If I see it around, that’s definetly my new cigarette (hopefully is good too;)

Greenbutts it’s an all-natural cigarette with additive and chemical-free tobacco (which gotta be better for the smokers too, right?). Also, the filters are biodegradable with seeds that may be collected in planters and grow grass, flower, fruit, herb, or even trees.

Green deliveries is not exactly a new thing anymore – sandwiches, markets now can be deliveried by bike, which is great. But Soupcycle comes also with a nice proposition to you: became a soupetarian! With 3 types of soup – vegan, veggie and meaty – you can choose their next’s week soup, some sides (bread, salads…) and order it.

The cool thing is that all the process is really green: SoupCycle buys  the organic vegetables from local farmers, make the soup, load it onto a bicycle and deliver it to you.

Negative point: they only cover Portland, Oregon area. Maybe it’s a good business idea for the rest of the world =)

Used Oil becames Candles

In Tokyo, the brand Filt avoids polution by re-using cooking oil to make local candles. They call themselves as ultra-local, actually. The reason is that their raw material comes from Chubby caferia that’s happy to hand over its used cooking oil to Filt, which carefully filters the oil to remove odors and sediment. After adding pigments and a vanilla scent, the filtered oil is poured into glass jars that the company collects from local recycling bins.

Candle’s prices are between JPY 2,000–3,600 (USD 20–36) and it’s easy to find and buy in boutiques and at Chubby, which also uses the candles on its own tables.
