Saw some Boonies at the SCS today! They had a genius idea, #smellresponsibly , and turned it into reality! Check out @brewcandleco right now. You can buy an awesome candle and it comes poured in a pint glass that you can actually use later! Hello #recycling here I come. Thank you @ollerifyahearme for a great conversation and much luck to you in all of your endeavors!
Are you a DIY junkie?
Do you spend hours on Pinterest? Is your favourite show Flea Market Flip?
Have you always dreamed of building something but didn’t know how, then this is for you!
As part of @aabqatar's internal sustainable program and green initiative to reduce, reuse and recycle they have teamed up with @allandaboutqa to give the public a once in a lifetime opportunity to build something out of their excess pallets. The experience was FREE and PRICELESS!
The kind and helpful staff of Abdullah Abdulghani & Bros Co. are on hand to assist, guide and help you as you build.
The next event is planned for January 2018. All Tools, safety wear (gloves, safety glasses, dust masks) and pallets are provided by @aabqatar.
Go prepared with fun friends, appropriate clothing, lunch (drinks and fruit are provided), a realistic plan of your dream piece of furniture and be prepared to have a blast!
Take along any accessory that you would want to incorporate into your design (glass top, table legs, flower pots or pretty handles). Cutters, tools, paint (a limited variety and colours), varnish and a large range of pallets are provided. Use of the cutting machines are strictly done by @aabqatar's trained personnel.
No prior knowledge of how to use tools or building furniture is required. If you have your own tools it is advised to carry them as there are many teams and one might need to wait for tools as they are shared.
Transport for the finished piece is not included, so be realistic on your size if you do not want to pay to hire a furniture mover on the day (I hired a furniture mover who was very good: Billa +97450305943). Prizes were awarded to the top teams.
Once in a lifetime, professionally organised experiences which are FREE come very rarely so dont delay to sign up when they happen!

I make every effort to ensure the accuracy of my information. However, I would recommend that you always call ahead and confirm details.
Our #householdwaste now includes four bins inside the house to allow for changes to the @morelandcouncil recycling rules. These four bins plus a #compost bin for food scraps means that we are taking a very proactive approach to recycling in our house. Such a shame that #visy doesn’t find it “profitable” to look after our soft plastic waste any more. I wonder will our waste rates reduce now that the council and their partners are doing less work, while we do more? #rubbishrubbishrecycle#reducewaste#saynotoplastic#recycling#reusereducerecycle
"The Invisibles: Where Do They Come From?"
🔊🔊🔊 Have you ever paused to think about what goes into our tap/drinking water? If microplastics can reach the stomachs of the organisms in the deepest ocean trenches on earth, dont be surprised that they've made it's way into every recesses of our bodies. This ground breaking research was brought to my attention by Marine and Wildlife Conservationist, Environmentalist, Traveller, Artist and Dear Friend, Nadezhda Alexander @nadezhdaalexander
This post courtesy of New York based News and Media Company, Orb Media @orbmedia - Microscopic plastic fibers are flowing out of taps from New York to New Delhi, according to exclusive research by Orb and a researcher at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. From the halls of the U.S. Capitol to the shores of Lake Victoria in Uganda, women, children, men, and babies are consuming plastic with every glass of water. 🔴 View our full report at orbmedia.org. 🔴 Link in @orbmedia bio. #OrbPlastics#microplastics#OurOceans#SDGs#GlobalGoals#Water#Recycling#CircularEconomy#Plastic#BeatTheBead#PlasticAge#CleanWater#Uganda#USA#NewYork#NewDelhi#PublicHealth#Health#Conservation#Education#Research#OceanOptimism#OneOceanGlobal 🌎 @oneoceanglobal @oneoceandiving @nadezhdaalexander @david_attenborough @faunafloraint @balubluefoundation @theellenshow @oprah @charlizeafrica @oceana @greenpeaceap @lamaveproject @savephseas @maggieq @lonelywhale @morgan_freeman_official @jaydenicole @wwf
It was great to have been a part of the Exposure Exhibition 2017 at the College of Creative Arts this year. Well done to all the undergraduate and postgrad students who made the event an outstanding display of top quality design work.
