The rePly chair project provides free downloadable plans for making your own chairs from scrap plywood.  The project was launched in 2006 in response to the growing problem of plywood waste generated by the construction industry.  The plans are available on the rePly website, where there is also a gallery for DIYers to submit pics of their completed chairs.

Look what the Mural Arts Program of Philadelphia unveiled on Earth Day – 10 recycling trucks decorated with bright, bold graphics inspired by the historic textiles collection of The Design Center at Philadelphia University.  The project coincided with the introduction of Philadelphia’s new single-stream recycling program, in which all recyclable materials can go into the same truck.

The Dublin Flea –  ‘a bizarre bazaar of vintage clothing, bric-a-brac and what nots in Dublin’s city centre’ – takes place on the last Sunday of every month, and their posters, which are specially designed just for the Flea, are available to buy for a measly 5 euros!  They are printed professionally on card and the money goes directly to the artist.
