"Tell the chef, the beer is on me."
A nonprofit group is taking a novel approach to helping the homeless in San Francisco with a new bus that allows them to take a shower.
The former public transit bus has been outfitted with two full private bathrooms and offers hot showers, clean toilets, shampoo, soap and towels free of charge. The founder of the nonprofit Lava Mae mobile shower bus (Doniece Sandoval) said she wanted to return a sense of dignity to those living on the streets.
THAT’S WHAT’S UP!!!
This Project is about the out of sight and out of mind legacy of the modern consumer. Taking the shoe as a prime example: What used to be a hand crafted item made to last and designed to be repairable, now spends an almost insignificant amount of time on the ground doing what it was made for.
As soon as the first component on a modern shoe fails, the pair is often discarded. The mass produced shoe is now essentially disposable. After you've finished with them they're just another (two) piece(s) of rubbish that are likely to still be around long after your own body has decomposed; we're all leaving behind ourselves a rubbish legacy. With the development of plastics came a utopian promise to change the world, and change the world it has, plastic has become so materially ingrained in our lives and environment that it's becoming increasingly indistinguishable and inseparable from nature. We took this as a starting point and set out to mine this plastic pollution, we collected rubbish from the west and the south coast of England and the banks of the river Thames. Following this we made a pair of shoes out of the rubbish that all our consumer goods are destined to become. A satirical critique of the legacy we consumers leave in our wake. Far from suggesting we all wear shoes made from rubbish, the project is a talking point around which to stage a conversation about the consumerism game we’re all caught up in.
Coca-Cola Invents 16 Crazy Caps to Turn Empty Bottles Into Useful Objects Ogilvy's '2nd Lives' campaign
Coca-cola's campaigns are uplifting recently, idk what happened but with the friendship twist bottle caps, the bottle cap payphone for the South Asian labor workers in Dubai, and THIS? Recycling plastic into more usefull things? It's pretty kickass.
Oh since this is in Vietnam, I bet it's gonna spread to all Southeast Asian countries in a matter of time. Can't wait till this happens in Indonesia.
"The Rekindle Candle is a candlestick holder which collects the melting wax to form a new candle. As the candle burns, melting wax drips from the candle and accumulates inside the transparent stem where a length of wick is centrally located. Once full, the new molded candle can be removed from the central section to start the process again."
As almost every known companies nowadays are having the initiative of saving the environment, Coca-Cola makes its own way of giving back to the environment. The Coca-Cola company now has its Give it Back rack for their product and is made from recycled Coke packaging. Aside from being made of recycled cardboard, the shelf itself is also recyclable. Retailers are asked to return the shelf to Coca-Cola once its useful life has ended and will be recycled. In this way, there will be less landfills, which is obviously favorable to the environment. The idea may not be new, but the fact that those who are doing it are increasing, it is something we should be happy about.

"Basically the price of a night on the town!"
"I'd love to help kickstart continued development! And 0 EUR/month really does make fiscal sense too... maybe I'll even get a shirt?" (there will be limited edition shirts for two and other goodies for each supporter as soon as we sold the 200)
