We all know we should lessen our smaller carbon footprint, but how can you realistically do this when 80% of things sold in supermarkets are wrapped in toxic packaging? In Europe and America we produce over a 1kg of trash every day – 1kg! Enter Original Unverpackt. A grocery store that doesn’t selling anything in a disposable boxes, bags, or other container. Instead the brainchild of Sara Wolf and Milena Glimbovski, two Germany-based social impact innovators, utilizes bulk bins, attractively displaying produce and encouraging consumers to bring reusable containers to the store. We want consumers to have a choice about how much food they buy, as well as how much waste it creates. Wolf and Glimbovski want to show the grocery conglomerates that there’s a more eco-friendly way to sell food. A change to zero-waste supermarkets is obviously needed and completely possible.
The Aatrial House close to Opole (Poland) is hands down one of my favourite minimalist houses! It sits near a forest and in order to not disturb the beauty of nature for the inhabitants, the architects came up with something I’ve never seen so elegantly before. To preserve the unobstrucuted views into nature, the house features a lowered driveway leading inside to the ground floor level, from underneath the building, As a result, the building opens up onto all sides with its terraces in an unrestricted manner. The only way to get into the garden is through the atrium and the house. You end up with the reverse of an atrial building. The aatrial house is closed to the inside and opened to the surroundings. The interior features large windows and extensive use of glass throughout!
