No screws, glues, or other fasteners are required to assemble Ruche —a sustainable shelving system created by industrial designer Ruthy Shafrir . This smart shelving unit is designed to be different: available in either cardboard or aluminum, it has a distinctive geometric shape that contributes to its stability and strength. It comes in three sizes and four colors, and is made entirely of r ecycled and recyclable materials. Flat-packed for low carbon footprint shipping, Ruche has been made with particular attention to high-quality, low-impact materials and manufacturing, and its “piece of cake” assembly doesn’t require any tools or special skills whatsoever. Just slide the pieces together, and you have a storage system that’s perfect for anything you choose to stack into it.

You’ve probably noticed how popular is cardboard in the world of sustainable products lately. Following the examples of foldable furniture and cardboard surfboards , a team from Eindhoven, the Netherlands, has introduced SUstand : an elegant and environmentally-friendly alternative to plastic tablet stands. Designed to minimize paper waste, these stands are pre-cut on a piece of 100 percent recycled cardboard . A little push here, a slight bend there, and you’re suddenly the owner of four adjustable stands that can hold any tablet, phablet, or smartphone. By year’s end, there will be a crowdfunding campaign for producing SUstands directly from paper waste (like supermarket boxes) to reduce the environmental impact even further. SUstands will be available during the Dutch Design Week (October 18-26) at the Temporary Art Centrum , Eindhoven, the Netherlands. + SUstand Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on How Can an Outdoor Aquaponics System Survive a Frigid Winter? Use Upcycled Fridges as Tanks

In our quest for a better aquaponics, we each face our challenges. Here in Wisconsin, we average five feet of snow in wintertime along with temperatures below -20°F, and often go two solid months without a single day above freezing. When we try to grow plants in winter, our main battle is with the cold.  Growing Power and Nelson & Pade , both here in Wisconsin, offer one solution which basically involves heating your greenhouses all winter long. A large commercial operation with high sales prices or a cheap source of heat may justify this, but as an urban homeowner with a backyard system the numbers don’t add up.

Comments Off on Greenbean Recycling Gives E-Cash Rewards Through Its Reverse Vending Machines

It is easy to see the impact recycling can make on the environment and your bank account after unloading several large bags of bottles and cans at a center. Yet it is much more difficult to observe what tossing one or two items into a bin can do for the greater good. Civil engineer Shanker Sahai has developed a reverse vending machine that is able to demonstrate the power of conscious waste disposal while also allowing individual users to make a little money. Greenbean Recycle gives an instant deposit into the account of your choice as well as collects data so that you can compete with friends as to who will hold the title of top recycler.

For the 2013 International Garden Festival , Massachusetts-based architecture firm Ecoid unveiled Smart Small , a garden composed of hundreds of small modular units that highlight the beauty and intelligence of mosses. To grow mosses successfully, they require a certain level of wind, shade and moisture because they obtain all their nutrients from the air. Creating heterogeneous microclimate, the units are self-contained habitats, and they could be used in a wide variety of landscape architecture applications, ranging from green roofs to indoor gardens. + Ecoid The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
