Tin Can Robot

Monday, August 9th, 2010

We were strolling the grounds of the Real Goods Solar Living Institute located in Hopland, CA this afternoon and eventually wandered into the gift shop.  There are loads of amazing things and among them – a working tin can robot!

It’s best to plan a visit and tour the gift shop, but if not – you can always pick it up here

We had such a good time that I am including a link to yelp.com so you can read what other visitors had to say!

Plarn Grocery Bag

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

Plarn – Have you heard of this stuff?

Evidently last night while I was sleeping there was a plarn revolution.  Yesterday I’d never even heard the word, and today it seems it’s EVERYWHERE!

Plarn (plastic yarn) is made from plastic grocery bags cut into strips then crocheted to create virtually anything – In this case we’re using a grocery bag to create … a grocery bag. 

Check out this link for a tutorial on how to create your own ecofriendly shopping bags.

DYK: It takes 1000 years for a plastic bag to decompose in a landfill?
