1 Watch = 1 Tree planted

27 Apr

Los Angeles based company, WeWood (could it have a funniest name?!), is committed to environment and the health of earth. WeWood crafts wood watches and for each sold product the company plants a tree, thanks to a partnership with American Forests and Global ReLeaf.

The key words of WeWood are: Eco-iconic, eco-minded, non-artificial nor toxic materials and sophisticated sustainability.

WeWood goal: Restore Mother Nature.

This wooden watches are available online, if you want to check it out.

I’m still wondering how will you know if they planted a tree…? And, if they use wood as they main raw material, isn’t it the right thing to do – to plant a tree? If they want to plant a tree so much why they advertise it as kind of its core business?

Do you think the same? Do you like this idea? And what about the watches – cool?

A Cap into a plant!

27 Apr

In Japan they found out a funny way to use PET caps. The company Merry projects created the “Merry farming kits” which includes a tablet of compressed dry soil, that’s just the right size to fit inside a standard plastic soda bottle cap, along with basil seeds for planting.

Apparently they can be find anywhere in Japan, from bookstores to the street (they make several guerrilla campaigns).

I think this is amazing, they created a way to reutilize caps with a fashionable and useful item. They’re basically turn garbage into a beautiful plant :) And nowadays urban gardening is so trendy!!! Of course you could also make a necklace out of the caps, but it would look pretty ugly! :p
