Looking at these cardboard tubes, I see architects, engineers, and architecture and engineering students. They are the ones I saw carrying these tubes on their back going to school or work. I never thought that are other uses of these cardboard tubes and the Chair and table made of these sustainable tubes simply amazes me. Aside from giving these tubes a new life instead of just simply tossing it to the curbside, the project also helps reduce waste and of course, save the environment from the drastic growth of landfills that will harm the environment and us in the future. These sustainably designed furniture pieces will surely look good in our modern homes.
An item considered sustainable is based on various considerations. The Panda stool is not only because of its multi-functional design but also because of the sustainable material used in it, the bamboo. Other than being multi-functional, the Panda Stool is also a space saver with its minimalistic yet stylish design. Presumably, the stool will be useful for both outdoor and indoor use. It will be a perfect seating solution for your dining area, patio, and more. Business individuals can also have the Panda stool as their stools at the restaurant, bars, and the like as well as in every modern office pantry.
Just like newspapers, books are considered trash after reading especially if it is a textbook or activity book. Except of course to those books you want to read repeatedly. Building with books is just a great way to make use of those piles of old books we have at home instead of just simple tossing them out. Building with books can possibly create a comfortable chair, a catchy shelf and a lot more. All we just need is to be creative as we can be. In this way, we can help reduce waste, give our old books a new life, and help save the environment.
Recycling things is very easy and common when it comes to helping save the environment. This probably is the easiest and many opt to have it as their share in caring the environment as all they have to do is to collect old items and used it one more time for a more useful thing. The only difference that one can make their upcycled items or collections made of recycled items standout among others is to apply some art on it or put some artistic touch on it. The Greene Avenue Collection includes lovely bench chairs that are made from recycled orphan chairs. Three chairs of different age are put together creating a stylish artistic lovely bench for your hallway, backyard patio, dining table and more.
It is refreshing to in the woods especially during summer where every place in the city are hot and humid. You must be lucky if you live near the woods, for you have all the chance of getting into the woods anytime you feel like hot or humid and be there as long as you want. To maintain the beauty of the woods, an occasional cutting of the trees would be beneficial as it will give room for the young trees to grow healthy. Instead of discarding the cut trunks, it would be helpful if you will use it in a more useful and earth-friendly way. The Bosbank is just one of the great products you can take as sample. This wooden bench is made of natural tree trunk. To complete the bench, a four set of legs and galvanized brackets are installed and fixed using two orange straps, one on both ends.
I know many of us love reading magazines especially the glossy ones as they have excellent photos apart from the enticing articles we can read. After we read and re-reads all the article contents of a certain magazine, here comes the waste disposal problem that each of us surely have encountered. We do not have enough space at home to keep them and we will be adding so much to our landfills if we destined them to the curbside. The Magazine seat is the solution. Thanks to Hockenheimer who have the initiative to design the seat that make use of our old magazines. The seat has the wooden platform where you can pile up your magazine and top it off with soft cushioning for comfort. Put the magazine and cushioned seat together using a stylish belt, which surely will add up to the unique and elegant look of this eco-friendly furniture piece.
Our kids can already enjoy a clean lifestyle if let them be. Let us start with their crib. The Hollis Crib is a Charles Hollis Jones inspired mattress for your babies. It comes in clear acrylic finish, which added to the beauty and elegance of the product. The Crib has 3 level recyclable mattresses. What made this stylish crib a sustainable one is the use of non-toxic and recyclable Lucite. Parents must note that once the baby starts to climb, they must stop using the crib. The toddler bed on the other hand has the ability to carry up to 50lbs of weight.
Recycling newspaper seems like to be the focus of eco-friendly designers nowadays. I wonder if they still got resources when many of the people worldwide are now becoming dependent to the internet when it comes to the latest news local and international. Anyway, Andrew Peterson is just another designer that make use of recycled newspaper in creating his seating solution masterpiece with the help of an epoxy to get the pieces stick together. The designer uses a male and female molding to form the chair seat and a cardboard for the chair’s frame. When talking about its materials used, the Epoxy chair is obviously an eco-friendly one.
Designing a new eco-friendly piece can be done in various ways. With John Wiegand-Forson, he used existing products in designing new furniture pieces. One of the greatest creations he had is the chair made of old bicycle frames. Looking at the photos, the chairs are stylish enough that you would never think of being made from recycled items. The product is a great tool to help us save the environment without compromising the essence of style and elegance of our home interior design. Aside from the chair made from recycled bike frame, the designer also have other elegant designs and all made of used and existing materials.
Cardboard is now widely used as well as a form of keeping the environment safe. This Third Year Final requirement for Savio Ku looks like a no ordinary cardboard computer table. It looks sturdy enough to hold an LCD monitor and it comes with some shelves on the side for your little items. The table looks easy to assemble and can be disassembled for travel purposes. With those slits available on the table, you can simply insert its connecting part. I find the table simple yet elegant enough to be in our homes. Ones the life of this table come to an end, this surely will be safe to dispose as cardboard easily decompose.
