Oh hello, dream house! Look at this incredible home in Maui, build on sustainable principles. I'd move in in a second. (make sure to check the slideshow, gaah)
I still dream of having a bar cart in my apartment, full of high quality liquors. I would definitely make this beauty of a drink, Boulevardier. The combination of whiskey, red vermouth and Campari sounds like luxurious winter vacation in a glass. Chin-chin.
There is a big movement in the cosmetics industry in eliminating nasty stuff like microplastics and becoming more organic, no doubt. Not so much is happening on the packaging side though. Enter the fantastic female founders of Sulapac, who invented a biodegradable packaging based on wood that is not only eco-friendly but also nice to look at. Hope we'll see more of it on our shelves soon! (via)
Now, that's a beauty of a sporty backpack, the Deep Blue Bag. I'm not only a fan of the minimalistic design, but also all the neat features it comes with. And because the makers of this bag are surfers and hence just like every surfer in general cool people that care about the ocean and environment (at least for the most part, I want to believe), the bag is manufactured using upcycled materials from sails, climbing ropes and wetsuits -- plus proceeds from the bag’s sales go to supporting Sustainable Surf’s Waste to Waves program. You can support the company here.
I'm realizing that I've come to a point where I'm really excited to learn about furniture made of trash. Especially if it looks as pretty as the one of Pentatonic. The company uses aluminum cans, CDs, smartphones and the like -- mostly locally sourced, too! -- to produce its chairs and tables and leaves out the nasty toxic stuff found in glues. Moreover, they offer a buyback incentive for recycling its items. I'd love to see more of such companies and can't wait to pay them a visit in their Berlin shop. (via)
The ladies from Made of Stil put together a colorful list of sustainably produced, fair fashion bags. I have this things with yellow this summer, so I'm all in for the vintage Aigner bag.
This beautiful animated short film "Alike", directed by Spanish filmmakers Daniel Martínez Lara & Rafa Cano Méndez, caught my attention. Now, setting some intentions for this week.
Considering myself a member of this species millennials, I find this house to be rather interesting? Yes for using sustainable thoughts in the concept -- however, I had to chuckle at the hardcore feature "the Wi-Fi is fast".
