The Eco Home,by Diseno ,Earle in Spain takes first prize. The square stone blocks along the pool, the grass path to the second level jacuzzi, the warm flow of water that streams down the water fall into the main pool to regulate the temperature are all reminiscent of a utopia version of outdoor hot springs in California. The whole house is amazing and Eco friendly. Below is the exterior of this gorgeous home.Nature has so many dynamic ways of expressing itself.

This is madness and unnessisary. The chair is almost $1500 and the bench $5000 with tax. Yeah! OK! Wait! Dont get me wrong I love the chair and bench (and the artist who crafted this ultra modern piece, it truley is beautiful) and if money, waste of tree, and comfort were not an issue, fine chop(i mean shop) away.

It is a bird, it is a plane, it is a house made out of upcycling dispensed jet parts.
Upcycling is the process of converting useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value.
Recycling involves processing used materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from landfilling) by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to virgin production.
I try to upcycle as much as I can. Recyling is good and upcycling is better.
Happy Upcycling Everyone!
