    Yves Béhar (born 1967) is a Swiss designer, entrepreneur, and sustainability advocate. He is the founder and principal designer of Fuseproject, an award-winning industrial design and brand development firm. Béhar is also Chief Creative Officer of the wearable technology company Jawbone, and Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of August, creators of the first Smart Lock.
Béhar’s design work emphasizes the integration of commercial products with sustainability and social good. In 2011, the Conde Nast Innovation and Design Awards recognized him as Designer of the Year. His clients have included Herman Miller, PUMA, MINI, See Better to Learn Better, General Electric, Swarovski,Samsung, Jimmyjane, and Prada.

Béhar is a sustainability advocate who argues that a designer’s role is to create products that are both commercially viable and contribute to social good.
He collaborates with clients to design and implement sustainable projects. As the chief industrial designer of One Laptop per Child (OLPC’s) XO laptop, Béhar designed a series of low-cost, low-power laptops for distribution to low-income schoolchildren. The impact of OLPC on developing countries was so great that Uruguay purchased approximately 1,000,000 OLPC devices, and Rwanda has included an image of the OLPC XO notebook on their new currency. In 2008, Béhar redesigned the NYC Condom logo and packaging, as well as NYC Condom vending machines for the New York City Department of Health as a part of an initiative to reduce HIV/AIDS and teen pregnancy.
Béhar designed eyeglasses for the “Ver Bien para Aprender Mejor"  program. "Ver Bien para Aprender Mejor" has provided free pairs of custom-designed eyeglasses to students throughout Mexico since 2010. In May 2011, Béhar partnered with Tipping Point, a San Francisco based philanthropic organization, who made a pledge to the “See Well to Learn” program, which aims to distribute free pairs of glasses toSan Francisco Bay Area students.
Additionally, Béhar is the only designer to have received two Index: Awards, with an additional nomination for his design of Puma’s “Clever Little Bag.

    World Bamboo Day in Auroville

    World Bamboo Day is a day of celebration to increase the awareness of bamboo globally. Where bamboo grows naturally, bamboo has been a daily element, but its utilization has not always been sustainable due to exploitation.

    The Greenest School on Earth

    John Hardy on a tour of the Green School, his off-the-grid school in Bali that teaches kids how to build, garden, create (and get into college). The centerpiece of campus is the spiraling Heart of School, perhaps the world’s largest freestanding bamboo building.

    TED TALK

    The Green School (Bali) is a private, kindergarten to secondary school located along the Ayung River near Ubud, BaliIndonesia.The school’s ecologically-sustainable design and focus on sustainability education.

    The school’s 25+ buildings are not off the grid but use some renewable energy sources including micro-hydro power from a “hydroelectric vortex”, solar power, and bio-diesel.

    The school’s campus is designed on an “organic permaculture system”, and some of the school’s students cultivate an organic garden as part of their school activities. The school’s buildings are built primarily from renewable resources including bamboo, local grass, and traditional mud walls.

    Hola a tod@s!
Ya estoy de vuelta y listo para seguir compartiendo!
Tuve la suerte de visitar la “Green School" en Bali, Indonesia... pfff no saben lo increíble que es, espero la lleguen a visitar algún día; con el edificio más grande hecho en bambú, se mantiene con energías renovables como la energía hidroeléctrica, energía solar y el biodiesel.
Por esto y más, ganó el “Greenest School on Earth" award en el 2012.
En fin, les dejo un pequeño artículo que seguro les gustará.
Saludos!

Bamboo bike frame
Hola a todos! les comparto el proyecto que les platiqué hace unos meses y que por fin tuve tiempo de documentar. Espero les guste, saludos!
______________________ 
Upcycling experiment of potential bike waste material to be converted into a beautiful sustainable classic Indian bicycle.
Besides having reused and upgraded it’s life, it is designed in order to be able to replace each bamboo when losing it’s strenght or broken.
At the same time, and following the C2C (cradle to cradle) approach, the “joints” use NO glue, so that the bike can be disassembled for full material recycling.
 
Love from India

After going to several places to find the disposed bike to use, finally found one in EcoService who gave me a great deal for it.
 
It was completely rusted and ready to be sold by it’s weight.



The “Making of" had several locations as I had to move around to get the proper tools and materials.
 
Bamboo Center (photo above) we`re greatly kind to let me use their workshop and shared their knowledge on bamboo manipulation and use.







Thanks to Faheem Ahamed for his support and Auroville Bamboo Center for sharing their knowledge along with their workshop facilities.

    Ahora que son diseñadores quiero ver quien se interesa en los que realmente lo necesitan.
Chic@s, lean a Papanek, “Design for the real world" les aseguro que encontrarán cosas MUY interesantes incluso no estando atraíd@s en el diseño social o sustentable.
Social design
Social design is design that is mindful of the designer’s role and responsibility in society; and the use of the design process to bring about social change.
Within the design world social design is sometimes defined as a design process that contributes to improving human well-being and livelihood. 
The agenda of social design is inspired by among others’ Victor Papanek’s idea that designers and creative professionals have a responsibility and are able to cause real change in the world through good design. 

Papanek writes about responsible design. Designers can contribute to designing more ecological products by carefully selecting the materials they use.


Papanek also remarks on designing for people’s needs rather than their wants. 
Responsible design includes many directions and one of these is design for the Third World.

    Ecosan Toilets
Ecological sanitation, also known as ecosan or eco-san, are terms coined to describe a form of sanitation that usually involves urine diversion and the recycling of water and nutrients contained within human wastes back into the local environment.
Working of the eco-san/dry toilets





These “Eco-San” toilets are constructed with two vaults above the ground.  A specially installed squatting pan diverts the urine out of the unit where it is drained into a small plant bed. The faeces are “deposited” into one of the vaults; after each use the faeces are covered with a cupful of ash. The first vault is used for about six months or until it is three-quarters full; it is then sealed and the second vault used.  As the second vault is in use, the faeces in the first vault decompose.  The decomposition process reduces the faeces in volume and kills all dangerous pathogens.  At the end of the cycle, the decomposed faeces are removed for use in ornamental gardens as a soil amendment or it may be simply burnt.

Urine is pathogen free while rich in phosphate and nitrogen; it can be safely used on all crops as a substitute for expensive commercial fertilizers. Thus in farm communities it is collected and used in fields while in non-farm communities the urine is drained into flower beds or beneath a banana tree.

    el cortometraje que satiriza la obsolescencia programada

    La compañía de efectos visuales Big Lazy Robot lanzó un cortometraje de animación que ha dado muchísimo de hablar porque es una sátira bastante interesante de la obsolescencia programada, y otras observaciones de la vida moderna.

    Big Lazy Robot también llamó bastante la atención (como por ejemplo para estar entre los "Staff Pick" de Vimeo) hace un tiempo atrás gracias a otro cortometraje llamado Keloid.

    Si bien los creadores advierten que no hay que tomárselo muy en serio, y que “es un video promocional que creamos para reírnos de nosotros mismos”. Pese a eso, es un video muy interesante para ver incluso hasta por su gran calidad de animación.

    The Minnow: The first skateboard deck made out of recycled fishnets collected along the coast of Chile
Sustainable skateboard company Bureo is transforming ocean clogging fishnets into strong skateboard decks featuring a fish design and gripping scale pattern. Founded by a trio of surfer friends who want to make the ocean a better and cleaner place, the Bureo team figured out how to convert fishing nets into plastic pellets, which can then be molded into a skateboard deck. Each Bureo ‘Minnow’ skatedeck is made of recycled fishing net that has been gathered from the coast of Chile.

Last year, Bureo established ‘Net Positiva’ – Chile’s first fishnet cycling program. Net Positiva works with a local fishermen though a buy back programme. Net Positiva supplies fishermen with easy access to disposal sites for old nets and the funds help to offset the costs of new nets.

The Coastal Conservancy reports that there are around 64,000 tons of nets discarded in the world’s oceans, accounting for 10% of the ocean’s plastic pollution. Each board removed 30 square feet of nets from the ocean. Bureo co-founder Stover explains, ‘Right now, there’s more fishnet than anyone else knows what to do with. If supply becomes an issue, then we have accomplished something.’

    Happy Eggs - eggs laid by happy hens
‘Happy Eggs’ is a packaging concept for eggs.It focuses on using sustainable materials and production methods. It is targeted at environmentally conscious customers, which also value the quality of the product. Label is designed to look aesthetically pleasing as well as to minimise and simplify the use of material. The structure is made of cutted hay, using heat-pressing process to form it.This object engages people not only through visual language, but also by its natural smell. The packaging also relates to chicken’s nest, eggs natural habitat.


From the environmental point of view hay is natural, quickly growing, renewable material.Also the new usage for the hay would be helpful to maintain environmental balance. At the moment, there is no need to mow the old pastures, because the traditional breeding of grass eating animals is being replaced with big farms with different requirements, and those meadow habitats are becoming overgrown. Therefore many plant species that need light are disappearing as well. So the necessity of collecting hay could help keep those habitats in balance.
