Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

People often wonder if we could turn anything sustainable. Energy right now is the main concern for all because it is one of the most important essentials for most of the things that we use regularly to work. What about sustainable things that do not require energy but are made through sustainable ways? Introducing, Naturescast by Natures Legacy.

Naturescast is an innovation of using Mother Earth's natural scrap materials like twigs, branches and what not that are used to make eco-friendly furniture. This was achieved when the company was cleaning the surrounding areas of their factory. The problem came to them when dumping and or burning these materials could cause carbon footprints. Being in the furniture business for many years, they wondered if they can make these natural materials into furnishings. That is how Naturescast was born and turned into an eco-friendly furniture line.

Now, what does this have to do with sustainable energy and why do they call it eco-friendly furniture?
"Our facility and organization have the ff; practices to minimize carbon footprint .
1.Manufacturing Facility uses less energy for lighting and machinery . we have migrated from incandescent lamp to CFL.
2. we use very minimal water in the processing yet we have a water
retention facility that collect thousand of gallon of rainwater to be
use for mixing with our water base binder.
the same water collected are also use to test leak of our products.
3.recycling is big with us. we recycle almost anything to maximize the material.
Our packing material excess parts are shredded and mix into our
materials.
4.office practice re-use the other blank side of the paper use in facsimile, photocopy and dispose waste using a waste
segregation program
5. employees from the city are provided with transportation to the workplace as part of our carpool program thus
minimizing carbon emission
6. supplies and raw materials are sourced within a 50 miles radius
7.Employees are provided with subsidize housing program within a 10-15 minute
walking distance from the workplace thereby eliminating carbon emission
(they dont need to commute)
8.our housing are equipped with communal gardening area to encourage self sufficiency by growing their own vegetable and fruits
9.metal empty drums are utilize for fencing and roofing thereby
maximizing recycle use of the materials
10.Facility are high ceiling to allow free flow of air eliminating use of ventilation equipment thus saving energy
11. The company provides a green park where employees and their family can
relax and appreciate the beauty and value of the environment.
12.. and many more practices
13. our products are manufacture by hand , thus providing more employment opportunities to the community.
14. our binder is water base
15.our company has housing for the employees and has a foundation that support
more than 100 children for value formation and feeding class during
weekend."


Therefore, the company itself is practicing sustainable energy towards the furniture industry in which all industries should do. In recent years, each industries have started their contribution on sustainable energy. Sustaining energy nowadays are available anywhere and it is widely encouraged. This, opened new possibilities with a positive outcome for the earth itself.

How much does the average chair cost. This isn't the first line of products that have been produced using "waste" material.

http://www.vivavi.com/
http://www.urbanwoods.net/
http://www.baltix.com/index.php

Just to name a few. The issue with these products is that often they are WAY TOO expensive. Especially when they are made out of scraps and "waste" material. It's really going to take a lot to get these products used on a mass scale unfortunately. Unless I am wrong and their are cheap eco furniture designers?

They are reasonable prices. Please contact them if you are interested. For this company, the price would be partial to help the workforce of the Philippines which is a third world country. This have been taken into consideration to help the country and alot more are being considered for the pricing.
The fashion accessories are very affordable.
Feel free to ask for information from the website.

The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
