We often get caught up in the day to day so much that we forget that we all are a part of a much bigger picture…ahem, planet. Earth Day is another great time to make new resolutions geared towards improving your own impact on the planet. These promises will not only benefit your own well-being but ultimately that of Mother Earth.
Here at BottleHood, our team obviously has tried to come up with a better solution for used glass bottles and we can say with confidence that we think we’ve done a pretty good job, but we always strive to do better. It’s when we all go home at night that the mundane takes over and the small things become bigger than they really are. I began searching the internet for things that my co-workers and I could add in our day to day routines outside of the office that would also help out our planet and the environment in which we dwell.
Much to my dismay there were loads of articles on composting. I have always had this misguided image of “Compost” as being some sort of rank creature with knobby fingers that lives in a backyard swamp feeding off of old coffee grinds and banana peels. As I read various articles on composting, my cartoon image of “Compost” began to slip away and found that the concept and delivery could be quite simple if done correctly. How to Compost is a fantastic resource to what is involved in the process and The Garden of Oz provides an easy crash course of the benefits to both your garden and to Mother Earth. Now convinced that my Earth Day Resolution will be to start my own compost project, I found some affordable containers to help conceal the mess. The Environmental Service Department of San Diego even provides workshops to help! Check your local environmental departments to see what they could offer to you.
If you already compost or you are still terrified of the duties involved, 14 Surprising Things That Harm the Planet
is one last article that I found interesting about small and simple things to do. Every person leaves a carbon footprint on this planet and we are all responsible for the things that we take away from our Mother Earth. Please remember that you are not too small to play a part in helping maintain our planets resources for those generations to come. Have a Happy Earth Week everyone!
So much randomness and amusement on my camera from dwell that didn’t seem quite right for posts of their own… from robots following you around to oxen head wireframes… stargate like trellises to walk through to subtle cricket cut outs… piles of squish able big ass fan donkeys to huge bubble buildings… shot glasses made from cut mini grey goose bottles to awesome helmet designs… and so much more! See the Dwell On Design randomness on the next page!
I love what BottleHood is doing for our planet. This company is recycling and re-purposing glassware from wine, beer, liquor, and soda bottles from restaurants, bars, homes, and community events. They turn them into jewelry, bowls, shot glasses, tumblers, and much, much more!
I received their Coca Cola Bottle Juice Glasses. This eco-friendly set of four glasses measure 4″ tall and 2.25″ in diameter. They are small, sweet and are made from limited edition Coke bottles that are currently being released. They’re perfect for your morning juice or try using them as unique bud vases!
Don’t you just love what BottleHood is doing for our neighborhoods?!? This company is just absolutely phenomenal.
