Comments Off on “Family cloths” reusable toilet wipes: gross or great?

  Many of us who try to lead eco-conscious lifestyles are likely already using many reusable, washable fabric items for both household and personal use. Cotton dish cloths, washable baby diapers , handkerchiefs , and Glad Rags-type menstrual cloths are growing in popularity, but there’s one area in which we may all be eco-offenders: the ‘loo. Enter “family cloths”, also known as reusable toilet paper. These are washable strips of cotton flannel that folks can use to wipe with, but are they just too gross for most people to consider?

Comments Off on This cleverly designed bamboo bike charges mobile devices

Bambootec, a consortium from Yucatán, Mexico , has created a bamboo bicycle that turns pedaling into electricity for charging mobile devices. The bike also has a navigation dashboard in the handlebars, which measures distance and time, and a bluetooth connection. It’s an impressive piece of engineering—particularly  if the designs are simple enough to be built by hand by individuals in areas where rolling blackouts are a part of daily life. + BambooTec Mérida Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Read the rest of This cleverly designed bamboo bike charges mobile devices Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: appropriate technology , bambootec , bambootec merida , charging phone with bike , electricity from bicycle , mexico , yucatan

Comments Off on Scientists have determined that inebriated birds sing drunkenly too

Anyone who’s ever visited a karaoke bar is likely very familiar with the fact that people sing a lot differently when they’re drunk, versus when sober. Guess what? It turns out that the same goes for birds . A group of scientists at Oregon Health and Science University have found that just like singing off-key , slurring, and missing cues are just a few ways that our boozehound friends will mangle tunes after they’ve knocked back a few, songbirds who imbibe react the exact same way… minus the drunk-dialling later, of course.

We’ve showcased numerous bamboo designs over the years, from furniture to entire buildings, but when it comes to combining green building and renewable materials, Ibuku’s incredible bent-bamboo buildings take the cake. The Bali-based bamboo building team already has luxury villas, houses, schools and infrastructure buildings in their portfolio, and is renowned for their dedication to using traditional Indonesian building techniques .

Sustainable photoluminescent architecture has the potential to light up the night

Comments Off on Sustainable photoluminescent architecture has the potential to light up the night

Architect Eleonora Nicoletti has a rather bright idea: she’s proposing the use of photoluminescent architecture that glows in the dark without electric power. These structures could be used for everything from theatrical sets to living spaces, and work by absorbing invisible ultraviolet radiation from ambient light and then re-emitting that energy as visible light once the sun sets, illuminating the nighttime world in a sustainable way. Available in a wide variety of colors and shapes, they provide visually stunning experience, and also help people save energy and money while reducing carbon dioxide emissions. + Eleanora Nicoletti Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
