Brighter Planet's 350 Challenge
30 April 10
bunch:

Betacup is a contest that promises $10,000 to the best design to help reduce the 58 billion paper coffee cups thrown out each year. I’ve seen a few great entries, but I think Manueldr’s Coffee  Cup, pictured above, is my favorite.
It’s made from coffee grounds, pressed into a vessel by a special  machine on the spot. Soy wax, a biodegradable material, would hold it  together and provide a waterproof seal. Afterwards, the cup  biodegrades quickly and can be added to a compost pile. via Core77

House is Heated By Compost | inhabitat.com

"Tentatively named ‘Comploo,’ Bakoko’s small structure is composed of a series of large, specially shaped compost hoppers arranged in a ring to form an enclosure. To feed the composter, garden waste, food scraps or other compost materials can be dropped in through a door at the top of each bin. A system of sealed ducts runs through each of the bins, and as the air circulates within the walls, the decaying compost warms it. This heated air is in turn emitted through a central vent that releases into the structure’s interior. Occupants can comfortably sit along a circular bench surrounding the heat source, and enjoy the ambient natural light permeating through the transparent dome roof above."

Ekokook: The Kitchen of the Future That Produces, Prepares and Disposes (from Treehugger)


"Kitchens today are designed around bringing stuff in from the store and throwing out what we don’t eat. The Ekokook from Faltazi Lab, which ‘turns everyday waste into a new reusable source of energy, where each drop of water that fell on the roof or came from a tap should be used to the maximum instead of going straight down the drain.’”

the CompostAll by Frog Design works just like a normal garbage disposal except that instead of sending the blended material down the drain, it stores it in a removable container which you can dump into your compost.
