From Powerful Sustainable Superjets to Coffee Cup Gardens

 - Aug 31, 2014
The top August 2014 eco ideas reflect the world's growing ability to leverage the world's natural resources and existing products to create something new. This month saw a variety of artists drawing inspiration from various recycled goods. From discarded bicycle parts to sustainable wood and plots of sand, unusual -- yet environmentally friendly -- mediums are being used to create art.

Brands are also creating products that enable consumers to take charge of their own contributions to the environment. Items like garden starter kits from 'Seed Pantry' allows consumers to grow crops and food on abandoned lots. The Envirobank is a public machine in Sydney that gives away movie and bus tickets in exchange for trash and discarded plastic.
