Creating an eco friendly place could be a big challenge to any architects and if they have done it they way it should be is a great achievement for them. Ecosistema Urbano Architects are now in the process of developing the Eco Boulevard in Vallecas, in Madrid Spain. A public place will have self-sufficient facilities to support everybody’s needs with their daily activities within the area. This project belongs to everyone, and has a goal of creating an atmosphere that invites and promotes activity in an urban public space. It is great to hear that we can now live green without sacrificing what we are currently enjoying with our present lifestyle.

Waste segregation is another way to show how we care the environment. We can separate the recyclable ones from the non-recyclables or wet against dry. Separating our waste can be hard to do, but the Basketbin made it easier for us to do. The basketbin has the retractable small bin wherein you can place your compost. Being small, retractable, and dishwasher safe, this small bin will work perfectly for your compost. The large bin on the other hand will take charge of your paper, plastic, and other recyclable items. With the easy to adopt mechanism that the Basketbin has, this can be a perfect or rather smart choice for your kitchen or office.
