SHFT Sampler 3-4-11

  • Move Your Feet: LA footwear brand Generic Surplus teamed up with Danish fashion label Wood Wood to launch a spring shoe model designed specifically for biking. Made of weather-resistant treated canvas with an overlay toe cap, extra seams and a non-skid rubber for better grip. Nice look.

    Neon Inuit: A glowing igloo made of recycled water jugs makes a powerful statement on the effects of climate change in the Arctic. Check out the Bibigloo from French artist Bibi

    Ungreen the Capitol: In Washington, styrofoam is back, as the GOP- controlled Congress begins to phase out the Democrats' "Green the Capitol" program. Can you say "petty"?

    Earth Tunes: The eco enthusiasts at Patagonia have announced the launch of Patagonia Music, with exclusive tracks from artists like Blitzen Trapper, Phillip Glass, and Jack Johnson (obviously). You buy a song, they donate the money to one of many environmental groups. Easy as pie.  

    Toilet Paper: An struggling Indian paper maker has found success recycling elephant poop into paper. Ew, and also awesome.
