At the House of European Design store on Jackson street in San Francisco. Don’t bring the fire marshalls to your house when you have this lamp on. The ingenious design is a simple play on your eyes as the match appears to never go out and looks fully exposed to a possible fire hazard. The brass ‘match’ sits on a porcelain cube and as the oil lamp burns, the match sits there, as if it’s just about to burn out but it never does. The cube measures 3.5 inches. It was designed by Julia Thesenfitz, known for her innovative and clever designs. Find here.
Is one generation more environmentally responsible than another? A survey from the Pew Research Center says no.
The four generations surveyed—Millennials Gen-Xers, Boomers and Silents—participate in environmentally-conscious behavior to roughly the same degree.
As an example, recycling from the home—the most popular way for all generations to exibit their greenness—is done by 69% of Millennials (19-29 ), 77% of Gen-Xers (30-45), 72% of Boomers (45-65) and 77% of the Silent generation (65+).
Over 50% of consumers in all generations buy green products, even if they are more expensive.
When food shopping, the Silent generation is least likely to buy organic. Gen-Xers are the most likely—with 38% saying they try to buy organic even if it costs more.
Overall, though, the Pew researchers found income seemed to be a greater factor in making green purchases than age: 63% of Millennials with an income over $75,000 say they buy environmentally friendly products, while less than half with an income less than $30,000 try to buy green products.
