…It’s Website Wednesday: The Uniform Project?

Uniform Project

The Uniform Project is a campaign to raise money for the Akanksha Foundation (a grassroots movement that is revolutionizing education in India) in which Sheena Matheiken will wear one dress for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion.

Though she’s wearing one dress, there are seven identical copies of it so that she can have a clean one each day of the week, and each day, Sheena will reinvent the dress with layers, accessories and all kinds of accouterments, the majority of which will be vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Scanwiches?


If you think that “scans of sandwiches for education and delight” doesn’t sound like a deliciously good time, then you obviously haven’t been to Scanwiches.

The website itself is run by Jon Chonko, a thehappycorp global designer, and to make the images, he takes sandwiches from the lunch shops around NYC, cuts them in half, scans the results, and then adds the image along with a written description of the ingredients to the Tumblr account.

If you’re getting ready to visit the site, I have one warning for you: Don’t visit the site on an empty stomach, because monitors don’t like to be licked.


…You don’t have to be homeless to look like you are?

Le Clochard Quilt Cover

Always dreamed of living on the streets, but can’t stand the cold?

Then check out SZN’s Le Clochard Quilt Cover, a quilt cover and pillowcase set that looks like it’s made from taped together cardboard boxes.

In addition, “The income is used to fund housing projects which prioritize supporting young people in finding work or continuing their education.” so your purchase price goes to a good cause.

…It’s TGI Friday: Energyville?


Energyville is Chevron’s SimCity clone that it hopes to use to educate consumers about the different ways that different forms of energy affect us.

Taking into account economic, environmental, and security issues, you must build a city to the best of your ability and see how your choices affect the people as time goes on.

It’s definitely an interesting concept, and ought to be good for a few hours of fun as you lean a bit about the environment, so I’m going to call it a win-win.
