While staying at the Standard in LA this past few weeks,I noticed all the brilliant products surrounding me in the room. Simple and understated designs are the hardest to make happen and function well and this boxed water is the perfect example is making simple water seem cool as hell.
Since I have been very lazy with the posts due to 2011 school program planning, This nibble from Kenzie Kate has been sitting on my desktop waiting for release. This cool lacquered storage box filled with recycled note card is perfect to send out your holiday thanks yous. www.kenziekate.com

If your in NYC, stop by the Gerard Cantor roof top garden at the Met and view the Stern brothers new installation. It's bamboo structure is truly eye popping.

Stop by the Green Breeze in Birmingham this weekend and check out all the eco-goods. AShirtBag will be on the corner of Merrill and Old Woodward between 12-6pm with amazing bags stuffed with goodies from Tigi, Randys Granola and more all benefiting Community House and AShirtBag.
DKNY Pure has a new earth friendly soft scent ,with a cool raindrop shaped bottle and the package that it comes in, both inside and out is recyclable. Its nice to see that product designers in the cosmetics industry are developing new ways to package stuff without causing tons of waste.
From old hot air balloons to unused army uniforms, Christopher Raeburns eco-friendly line of clothing sure hits the spot for fall. As Margiela has done for years, Raeburn takes found unused clothing items and makes coats and jackets that seam far more wearable than the Maison and quite a bit cheaper. www.christopherraeburn.com

We had a contest at AShirtBag to see what classroom out of 5 different schools and over 500 children could grow the largest/tallest amount of trees while learning the importance of what trees do for our environment. Well Logan Elementary won and had had a pizza party and prizes and all sorts of fun. Congrats Diane Sampson for making this happen with your kids.
You Are The Bomb.....

Its seems that the options for cool and sustainable clothing for men are limited . Im over the American Apparel stuff and how much Patagonia can you own. A reader sent over some info about this collection of super yummy earth friendly clothing . The hemp jackets, bamboos socks and organic cotton 3-d print t-sht is kicking my rump. The tee reminders me of a Comme Des Garcons one I had and worn to bit years ago and the hemp jacket is perfect for the cool east coast nights on the beach Ill be taking this summer.Check this stuff out . www.rapanuiclothing.com
