Over at autobloggreen, Dane writes ” Crude palm oil (CPO), used extensively as a biodiesel feedstock in South East Asia, has seen its popularity go through the roof over the last few years as Europe’s mandatory biodiesel targets have seen global demand boom. Despite the environmental concerns over large scale rainforest destruction to make way for ever more oil palm plantations, the price of CPO has been low enough that economic demand has not waned.
In the same time that crude oil prices have fallen 24 percent from last year’s record of $78.40 per barrel to $60 per barrel, CPO prices have risen by an even greater degree, a massive 35 percent. Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos

The Card Board Bench by A4ADesign, Honeycombed-board is made of recycled paper and water-based glue, and can itself be recycled. During the production phase, all unused pieces are collected and reintroduced into the manufacturing process. The honeycomb is one of the most compression-resistant structures in nature, and can support up to 400000 N/mq pressure. That is why such extraordinarily light materials can resist such strenuous conditions.
Leavitt Goodman Architects is showing the Vermicondo Worm Composter, which looks way better than it sounds, featuring a “back-painted acrylic worm composter unit, stainless steel base and hinges, roofing membrane, potting soil and planting.”.
According to Levitt, the “grab your wheatgrass, make a shake and go” crowd is not keen on cutesy. For that matter, they probably aren’t too keen on worms, but worms that come in their own chic highrises just might have a chance. Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos

Her name, however, wonâ€™t appear on any labels, and there certainly wonâ€™t be any â€œLauren Bushâ€? shop-in-shops at the local Macyâ€™s or Bloomingdales.
