As you may have noticed, I'm all about environmental friendliness, social responsibility and hot design. So is Brooklyn, NY based Jed Ela. He created ShitBegone to deliver labor friendly, 100% recycled, soft toilet paper at a valuable price. If you don't live near a bodega that carries it, order a case direct.
Fifty-Cents is Sara Cihat's creative statement about the importance of recycling and the ability to renew value of unwanted things. She finds used dishes, cleans them, applies new designs and re-fires them. The result is fun, funky and feel-good. via urbanSpy [ via Design Sponge ]
Fonebak is a UK based initiative to recycle discarded mobile phones. Participants can drop off their handset at one of several participating shops, or they can mail it to Fonebak directly. The device is then dismantled and whatever bits aren’t eligible for recycling are incinerated using a 0 emissions process. Energy from the incineration contributes to the supply of the nearby town.
