Recycled plastic soda bottles are now showing up in everything from toothbrushes to park benches to jackets and now they are even being molded into the 2009 Platinum B9 (b9 = pronounced “benign”) wetsuit by Billabong. These suits claim to be as good for your body as they are for the environment. Check out the video from youtube.
Ever need an excuse to go surfing? Well on June 2oth you finally have one. International surfing day created by Surfing Magazine, this unofficial, official surfers holiday gives us to promote and celebrate the sport while bringing awareness to the state of our oceans and beaches.
The goal is simple, take the day, or at least part of the day to go down to your favorite surf spot to catch a wave or two, or watch your your favorite agro local grom snake you, whatever it takes. While your at it take some time to clean up your local beach. Surfrider Foundation will be organizing a hand full of official beach cleanups, but that shouldnâ€™t stop you from fixing up your own stretch of sand.

Did you ever wonder what to do with all your old dolls from your childhood. Well a post at INHABITAT migth plant a seed of what comes next. “Combine your collection of Barbies and your love for foosball all in one strange game table! Using Barbies as the players, French designer Chloe Ruchon has created the BarbieFoot, a completely operable Foosball table. It recently debuted at the DMY Youngsters Exhibition in Berlin, with the intention of presenting a traditionally masculine toy in a feminine way. Weâ€™re not sure if the Barbies are used or not, but think that the Ruchonâ€™s table and the other Barbie creations are inspiration enough to create your own upcycled toys and fashions.”
