Sayaka Ganz says she was inspired by Japanese Shinto beliefs that all objects have spirits and those that are thrown out “weep at night inside the trash bin.” With this vivid image in her mind, she began collecting discarded materials — kitchen utensils, sunglasses, appliances, toys, etc. — and upcycling them into works of art.

THIS AWESOME URN WILL TURN YOU INTO A TREE AFTER YOU DIE
BigThink:

You don’t find many designers working in the funeral business thinking about more creative ways for you to leave this world (and maybe they should be). However, Spanish designer Martin Azua has combined the romantic notion of life after death with an eco solution to the dirty business of the actual, you know, transition.
His Bios Urn is a biodegradable urn made from coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose and inside it contains the seed of a tree. Once your remains have been placed into the urn, it can be planted and then the seed germinates and begins to grow. You even have the choice to pick the type of plant you would like to become, depending on what kind of planting space you prefer.

DIY paper plate baskets
Even though August is coming to an end, there are still a few summer nights left for outdoor entertaining. And this is such a cute way to serve up fresh berries or even individually-sized salads or deserts. And what’s best? Once your party is over, it’s an easy clean-up, recycle or compost. Your choice.
