Designed by Filipino industrial designer Stephen Reon Francisco, the Smart Garden Cart is a perfect tool to make gardening a lot easier. The cart is designed ergonomically for your hand to be extra comfortable with it. Aside from the ergonomic design, the cart is also extremely lightweight but durable enough to carry your heavy gardening tools, equipments, soils and other garden materials and tools. It is not only the handle, which is redesigned in this product but also the form and uses of the cart. One cart can mean a lot to you. It has various functions that you will definitely appreciate and most of all; it can help you save some amount of money.
The redesigned handle of the Smart Garden Cart now has the design mimicking the ears of a rat creating a unique, sleek, and modern look of the cart’s body. The cart’s built-in garden tool holder is the one’s responsible for keeping your garden tools all in one place. The cart can be used in three ways. First, you can use it as your transportation tool for your heavy tools and plant pots. Second use is to have it as the modern substitute of your traditional wheelbarrow, so you can transport soil, stones, and woods easily. Finally, the third use is to have the cart as your Smart Garden Cart used for transporting heavy items like boxes as well as crates.

When an oil spill incident happens in my place, I’ve heard known salon collecting human hairs and donate it to the restoration group as hair helps remove oil. They have even invited individuals to have their hairs cut for a fee just to collect the right amount of hair. I thought the use of human hair ended right there but I was wrong. Designer Kerry Howley has just created an award winning necklace design using human hairs. Since it will surely be made from cut hair, no one will be hurt from this wonderful creation. There will be no mining done like what gold has done to nature and no carbon emission produce to complete this creation. It looks so natural as well and elegant for daily use and even on special occasions. This design will surely reduce waste as well, since cut hairs are simply tossed and destined to landfills.
