    "Cool Green Stuff" by Dave Evans

    This book is just fascinating. It is filled with, well, cool green stuff. Things I'd never have imagined have been repurposed into other things. Comes complete with the websites of the items, so you can look up the sites. It would be a terrific little gift book, is fun for browsing. You'll be thinking "Why didn't I think of that?" Also, "How did they think of that?" Just fun as a very small coffee table book. It's subtitle is "A Guide to Finding Great Recycled, Sustainable, Renewable Objects You Will Love". Lots of unnecessary stuff, but it's all fun. One of the most creative books I've seen in quite awhile.

    Cool is the word

    This book is absolutely amazing. Not your usual recycled sttuff but really interesting and inspiring products that you can buy. Its got chandeliers made out of party poppers from the millennium celebrations, tables made out of real coffee grounds, shoes made out of old seat belts and brooches made out of old records. I love it.
