Eco friendly headphones from Thinksound


Thinksound has come up with a range of headphones that care for the environment, well, in their manufacturing at least. The earbuds are made from real wood and renewable resources, while the wires are PVC free, minimal plastics and the packing itself uses bleach-free recycled materials. The entire package of the headphones is eco-friendly, but no compromises were made on sound quality.

SunChips returns with eco-friendly biodegradable bags

SunChips returns with eco-friendly biodegradable bags


SunChips had earlier made a laudable effort by going for eco-friendly biodegradable packaging. Sadly though, consumers found the bags to be “too loud” and had to be discontinued. This time SunChips hopes to have worked around the problem, with bags that can keep their mouth shut. Apparently, a tiny layer of rubber adhesive between the inner and outer layers can handle the work, reducing noise from these bags to nearly the same as conventional bags.

Billboards recycled into wallets and other objects

Billboards recycled into wallets and other objects


Billboards happen to be omnipotent, and when the graphic has served its use, it mostly ends up landing in some landfill. Malaysia-based Etsy user NottyPooch puts these billboards to good use, creating wallets, MacBook sleeves, coaster sets and other similar things. Given the size of billboards and crafty execution of these products, they have no clear sign of the product they once advertised, transforming into a clean, trendy package.

Artist paints dead trees into colorful revival

Artist paints dead trees into colorful revival


Dead trees aren’t really attention grabbers, but for artist Curtis Killorn, they make a great canvas. The artist paints dead trees in the mountains of Colorado, converting them into vibrant and colorful public art. Killorn says “Nature is already so beautiful and full of such depth and grace… and it is NOT my intention to mask or enhance it in any way. Much in the way that we paint each other’s skin out in the desert, the intention is bring out the beauty which is already there.”

Kandahar, Afghanistan isn’t exactly the place where you’d expect a soldier to have toys on his mind. The most interesting things however, appear where they’re least expected. Rupert Valero, a US soldier in Afghanistan, gathers locally available junk when off-duty, converting all that into action figures. Some of Valero’s creations are available on Etsy as well.
