There’s something really captivating about designer Angela Johnson‘s sense of style. Self-described as “punk couture,” “vintage inspired” and “kitschy ready-to-wear,” Angela’s gowns exude feminity “but with a dark side.” So if you tend to gravitate towards the adventurous style of Gwen Stefani over the classic appeal of Nicole Kidman, look no further than these bold-n-beautiful gowns refashioned from vintage fabrics.Â Images after the link Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos

This open plan design comes from Danish design firmÂ 3xn. Looks like you can buy the plans to build this house on your lot using traditional stick building technology. No one seems to know much about the house, since the site is not in English at this point. We will just log this one as an interesting design, which could be green if you wanted to build it that way.

Now if you are a guy or a Monkey like myself, you start to feel a little left out of the whole G Fashion movement.Â It just seems all the designers are focused on women and even the big brands don’t have much to offer in the organic for men department.Â So when I saw that Timberland was selling Organic Jeans for men, I had to tell someone, so I am telling you.Â Now, I am not a huge fan of Timerland or anything, I guess they are fine, but the organic part is very rare and these are also on sale for only $44.99, sounds like a steal.Â I do question how organic they are, because after some research I found another Timberland Jean with only 6% organic cotton and 94% chemical cotton. Hmm. Maybe I should call Macy’s and see how much is Organic.

Okay this is great, George Clooney is going to drive yet another all electric car. We and other sites, like Ecorazzi, where I saw this post, informed you that he already has 2 electric cars that we know of. He was the first person to be named to own the new sexy Telsa Roadster, which we featured on G Living Live at the L.A. Auto show. George is Really Going all G.
The modern candle by Tayo design studio. It’s a 1 watt LED battery powered light, which comes with 4 color filters. Price $59. First lets point out the obvious, they are pretty damn cool. I could see my house or office glowing in their light and be pretty happy. They have a clean sexy look to them, which completely matches the G lifestyle. Now if they would build in a Piezo panel to make them self charging, or at least a rechargeable battery built in, I would like them even more. Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos
(via fabulouslygreen) I’ve fallen hook, line and sinker for these flirty, fashion-forward tops by Supayana. Yana Gorbulsky is the designer phenom behind this self-proclaimed line of vintage-modern streetwear. A Brooklynite by way of Moscow, Yana learned to sew trendy outfits for her dolls and stuffed animals as a little girl in Russia. She moved on to fashioning pieces for herself, then selling limited editions on eBay every Tuesday (catch her weekly auctions here!), to selling nationally in celeb-favorites like NY-based Girl Shop boutique or online eco-boutique Sodafine.

First thing that caught my eye was the beuatiful rich color finishes on these bowls.Â Yes they are bamboo, but no they are not crunchy.Â They would fit in any highend Mahattan Loft.Â The second and way more important paor to of the ekobo story is that they have this amazing openess about the process of design and production.Â They work with artisans from villages who work locally using old world trade crafts to produce amazingly modern products.
Check out their video on their site, showing the entire process, from cutting down the bamboo too, making the bowls. ekobo.org
The Hundred-Year Lie is a book by former Wall Street Journal investigative journalist, Randall Fitzgerald. I came across this book and had to share about it. After I read it I will post a review of the book. What I like about the idea of this book is that it discusses the onslaught and history of the chemical revolution and what it is doing to the health of people, animals and the earth, from the larger time-span perspective.
“Ouch” might be the word BMW is looking for after this strongly-worded analysis of the Hydrogen 7 Series.
(via Spiegel Online)
The Munich-based company is promising “sustainable mobility and sheer joy of driving,” citing the car’s 260 horsepower, 12-cylinder engine. The Hydrogen 7’s standard combustion engine has been adapted to run on both liquid hydrogen and regular gasoline as well — and tons of it. The company says the car will consume an average of 13.9 liters (3.7 gallons) per 100 kilometers (roughly 17 miles per gallon) using regular gasoline and a whopping 50 liters to drive the same distance when fueled by hydrogen.
