35 Foamy Features

From Styrofoam Packed Seniors to Volcanic Foam Chairs

— December 3, 2009 — Art & Design
Be it the main component of your temporary bed, or the substance floating on top of your coffee, it is funny how something as simple as foam is such a prominent part of our world.

That being said, I have put together these 35 foamy features which highlight the lighter side of our world. Check them all out, from Styrofoam packed seniors to volcanic foam chairs.

Implications - Since the rise of Global Warming, many people have started to highly respond to reused, recycled and upcycled products. Since many people do not know how to create upcycled products themselves, it is up to businesses to create them and help to save the planet along with eager, green-minded consumers.
