Comments Off on Artist sculpts lifelike grizzly bear from recycled cardboard

Artist Claudio Barake has been sculpting with recycled materials for many years. Using only discarded paper, wood, and cardboard, the artist crushes these found materials into a juice used as BioFuel and the remaining fibers are used to produce a flourless papier-mâché pulp. This solid cardboard Grizzly Bear measures 42cm in height and stands regally on a Peroba reclaimed wood base. The color, natural cardboard, is perfectly fitting for a Grizzly. + BARAKE PAPIER MACHÊ The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ?

Throughout the course of his or her life, the average child will break more than a few toys. Some will be loved to death, while others might meet a more sudden demise in a childhood experiment gone horribly wrong. Either way, we’re left wondering what to do with the bits and pieces that used to be a plaything. Inspired by the classic fruit and vegetable paintings of Guiseppe Archimboldo, artist Freya Jobbins transforms cast off doll parts and broken toys into somewhat terrifying sculptures of faces, bodies and even Darth Vader. We’re all for upcycling, but these creepy sculptures definitely made us shiver. Follow the link below to see more pics.

Although ocean beaches are one of the most beautiful parts of nature, they’re also the place we’re most likely to come face to face with the ugly side of overconsumption. Beaches around the world are littered with plastic waste–everything from plastic bags to flip flops. One company has spent years fishing these cast-off shoes from the surf, not to transport them to the landfill, but to create something new and wonderful from what was once trash. Ocean Sole, a flip flop recycling company based in Nairobi, Kenya, has collected over 400,000 plastic sandals from the shores of the Indian Ocean and turned them into sculptures, household items, fashion accessories, gifts, stationary, and more.
