THE BEST Sustainable

Nike Space Hippie Collection

Nike Space Hippie Collection

“If they look weird, that’s because they’re made of trash.” Nike’s funky and sustainable Space Hippie line is made from 50% recycled materials by weight, including reground rubber, foam scraps, and Flyknit yarns made from recycled plastic bottles, t-shirts, and yarn scraps. We love how the design embraces the irregularities.

Off-Grid Island Home

Off-Grid Island Home

Exploring Alternatives introduces us to Catherine and Wayne, who have lived for nearly 30 years on a tiny man-made island in Tofino, BC, Canada. Freedom Cove was built by hand, using recycled and sustainable materials. It has multiple greenhouses, an art gallery, and a floating dance floor.

Feel the Peel Machine

Feel the Peel Machine

Created by Carlo Ratti for Italian energy company ENI, this unique kiosk is designed to show how technology can enable sustainability. Its long, circular rail gradually releases oranges to be juiced, then dries and mills the discarded peels to create a bioplastic filament used by a 3D printer to make biodegradable cups.

Dirtball Green Jean

Dirtball Green Jean

Dirtball Fashion specializes in 100% recycled clothing. Their latest lineup addition, the Green Jean, is made of cotton and water bottles. We missed out on the Kickstarter but discounted pre-orders are still available for Nov. shipping.

Phoenix Bamboo Concept Car

Phoenix Bamboo Concept Car

An unusual vehicle made from sustainable materials, designers Kenneth Cobonpue and Albrecht Birkner’s car would have a woven skin, replaceable after it biodegrades. Not the most practical concept, but still visually striking.
