Spark Design Award Winners 2007


The first-ever Spark Awards were announced last month. It’s interesting to note that previously, we highlighted some of the award-winning products at AltCon; great green minds think alike :) Designer Yves Behar’s leaf light and Marmol Radziner’s prefab home were among the award-winning innovators recognized by Spark.

“Spark embraces design criteria for process, strategy, integration, aspiration, collaboration, sustainability and other essential 21st century concerns. They all add up to betterment: Better lives, better health, better water, peace and liberty. Great design is a critical tool to help us get there. We’re new and we have a new world view — please join us.”

Congratulations to all the winners; here’s to great, green design.

Organic Ice Cream

Breyer__s_Organic_Ice_Cream.jpgNew to my local frozen food department is a quart-sized, green package that embodies a likely favorite-to-be—Breyers All-Natural, Organic Ice Cream. Available in four simple flavors: Vanilla Bean, Chocolate, Coffee and Vanilla Fudge Swirl, this one is sure to be a summer staple.

Vanilla Bean, made with ingredients like organic skim milk, organic cream and organic vanilla extract, is a sweet, creamy treat that satisfies an indulgent craving without too much of a guilty conscience. ($4.99-$5.99)

Check your local recycling center for package recycle info.
