GravityLight: i don’t know about its resource-efficiency, but this lamp makes a lot of sense: replacing the battery by using gravity’s potential energy makes this a much more eco-friendly product and presumably increases its life-span due to less ‘high-tech’ parts that need specialized maintenance.

no wonder they already raised three times the amount (as of dec 17) they were looking for – awesome project!

awesome, the in.gredients project (“the first zero-waste, package-free grocery store in the US.”) is crowdfunded! pretty nice blog as well! could we also try this in berlin?

[EDIT: i was informed that there is a similar store ‘unpackaged’ in london. we still have a long way to go here in germany]
