My Shenanigans

That moment when you consciously make the decision to buy a certain type and colour of dresser because Bryan Lee O’Malley made it so.

hahaha…

The dresser in Seconds was inspired by a green dresser that was in one of my toronto apartments. It was there when I moved in, and I left it when I moved out. I used it and wondered what its story was.

Did you know that you can make houses out of plastic bottles? By filling them with sand, and molding them together with mud or cement, the walls created are actually bullet proof, fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 degrees in the summer time.
And it’s not like there is any shortage on used plastic bottles out there. Here are some statistics from treehugger.com:
“The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day which is 47.3 Billion plastic bottles per year. About 80% of those plastic bottles end up in a landfill!”
To build a two bedroom, 1200 square foot home, it takes about 14,000 bottles.
The United States throws away enough plastic bottles to build 9257 of these 2 bedroom houses per day! That’s just over 3.35 million homes, the same number of homeless people in America.

actually bullet proof

This reminds me of earth ships.

That is so fuckin’ awesome!

HEY DON’T STOP THERE! 
actually, a lot of other countries actually use these plastic waterbottles and fill them up with non-recyclable plastic waste and then add sand and turn them into bricks as a way of getting rid of waste!
Then you have innovation and a use for non-recyclable, soft plastic waste.
I’m actually working on a project at the teaching garden that i work at to utilize three schools and use their waste and have them help build an earth bench for the garden :)

Seconds

   

Seconds by Bryan Lee O’Malley may seem as though it is a colorful children’s book when in fact it is much more than the average graphic novel. In fact Seconds is one of a few in a dying breed of graphic novels that make the reader ponder their existence as they read the story of Kate (Main Character) unfold.
