What a great idea: The Uptown Transit Station in Minneapolis offers this first Bike Fixtation – a public bike workstation, with vending machine of bike parts, tubes, patch kits, as well as drinks, power bars, sunscreen, lights, etc. There is also air available and a stand to work on your bike. Chad DeBaker developed this awesome Bike Fixtation for the price of $7700 – not bad for a college campus or community library! Read more about it and view more image in the adventure journal or contact http://www.bikefixtation.com/ to get one for your library.
art from old books July 9, 2011
check out these beautiful art pieces created from discarded books by an Australian artist Kylie Stillman. Kylie carves trees out of old books — Kind of ironic that trees are used to create books that are now used to create images of tree within them! Check out more images on http://1800recycling.com/blog/ or check out Kylie Stillman’s website!
