Comments Off on Juniper Ridge Launches New Winter Redwood Backpacker’s Cologne

Half the country may be buried under snow, but warmer weather is on the way – and we can’t wait to spend temperate evenings relaxing around a campfire in the great outdoors. In the meanwhile, Juniper Ridge ‘s new Winter Redwood Backpacker’s Cologne will tide us over. This wildcrafted fragrance captures the experience of camping in the misty mountains north of San Francisco; bright green pine needles fan through wisps of wood embers before fading into rain-soaked earth. Winter Redwood is steam-distilled from sustainably harvested plants, bark, and moss and it’s available in a limited run of 337 hand-numbered bottles – so grab one quick before they go up in smoke. + Winter Redwood Backpacker’s Cologne + Juniper Ridge Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: backpackers cologne , Botanical , green design , green fragrances , green products , juniper ridge , redwood , sustainable design , sustainable fragrance , sustainable scent , wildcrafted , wildcrafted fragrance , Winter Redwood

Comments Off on Studio Levitate’s New Oak Walkway Restores Access to 16th Century Sandsfoot Castle

Studio Levitate designed a lightweight walkway made from oak for a ruined 16th century castle in the UK. Due to coastal erosion, the Sandsfoot Castle in Dorset was designated as unsafe for visitors and has been closed since 1930s. The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) commissioned the UK-based design firm to reinstate access to the castle and enable visitors to navigate its interior.

Comments Off on Greenward Ridge Vent Turns Your Entire Roof Into a Solar Collector

Sometimes the most impressive products at Greenbuild are the most innocuous and boring looking things; last year I thought the best of show was Agriboard , a SIP made from straw. This year I spent some time trying to figure out this ridge vent for a standard shingled roof with tubes running through it, thinking that there wasn’t much surface area on it and it isn’t going to do much.
