Plastic use is so habitual (at least for me). What changes are you making to reduce your own plastic "consumption"? Making little -- and big! -- changes together, we can make a difference. 💥(Powerful cover @natgeo and thanks to @zooeydeschanel for taking up the charge to raise consciousness!) 🌱#repost #nationalgeographic #plasticwaste #consumeless #consciousconsumer #throwawayculture #littlechanges #bigresults #allin #wereallinthistogether #letsgetgrowing

In this era of #hyperconsumption & #instantgratification bringing #environmental issues to the forefront can feel relentlessly challenging. Keeping me inspired on my journey are countless individuals who are doing their part to battle #throwawayculture & #waste. They encourage new ways of thinking about old things or in some cases, old ways of thinking about new things. Whatever your #community or #cause - whether you're a #naturelover #consciousconsumer #minimalist #zerowaste, down for a #fashrev, or whatever else -we all have something in common, an underlying love for life on this planet we call home. Let's keep protecting it 💚🌎 #spreadlove #savetheplanet #protectwhatyoulove #ecofriendly #earthhappy #midweekmotivation #positivevibes #wcw

Controversial Chinese artist Ai Weiwei repurposed 886 wooden stools to create a staggering stacked installation for the 2013 Venice Art Biennale. Featured at the German Pavilion, Weiwei’s “Bang” installation investigates traditional Chinese craftsmanship through toppling towers of stools that stretch from the floor to the rafters. The installation touches upon Chinese tradition and cultural values through the use of the stools, which are often passed down from generation to generation.

The three-legged stools hanging every which way in Weiwei’s “Bang” are from an era of craftsmanship that has since been eclipsed by the modern industrial age. Once made by hand from wood, the stools have stood the test of time and were handed down from one generation to the next. These stools were used by countless family members in domestic situations; they lasted for centuries and were not simply discarded due to shifts in fashion and cultural trends.

Weiwei’s “Bang” criticizes modern throw-away culture, which has replaced artisans and craftsman with industry and factories. Hand carved wood has been replaced by disposable plastic and aluminum. Weiwei arranged the handmade stools in chaotic bursts and arcs as a metaphor for the industrial world that has spiraled out of control as industry and technology develop at incredible rates.

The incredible installation will be on display in the German Pavilion throughout the Biennale.

We have been so busy lately so we haven't been as active on here as we would like, time seems to be flying by! But here's a little bit of what we have been up to lately,
We live in a small bungalow and its quite quirky so we don't have very much storage space or general sized empty space to put anything that we have seen in the shops, so we decided to build something but we wanted it to look nice and fit in with our style; we came up with this shelving unit, made it to measure and the shelves are spaced apart differently so that we can store some crates on it too. Once it is all complete we will share the finished piece with you all, it is made entirely out of reclaimed scaffolding and has (as always) been well finished and varnished so that any spills won't ruin this beautiful piece.
We know how hard it can be to find storage solutions that fit your home so if you would be interested in something like this for your own home we can make them to fit your home perfectly just drop us a DM and we will get back to you! 😊♻️

Both are economical and ecologically beneficial but one cup is often met by some with sounds of 'urr' instead of 'oooh'. .
There's nothing unhygienic about using a menstrual cup like there's nothing unhygienic about reusing a cup you put your mouth lips to opposed to your hidden lips; as long as you clean both thoroughly the environment and your purse will thank you for it

Hotel Trias. Palamós 2018. Tourist-throw-away-architecture. The quality and care of the arquitecture created in order to sustain a vast amount of tourism, was a process of fast-uninteresting-unsustainable buildings which remain. Now filled with the scars of time, the pale look of an old person with make up (remember Dirk Bogarde at the end of "Death in Venice") that same decadence shakes all these buildings in a sad shadows of a forgotten era. Indeed it is now that they get my atention. #tourismarquitecture #lowbudgetarquitecture #throwawayculture #masstourismdevastation #weportraitlife

Beach clean this morning at Havoc with Friends of Dumbarton Foreshore. 10.30. Meet at Clydeshore Road, furthest point from Dumbarton Rock. Pickers and gloves provided. Or #BYO if you’re a seasoned plogger. Might even have a coffee or unicorn hot chocolate afterwards.

every morning starts with a walk with winston to @cafeno.33 for coffee. i realised i was going through a shit load of disposable coffee cups which sucks so i got myself this badass reusable guy from @frankgreen_official ☕️🌿 looks great, works great and is another small step towards giving single-use culture the middle finger. 🤘#coffee #frankgreen #keepcup #pug #morning #walks #singleuse #sustainability #throwawayculture #reuse
