They want it.

This video is why Toronto is awesome and I love it. There’s an awful lot of hating on Toronto that happens on the Internet (and I imagine also probably off it, or what the kids are calling ‘In Real Life,’) so, don’t worry, you don’t have to go to the trouble of disagreeing with me in the comments about the fact that Toronto Is Super Awesome. I feel like the war is won here: you can’t argue with a city that makes these kinds of ads. Nor should you. (Argue, that is. Nor should you argue with a city that makes these kinds of ads. We’re clear?)

Protip: The City of Toronto official version of this same video left out the ‘pretty blonde lady’ comment. Which is too bad, I think, but also so conscientious that it’s adorable. Oh Toronto, I could just pinch your cheeks.

Bottlecap Lamps

April 20, 2010

These bottlecap lamps come in a kit with some of the caps included; the owner can customize the pattern and colours by using different caps from 2L plastic bottles. I likey.

Thanks to a reader named L for the tip.

Here’s another neat idea I posted about a while back- clever people in Brazil lighting their homes using “skylight bulbs” made from plastic bottles filled with water.


EcoFont uses less ink than regular font.

February 12, 2009

This is a great idea: make a font with teeny holes in each letter, so you use 20% less ink to print! That means less waste from toner & supplies, and less ink in the landfill/recycling. Nicely done, Dutch People. It’s free to download, too.
