Finger pointing: Recycled fluorescent tubes
The worst thing about most green blogs is the way they all point at each other. Can't we generate some original content? Well, SF Green Labs is just starting out, so there will be a little pointing. All I can promise is that we'll be really honest about it. Thus, here's the first "finger pointing" post. From Inhabitat, this fantastic lamp made (by Canadians!) of those so-hard-to-recycle fluorescent tubes.
The original is designed and produced by Castor Canadensis (and is for sale on their website). In our own twist, this is a super-easy DIY, especially if you work in an old-school office building with a steady supply of spent tubes. Just ask the building maintenance guy or gal to hook you up.
