Driftwood iPhone Charging Dock

shop
One-of-a-kind iPhone station juxtaposes timeless nature with modern tech $72.00

That's where they collect the pieces of driftwood they use to craft these one-of-a-kind iPhone charging docks, each of which carries its own special narrative, "from seed to tree to sandy shore." The finished product is a interesting......read more

You wouldn't be faulted for thinking there is some environmental commentary in Phoebe Washburn's work. The Brooklyn artist builds large scale landscape installations using repurposed detritus she collects from the street, from cardboard boxes and old newspapers to construction materials and discarded plastic.

Dutch 'recyclitects' transform dumpsters into public buildings

Here's another cool green design project from (surprise!) Holland, where designers Rikkert Paauw and Jet van Zwieten offer a hefty dose of symbolism by transforming old garbage dumpsters into functional mini-buildings.  Dubbed "Recykiosks," the structures were built using dumpsters filled with discarded construction waste.

Santa Monica skate company brings sustainability to the streets

A tuned-in skate shop owner in Santa Monica boils down the basic tenets of the SHFT philosophy - that we need to bring sustainability to culturally relevant places. And that today's youth will gravitate towards green living when it's presented to them in the context of what they do in their every day lives. We think he's right, and Arbor Skateboards nails it on both counts....read more

The Voodoo Doll, Comet Skateboards

shop
One of the first sustainably designed skateboards on the market $99.95

We love Comet. Not only do they make rad looking boards, but their manufacturing decisions are guided by the concept of "Cradle to Cradle" (C2C) as developed by William McDonough and Michael Braungart. C2C eliminates the concept of waste through "closed loop" manufacturing, which examines the entire life-cycle of all products and bi-products of the system. They are also a......read more

Strange skate sculptures photographed by Hugues Lawson-Body

Arthur King, the Paris-based, Colette-affiliated DJ/producer/artist, has unveiled a series of absurd skateboards that are wholly unsuitable for skating.
