Discarded to Divine is an upcycling charity project involving designers and students in San Francisco; an article is here and the website, including images, is here. This will be the project's third year, wish them the best of luck.

Staples have switched all their copy and print centres to recycled paper, a first for a national printing service in the US.

Still from Environmental Leader, on the confusion over carbon labels and what they mean, if anything.

Via the Sustainable Style Foundation (I'm still catching up post-Melbourne), Toggery by Kate D'Arcy - with lots of colour! The website claims the product to be 100% organic cotton and locally made; I'd love to know more about the dyes used.

Via Ecotextile News, polyester uniforms of Japanese telecom firm Oki Electric Industry are to be recycled by Teijin, the same company that's working with Patagonia on the Common Threads garment recycling program.

That's all for this morning.
