Comments Off on Sustainability Library Designed by London College of Communication Students

A group of year one BA (Hons) Spatial Design students at the London College of Communication were given a live project to promote sustainable design within LCC. Joy Williams and Ashleigh Nutton collaborated to design a sustainability library that could be used for special talks, as well as a mobile book unit that could be transported to other locations. The unit that will be used as a lecture space and permanent sustainability library was brightened up with eco-paints such as Ecos Organic and Little Greene , while the floor tiles were donated by Interface ; a sustainable flooring company. Seating has been created by folding used clothing and stacking them into small benches. Made primarily from donated. up cycled materials, the mobile bookstand was built from reclaimed wooden pallets and MDF from a local scrap yard, and the wheels came from an old shopping trolley. Over the 2014-2015 school year, both the space and the mobile unit will be used for a series of guest expert talks on sustainability and books organized by Barbara Salvadori. + B.A. Spacial Design Program The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Illegal Wild Cheetah Trade for Luxury Pets is Pushing Species to Extinction, CITES Report

A new report has confirmed that the status-driven, illegal trade in live cheetahs is pushing vulnerable wild populations of the big cats to extinction. Cheetah cubs are poached from the wild and transported to the Gulf States across the Horn of Africa, and research reveals that up to 70 percent of the cubs do not survive the journey. The report, issued by CITES , has finally led the countries affected by the trade to agree to take urgent counter-measures.
