Barcelona, a photo a day

Go green!


We decided to stay home today, as I’m not quite back to normal yet (wish there was a reset button…). So, this is from my archives.
Nice bags, all made from recycled stuff, old plastic. This was a temporary structure, set up at the Maremagnum shopping center. Demano also have a shop in the Barri Gotic, plenty more stuff, all made from recycled materials.
You might also notice the folded bicycle on the ladie’s feet, the latest trend here.

A special place for us is Goa, in India. Sachin has a very nice blog about this special place, you can visit it here.

  1. I just love products and shops like these! Fortunately, the kids in our university keep coming up with stuff like these (old tarpaulin signs are a favorite to recycle) and they have a great outlet in the university bookstore.

  3. There are shops like this in our downtown area.
    I hope you get back to one hundred percent soon. This really kicked your butt didn't it?

  5. Gives hope that my son won't have to read a book about 'green life' and the sounds of birds we were once able to hear.
    A wonderful start into the new week.

  8. I've not seen anything quite like this here, unfortunately. A very intriguing place. Survival, in the long run, depends on our ability to recycle, I think, for our resources are being tapped out.
