I have looked in the original post and comments and cannot find information on the green chair displayed in the top photo, I love it! Does anyone know anything about it?? Thanks!

I have a little red dustpan and brush for daily use, I guess that's old fashioned, but it's less wasteful.

It seems really un-sustainable to clean everyday with a mop or a microfiber (throw away swiffers too, obviously) that have to be washed. I'm all for cleanliness, but I thought the goal was to waste/use less......

And, like the photo, if you air-dry your clothes, you save energy and extend the life of the fabrics.......

I agree with all the SATC naysayers, enough already, but I must admit, an engagement closet is definitely better than a conflict diamond (assuming it was sustainably done)!

Second that Doogie, a lot of the prices were crazy, mainly for the 'flea market' items, e.g. the furniture. I did, however, encounter a few displays (e.g. Merchant Army and Saipua) that were lovely, it was inspiring to see their design sense.

Oh, and I really I hope I'm wrong about this.....

I guess they can't admit they're moving, because then they would lose their rent stabilized original apartment, which they said they would never let go. If this is true, I think it's really selfish (and thought so when the intention was originally posted) to hold on to a rent stabilized place that is obviously not necessary.

I think the new place is great and hope that you can live happily there, but hope you realize there are people that need a rent stabilized flat to live in, not just as a luxury extra.

Sorry, but that's the way it is, you have to do the work, the grueling work of pounding the pavement, looking at disgusting places, dealing with useless brokers who want to rent you a dump for tons of money, BUT then at the end of all this exhausting discouraging work, you find your lovely Manhattan gem. It happened to me, right at the point when I wanted to give up. It's like a test, so just stay hopeful through everything, that is, if you really want it!

Great design and idea (and as a swimmer, I LOVE it!), but how can this be in the same league as the Lifestraw? Of course this is less relevant than a better way to make water potable. Now that's a great design with a tremendous impact!

The carpet is by Orla as well, it's a signature design.

I thought the point of the bags was to attract the attention of people who never think about sustainability at all. I see that happening, I'm not sure how long it will last, but I'm all for anything that can reel in these people and their careless consumption.....

The kitchen could use more work: The area to the left of the oven looks hodge-podge, spend some time making that area look as cohesive as the areas depicted in the other photos. Put your appliance on a wall-mounted shelf and push the cabinet to the wall maybe....I'm surprised you put this photo in your submission.

I'm amazed to see an entry that possesses absolutely no originality. Sorry but, this competition should be about design rather than catalog shopping.....
