Recycling items is challenging, as materials used are generally considered useless. However, the shallow thinking about supposed to be discarded materials does not affect Gert Eussen. He was able to reclaimed the used pebbles or bricks in their restructured garden and was able to create a sustainable small dome from it. Aside from the reclaimed pebbles, recycled woods are also used to create the dome’s door. Though the dome measure short and small and cannot be considered as a real home, the designer thinks that it is highly possible to build houses using the same reclaimed materials. Since pebbles and bricks are normally made of clay, the Rubble Bubble dome surely feel cold inside even when its scorching hot outside.
We have seen so many eco-friendly designs from designers who want to do their part in saving the environment. With sustainable sources, the use of Bamboo is now becoming popular and the Bamboo Stirrers by Chinese manufacturers Bambu. As its name suggests, the stirrers are made of Bamboo. Another added green feature of the stirrers is it being handmade. The stirrers are approximately at 8” long and thus it can be used comfortable to stirrup your juice and other beverages in tall glasses. Available in a set of two, you and your partner can now easily enjoy a sustainable drink together.
When it comes to using bamboo, a sustainable use of resources surely will come first to every environmentalist’s mind. This is because bamboo is a fast growing plant and can easily replenish in a short span, thus using bamboo won’t show any harm to the environment and thus using it is indeed eco-friendly. The Bamboo Forest House in Taiwain by London based ROEWUarchitecture uses bamboo as its façade, which surely will create a cooler feel to the home interior. If you have not yet been into bamboo bed, you surely do not have any idea how cool bamboo is. If I were to choose bamboo bed over any other beds, I definitely choose bamboo especially during hot season.
In my childhood, I can remember my brother and his dynamos. He used it to power his toy cars. I am not really familiar with dynamos not until a great submission from Joan Rojeski disseny sostenible team to IGreenSpot was made. The group presented an eco-friendly lamp called the Lham Lamp. Looking at its photos, the lamp looks elegant enough to be in your modern home. You can have it used to both indoor and outdoor purposes. The lamp uses LED lighting technology and a dynamo for its power needs. With all these features and sleek design, tell me if this is not sustainable enough.
Eco-friendly furniture designs are getting stylish as time flies. If you think that eco-friendly furniture has the worst look and design, you must then think a million times.

The chair carried the elegant look and it surely will be perfect for your dining area or waiting area of your home or office. The chair will be launched at The Dock, London on September 22, 2010 for the London Design Festival, which will be happening on September 20 to 26.

Shipping pallets are known to be discarded after its useful life. However, in my place we sometimes reuse it in rebuilding our fences, which is very easy to build as shipping pallets comes in uniform design and sizes. All you have to do is to put them together. However, I-Beam was able to create a more useful thing on these used shipping pallets and resulted into a stunning sustainable emergency shelter. The design was supposed to be as temporary housing for refugees of the Baltic war in the 90s, it turns out to be affordable and robust enough for families to reestablish a homestead.
It is so nice to see numerous designs that take advantage of sustainable energy sources like the sun. If I have the knowledge of designing items, I would definitely do the same, not only save some amount of money from my electricity bill that continues to skyrocket each month, but to help save the environment as well. Japan-based designer Koichi Okamoto had created the Solar Powered Mobile Lights. Like any other solar powered lamps, the Solar Powered Lights charges its battery on daylight and illuminates at night. What made this light an exception to any other solar powered lamp that we see in the market today is its cute and eye-catching illumination. The bright illumination that it produces create a look that mimics the constellation of stars at night when hang as a group making it an ideal tool for your home décor. During daytime, the Solar Powered Mobile Lights are like flying sticks on air that look good as they are at night.
