Comments Off on Zero-waste Nomad Chair challenges unsustainable “throwaway” culture

We Do Wood designer Sebastian Jorgensen developed the zero waste Nomad Chair in protest against unsustainable overproduction in the furniture industry. Designed with high-quality and sustainable parts such as certified moso bamboo, the Nomad Chair is a modern interpretation of the classic Roorkhee chair. True to its name, the sturdy and lightweight Nomad Chair is highly portable and can be assembled or disassembled in a matter of seconds. Jorgensen took to Kickstarter to crowdfund the Nomad Chair and successfully reached his US $25,000 goal – and there’s still a limited number of chairs available for purchase at early bird prices. + Nomad Chair Kickstarter The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Unilever uses food waste to save over 1 million metric tons of C02

Unilever has long stood proud as a food manufacturer with lofty sustainability goals—from their adoption of sustainable palm oil to their efforts urging consumers to cut back on waste, stating that food is “too cheap” in the developed world . Now the food giant has announced that they have saved over one million tonnes of C02 since 2008, using—among many other things— Marmite . Yes, that the sticky residue left over from manufacturing the Brit’s ‘love it or loathe it’ spreadable yeast extract is being fed into a waste-to-energy anaerobic digester to generate power to make—you guessed it—Marmite.
