomaterial similar to concrete. Trimble’s Dupe stools are surprisingly sturdy, and at the end of their lifetime they can be broken up and used as a fertilizer.

DIY: How to Sprout Seeds and Beans On Your Kitchen Counter

Comments Off on DIY: How to Sprout Seeds and Beans On Your Kitchen Counter

At my local grocery store, out here in the middle of nowhere, a head of cauliflower costs $5 and a wilted ball of lettuce might run you $3. It’s a far cry from the vibrant fruit and vegetable markets we were accustomed to in downtown Toronto, and is a bit daunting when it comes to grocery budgeting for a pair of veggie-vores. It’ll be a few more months until local farmers’ markets are filled with greens and our own garden is lush with vegetables, so until then, we make do with what’s available and take advantage of one of the few greens that can be grown indoors year-round: sprouts . It’s incredibly easy to sprout seeds and beans on your kitchen counter with just a few simple household tools.
