The winning design for repurposing a soon to be decommissioned bridge on the Reggio Calabria Highway in Italy. The self-supporting "village" would include a geothermal plant, rainwater capture and a heating system that runs on methane from a waste biodigestor.
As we develop our own products, we keep a keen eye out for inspiration in thoughtful innovation. Case in point, a project by Ben Huttly, an art student from the UK, who has created packaging that isn't just biodegradable and recyclable, it can be planted. Eat those veggies, then plant some more in your garden.
Design Sponge's Ashley English offers her picks for "a top-10 list of eco reads for whiling away the dark days of winter." Included on the list is The Dirty Life by Kristin Kimball (pictured here), who joined us at last week's Hug Your Farmer benefit for Pete's Greens. We loved this book, and we love Ashley's list.
Thanks to everyone who helped to make "Hug Your Farmer: A Night of Music To Benefit Pete's Greens" an epic night! We raised $26,000, all of which will go towards Pete's rebuild and recovery.
