How to make it (and ReMake It) Green!

Interested in greening your business practices? In the New York City area? Come visit the Uncommon Goods Design Panel this Tuesday, February 5 in Brooklyn, NY. I'll be speaking alongside Rebecca Krauss of EcoBiz NYC and Yuka Yoneda of Inhabitat at this fun eco-event.

It's at Powerhouse Arena in Dumbo Brooklyn and is sure to be loaded with "trash talk" and other eco-tidbits that you can take with you and apply to your own biz. Space is limited, so check it out and register today!

Happy ReMaking!

A "Visionary" Chandelier

I recently saw this light fixture made from used contact lens cases over at Core77. The chandelier is made by Klaus Rosberg of SONIC.

I've been collecting my own contact lens cases, just knowing that someday I'll find the perfect project to apply them to. I think this chandelier has a visionary look and is focused on a great, upcycled solution.

A dog to the rescue!

My favorite holiday gift was something that I picked out all by myself and was recycled, too! I'm pleased to share that the newest addition to my household is Tomatilla (Tia for short) who I found through Operation Ava in Philadelphia. She's super tiny at only about 8 pounds, but makes up for it with whole lot of personality and love. She was found on the streets of North Philly and they estimate her age at about 3 years old. She came very well trained and luckily does not have the habits of a yippy dog.

This Pomeranian is the best thing I could've brought home for the holidays and was a huge hit with my niece and nephew. I absolutely love her. One of my friends even called her the "cutest dog in the world" Her words, not mine. Although I do agree. I highly recommend getting your own rescue dog to spreading more recycled pet love.
