INSIDE: cradle robbing
Posted by Meredith Alexander on 3/08/2008

MEREDITH: I was inspired by Sal’s bedding posts to share this with you. It’s the GREEN CRADLE. It is cardboard, recyclable, and just plain cool. Those of us parents know that a bassinet is such an ephemeral purchase, and it can be quite a costly one. This is the most wonderful option. It can also act as a sweet little toy holder once the babe is in his/her crib. Sadly, I have no use for it so I hope you will.

INSIDE: reuse recycle
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 1/20/2008

HARRY: Here’s a good ‘reuse’ object. Liz Grotyohann, is a New Jersey-based graphic designer uses old magazines to create these classic vases. She lines them with resin so they are watertight. I also came across Chilean designer Rodrigo Alonso Schramm’s N+ew stool on treehugger He has taken electronic waste and created a stool. I’m not sure I like the look of it but I love the idea.

INSIDE: green bags
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 1/10/2008

HARRY: I am always forgetting to bring my various bags to the supermarket. But Envirosax can fix that. They’ve bundled five bags together and folded them up into a handy pouch that fits in the glove compartment of the car (or a large-ish handbag). I figure buy 2 packs - one will always be in the car. And they come in great colours and patterns including a new organic cotton, hemp and linen range.

TRENDS: what’s old is new
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 1/06/2008

SAL: well it’s good to be back! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and got a little bit of a break! The New Year of course brings all these pieces in the design sections about trends for 08. One which specifically resonates with me brings back ideals of a simpler aesthetic using old and vintage pieces to spruce up your rooms. I’ve always been a big fan of flea markets and in the drive to reuse, reduce, recycle, finding new uses for old things seems especially relevant. The LA Times had a great piece on this last week that’s a good jumping off point for inspiration. Else you can kick off your search with a browse through Etsy’s new vintage section. Some lovely finds in there.

INSIDE: aussie blossom
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 12/19/2007

SAL: As Harry would say, this is just a quick one :) One of my New Year’s resolutions is to try and filter my life through more of a green, rather than a rose-tinted lens. We’ve talked about this before, I’m not an evangelist, but I do know that I personally want to make the changes in my own life to be more environmentally responsible about the resources I use and the products I consume. Did that sound preachy? I hope not! We still want to keep it beautiful of course and with that in mind - take a moment to enjoy blossom creations from Australia - stationery with a conscience.
