Art, Fashion and Environment

27 Apr

On April 21st 2011 was the first anniversary of the BP environmental disaster and some artists infiltrated the Tate Britain Museam to protest! Apparently BP is a big sponsor of the institution and the artists want this partnership to end. So they covered a naked man in oil-like liquid on the classical sculpture exhibit room


Christine Esposito creates cool pieces with soda cans. Check her website for other products

Ana Yago and journalist Jose Antonio Gimenez have a design studio – Sanserif Creatius – where they create beautiful cardboard furniture. It’s ecological and pretty stylish.

Polish Designer Karina Marusinska creates jewelry with industrial waste. Sounds difficult? When I saw the photo of the pile of garbage I was shocked!!! So many things there! I’m glad someone decided to use it wisely…

Zoe Bradley is an awesome artist. He creates astonishing things with paper and he even worked for McQueen!

Love this idea! Art + Toys + Recycling

Christian Louboutin messed with garbage?! You have to see it to believe it!

Old Oil into Candles

27 Apr

The first time that I heard about this new product I was thrilled. I’m that kind of person that freaks out when the cooking oil is overused and has to go to the garbage.  I read once, that one drop of cooking oil pollutes the same water as a human being pollutes is all life. 1 DROP!!! (I’m aware that this is exaggerated, but it scares huh?)

Did you know that just 1 liter of wasted cooking oil can contaminate 1 million liters of water?!

So you gotta love this machine! Oon Home Recycling Solutions is a Lisbon-based company that develops innovative green products.

Oon Candlemaker transforms old cooking oil into fragrant decorative candles! How awesome is this?

You are not just saving the planet by polluting less (reducing), but you’re also recycling and reutilizing oil as candles. And the best part is: The candles have fragrance!

For me this is one of the most (if not the most) creative sustainable gadget of all time!

Fragrances:

  • spicy orange
  • cozy jasmine
  • blueberry smoothie
  • sea lemons
  • handpicked apples
  • sweet coffee cream
  • naked soul (whatever that is)

The Oon Candlemaker is a great product and has an astonishing design. It only costs 199€ and it comes with seven pods (that neutralize the oil smell, and provide color and fragrance to the candles). Check how it works on their website.
