A couch that converts into an 8 seater dining table

A group of 40 University of New South Wales (UNSW) industrial design students have developed some futuristic home designs, including some novel space-saving furniture — like a light weight two-seater couch which converts into an eight-seater dining table for casual sit-downs with friends. The ‘Otto Lounge’ has four different formations: a compact two person lounge; a couch plus leg rest; couch plus coffee table; and an eight-seater dining table. http://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/2017/11/20/these-design-students-inventions-for-tiny-apartments-are-genius_a_23280085/?

Improve Your Wardrobe (and Eco Footprint) With Organic Cotton Clothing

Unless it is certified organic, conventional cotton may not be as natural as you think. Over 99% of the cotton grown today is either genetically modified or grown with heavy applications of pesticides, or both. The problems with clothing production don’t stop in the field. During the conversion of conventional cotton into clothing, numerous toxic chemicals are added at each stage— silicone waxes, harsh petroleum scours, softeners, heavy metals, flame and soil retardants, ammonia, and formaldehyde— to name just a few. iKotton products are designed for sensitive skin.  They use only organically certified cotton, woven and dyed with low-impact non-toxic chemicals. https://www.ikotton.com/

A simple new way to check healthy plant growth

A team of agricultural scientists working with the CSIRO has invented a digital device called the Chameleon, which offers a simple new way to measure how moist the soil is under crops. It only costs a few dollars to manufacture, making it a truly viable solution for farming communities around the world. Quite often the only way of currently knowing if crops are getting enough, or too much, water is to wait until the plant shows physical signs of stress. https://blog.csiro.au/good-karma-for-water-saving-chameleon/

A clever way to encourage shopper patience

FD805A3F-AEFF-43EF-A386-DD59B6D5CA0C

This time of the year is very busy and it’s easy to be impatient, particularly when grocery shopping. The “L” sign in front of this young cashier at Harris Farm Markets Randwick is a clever way to encourage patience. If you choose her queue, as I did, your expectations are lower. It was a pleasant surprise when she exceeded expectations. I told her the sign reminded me of a joke my son made that I should put an “L” plate on my car so drivers behind me would not become impatient with my slow driving!
