Green Thing

Remember Green Thing? We introduced you to him last year and while he may appear to be a hideous monster he is, in fact, not hideous at all.

The Green Thing is a not-for-profit organisation designed to promote sustainable living.  The Green Thing website is full of inspiring videos and stories from creative people around the world with excellent ideas for leading a greener life.

And Green Thing is two years old this week.  Happy Birthday Green Thing!

Glove Love

One of Green Thing’s recent brilliant ideas is Glove Love: a project designed to reduce waste and encourage re-use.  Green Thing describes Glove Love as “the stylish and sustainable union of the country’s single gloves.”

Green Thing are collecting lost and lonely gloves, washing them, finding them a new partner and then selling them.  When you buy a pair of Glove Love gloves, you can specify your size but the pair you receive will be a surprise.

Warm your hands and warm your heart, knowing that you have done a little bit to help the environment.  And made two lonely gloves very happy.
