Starting in October 2012, Woolly Pocket will have a new Living Wall Planter available for sale from $26.99, according to the LA Times. The product isn’t soft like the standard Wally made with 100% recycled PET. It’s made with hard recycled plastic not to include BPA and equipped with a self-watering tank. The modular planter may be installed inside or outside and will be available in white, green, brown, gray, black, orange, and yellow.
There’s been a lot of talk about cotton insulation, but I’ve seen it used in countless projects. It’s probably worth noting that Bonded Logic’s recycled-content product hit the mainstream with a roll-out of UltraTouch Denim Insulation to 165 Lowe’s stores this month. The product is made with 80% post-consumer recycled natural fibers and doesn’t have added formaldehyde, VOCs, or chemical irritants, according to Bonded Logic.
This year Sherwin Williams introduced ColorCast EcoToner, which is a new tinting system that won’t add VOCs to paints. The new colorants “maintain the paint’s full body after tinting, delivering thick, rich coats for maximum performance,” according to a company press release. The ColorCast EcoToner system is available for any hue in the Sherwin Williams color palette (as well as custom color matches, too). ColorCast EcoToner colorants are now used for Emerald paints and all other Sherwin Williams latex and water-based coatings as of July 1, 2012. Perhaps you’ve already used paints with this system — thoughts?
