Pre-composting Waste with GreenCycler

Today, the GreenCycler is making its debut at West Coast Green 2010.  This is a "small-footprint" countertop or cabinet appliance that shreds organic kitchen waste and deposits it in a storage and transfer container.  In other words, GreenCycler is helpful in pre-composting waste into a size that's just right for quick composting.

Fresh Pallet Style Office in Amsterdam

Using pallets as office furniture is about as peculiar as using containers as a home structure, but in this case, aesthetically speaking, the design by Most Architecture seems to work well.  Maybe it’s the mixture of clean walls with jenga-like stacks and bold lines.  Whatever it is, BrandBase, a company based out of Amsterdam, commissioned the temporary space and wanted it to be built with recycled materials.  The design incorporates 270 pallets all together.

Industrial Green Frame House in Verona

This container structure was on display earlier this month at Abitare il Tempo in Verona, Italy.  The architects, Studio Astori De Ponti Associati, used discarded containers to build a home that is meant to “propose an alternative starting point for reflection,” as opposed to “a definitive and absolute solution to the question of sustainability.”
