Recycling T-Shirts

We are about t-shirts here, as well as other things, and since it’s Earth Day and one of the hot topics is recycling, why not talk t-shirt recycling? Today’s as good a time as any to pass on some cool links courtesy of Crafty Chica Kathy Cano Murillo, who wrote about this transformation craft […]

Earth Day Fuel School

A few months ago I was walking around Venice and came across some people painting a a ratty old bus. I stopped to talk with them a bit and they told me they were part of an LA-based initiative to spread the word about vegetable-based diesel fuel. I had not known before then that […]

Zen and the Art of Rabbits

According to the site, The Essence of Rabbit: No other living creature features as heavily in contemporary character design and art as the humble hare. But what exactly […]

Earth Day Cometh

Earth Day is April 22, and we’ll be sharing some favorite environmental finds. For those blatant types, smacking a bumper sticker on your hybrid (or erstwhile other) verhicle does the trick to inform the world of your certifiable status where the environment is concerned. For others an only slightly more demure expression works well […]

Pyrite or April Fools Gold?

We’ve been finding, erm, “unearthing” some more silly tees… They’re sometimes silly over at UnEarthedTees and since it’s April Fools Day that makes it just right to one of their silly shirts. It’s in the form of a handy diagram to help rock hounds learn the difference between pyrite and fools gold 😉 It’s […]
