Comments Off on Beautiful zero-waste bowls are made entirely from leaves

Nicknamed the “one-way dishes,” these leaf bowls are made with zero plastics, additives, oils, glues, or chemicals. All bowls are made in a German factory near Munich using CNC mills and pressing machines. Each biodegradable bowl is made from three layers: a waterproof leaf-made paper layer sandwiched between two layers of pressed and stitched leaves. The bowls also come with an optional lid made from bioplastic or recycled plastic . Related: Award-winning biodegradable agar packaging could replace plastic “This is not only about outdoor tableware,” writes Leaf Republic. “It is about food packaging. It is about preventing plastic waste. It is about preventing trees from being cut for paper production. It is about the next generations.” Leaf Republic is currently raising funds to take their biodegradable tableware off the ground and into a fully automated production line. You can help the company and buy a set of Leaf Republic plates by pledging support on their Kickstarter . + Leaf Republic Kickstarter Images via Leaf Republic

Comments Off on Could England be getting a life-size version of this Lord of the Rings city?

If you’ve always pictured yourself as a hero of Tolkien-esque proportions, here’s your chance to live like one. A group of architects and structural engineers are running an Indiegogo campaign to lift Tolkein’s fantastical city of Minas Tirith out of Middle Earth and plop it right into middle England. With the less-than-modest goal of raising more than $3 billion in 60 days, they need your help, especially if you have a few billion dollars earmarked for odd urban development projects.

Why we should worry about the cocaine problem facing Italian eels

Comments Off on Why we should worry about the cocaine problem facing Italian eels

There are vast quantities of man-made waste polluting our oceans and waterways—studies have found that fish are being poisoned by plastic microbeads and around 50 percent of sea turtles are ingesting our plastic waste . But the eels of Italy’s Sarno River have an additional concern; around 15 grams of cocaine flow down the highly polluted waterway every day—that’s around $1300-1800 worth. Scientists have been exposing European eels to low doses of the drug to see what the long term effects are, and while there’s no word on whether or not the slippery creatures become outrageously tedious to their friends, it’s clear the drug has some highly troublesome effects on the eels.

Lloyd Godman’s experimental air plant sculpture teaches students about tensegrity

Comments Off on Lloyd Godman’s experimental air plant sculpture teaches students about tensegrity

Artist Lloyd Godman developed SPICEE, an experimental air plant sculpture suspended on the rooftop of the Friends School Hobart in Australia. Created as part of the school’s Quaker in Residence program, the permanent installation teaches students the Buckminster Fuller concept of Tensegrity , a structural principle that uses pre-stressed tensioned elements to create a system of continuous tension. The art piece is made from stainless steel and uses six tubes to symbolize the Quaker testimonials behind the acronym SPICEE: Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, and Earth Care. Living Tillandsia air plants are attached to SPICEE with special wire, and excess plant growth will be harvested to create more living plant artworks. + Lloyd Godman The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
