    There are so many, it’s hard to keep up. But I do love the transforming recycled RV that turns from a one story mobile home into a double decker.

    I love the Christian DuCharme Plastic Spoons and Paper Cups Atmospheric Lamp. I think it is very good looking lamp and very creative way to use plastic spoons, I wish this idea came to my head first.

    Currently, my favorite green design is a living wall. I want to find out more and hopefully use the concept in an upcoming project. I saw that you featured it recently in your blog.I love it on so many levels: I love that one can plant a vertical herb garden that is not only productive and useful, but unique, charming and great for indoor air quality. Thanks for continuing to introduce innovative green ideas.

    I don’t know about ya’ll, but I was blown away by this amazing salvaged house in The Netherlands:

    I saw the wall hangings with using cute new modern fabric and the old needlepoint frames. I have a photo saved on my computer so I remember to put it on my to-do list! I was thinking of making them into cork boards underneath the fabric and hanging above my desk!

    Hello! I am a student at Western Washington University and I am designing my own major to be Ecopreneurship and Sustainable Living Design. I am so happy I found the link to this site. It has proven to be very helpful in many of my research projects on sustainable interior design and home renovation. This book would be such a great contribution to my library. As a student, I don’t get a chance to buy many books for fun because all the cool ones cost so much! Winning this book would not only be fricking cool but it would actually propel my studies even further!

    Please please please consider me for the book drawing!
    Happy Halloween :)

    I don’t know if you have heard of Denise Lynn, but she has a great book called “Feng Shui For the Soul”. It’s an excellent book and I recommend it for any book giveaways in the near future.

    Because recycling & repurposing already existing furniture costs less, and may be of better quality than new; it saves energy – buying previously owned furniture saves all the energy of manufacturing and transporting new furniture; and it saves resources.

    Shipping container homes coverage is always my favorite projects that you cover, I bookmark all of them, its such a cool use of an overabundant resource and makes so much sense for different applications around the world.

    I use recycled bicycle wheels, spokes and hubs removed, replaced with a reclaimed dacron sail cloth drum head that I sew. Then I slam in 32 grommets and lace it on with non-stretch line, and when the tire is inflated the drum is tuneable. You can see a YouTube video of this being played at by searching on YouTube for “thesnoopyabc123″. Totally waterproof. I also have pictures.
