Here are two scrubbies I crocheted using the plastic produce nets that lettuce and other veggies come in from your grocery store. Most of my produce nets are green but I have been given red, yellow, and orange colored ones from friends.

    Where do electronics go when they die? Most devices are laid to eternal rest in landfills. But what if they just dissolved away, or broke down to their molecular components so that the material could be recycled? Researchers have developed heat-triggered self-destructing electronic devices, a step toward greatly reducing electronic waste and boosting sustainability in device manufacturing. They also developed a radio-controlled trigger that could remotely activate self-destruction on demand.

More than 18% of the bluefin, albacore, and swordfish studied in the Mediterranean Sea had plastic in their stomach contents, either from direct consumption or through smaller fish they had consumed.  These plastics, most of which are from land based litter, persist in the water and attract surrounding toxins, such as phthalates, BPA, flame retardants, and other chemicals.

So with that in mind, I thought I’d crochet a few dishcloths and potholders. I used my US flag dishcloth pattern to crochet the potholder and matching cloth.

Below is the finished off flag kitchen set. The potholder and…

    Japanese Knot Bags are very handy and feature two handles. One handle is shorter than the other so you can pull the longer handle through the shorter as a quick and unique closure for the bag. I thought a Japanese Knot would be a cool idea for a recycled tote bag. I used mainly recycled grey Walmart plastic bags to crochet the tote bag with 4 blue plastic bags for the stripe. It took about 50 plastic bags cut 1 inch wide and made into plarn (plastic bag yarn) to crochet my Japanese knot tote bag. I loved how the blue really helped set off the bag to give it a nice look to an otherwise boring…

    These paintings belong to a series of ‘bottles’ I painted while I was still living in Colombia, the technique is oil on Fabriano paper. I left the border untouched in the paper and painted inside, I think it leaves a nice ‘halo effect’. The message I would like to convey with this series is about recycling and re-using, the amount of plastic and rubbish that ends up in the ocean and in land fills is more than what the planet can take.

However, it is not that simple when dealing with a large-scale production of packaged liquids. How your bottle design is perceived changes with time, and varying trends inevitably influence what is important to consumers. Let’s take a look at which trends are dominating the industry right now, and how you as a beverage manufacturer can use them as inspiration and guidelines to make your product a success.
