By • Feb 28th, 2014 • Category: Latest Posts, Photography

A couple of Chinese newlyweds decided to take their wedding photos in a dark and striking direction to protest their country’s out-of-control pollution. The two lovebirds took their wedding photos wearing gas masks to shield themselves from Beijing’s clouds of toxic smog. Beijing has never been known as an especially clean city, but the toxic industrial clouds hovering over the city in the past few months have forced the government to impose limits on factories and power plants in the Beijing area

Located in the Brazilian city of Porto Alegre, this gorgeous tree-lined street is said to be the most beautiful street in the world. Planted 70 years ago by German employees in a former brewery site, one hundred tipuana trees stretch approximately 500 meters. In 2005, some of the trees were almost cut down to make a room for a shopping mall, however, local residents forced the mayor José Fogaça to sign a decree making the street of Rua Gonçalo de Carvalho “historical, cultural and environmental heritage of the city.”

For those of us who are head over heals in love, here’s a new destination to consider. The Tunnel of Love, located in Ukraine, used to be just another train rail section, but eventually turned into one of the most romantic spots on Earth. As trees were left to grow freely around the rails, the passing train was the only thing shaping its way through. Eventually, by crossing the Kleven village forest back and forth three times a day, the train shaped a closed tunnel according to it’s size.

Jody Xiong from DDB China created a very impressive outside installation on the the pedestrian crossings in China in order to demonstrate how choosing walking over driving actually helps the environment. They put massive white canvases with drawings of bare trees on the pedestrian crossings in 15 different cities of China.

Every time a person crossed the street, the paint got on his/her shoes turning their footsteps into leaves.

If you don’t have electricity or live in a home with no windows, it’s going to be dark inside, even during a sunny day. Luckily, a bottled liter of water with some bleach can provide approximately 55-60 watts of light from the sun. This simple idea has helped many dwellers in the light-deprived slums of the Philippines. “A Liter of Light” is a sustainable lighting project by Illac Diaz which aims to bring the eco-friendly Solar Bottle Light to disprivileged communities worldwide.

Christmas Tree Made of 32,000 Recycled Bottles

By • Dec 21st, 2011 • Category: Art, Latest Posts

About a week ago Design You Trust wrote about an amazing 13 meters tall Christmas tree “made of 40 thousands ‘SPRITE’ plastic bottles” in Kaunas, Lithuania. However, according to the original sources like Delfi and Lrytas, there are “only” 32,000 recycled plastic bottles, but the tree will have 40,000 Christmas lights. That’s why you should never trust anyone, even if they have a word “trust” in their name. Nevertheless, the Christmas tree looks really great, and it’s especially beautiful at night when it’s lit from the inside and the green bottles start to sparkle.

So, what do you choose?
