What an awesome Pinterest find! I spotted this through Sanuk, some of our favourite footwear. Since I prefer to be barefoot or in jandals, Sanuk’s, “It’s not a shoe, it’s a sandal” is perfect if I need to wear shoes. Plus, they’re vegan! I love their motto, “Smile, pass it on!” When we were down in Kaikoura, I found another pair on sale. I do not usually worry about a bag, but the lady found the ones they come in which are a biodegradable corn bag. Another reason to love Sanuk!
Anyways, I have been looking at making this driftwood display for awhile now and have finally managed to make it. If you are looking for a new way to display photos, this is super easy, cheap, and eco-friendly. I will admit ours is a bit rough due to the twine we used, but we figured it added to the rugged beachy look. You can easily put new photos up whenever you feel like it. We found the driftwood at the beach and ordered Go Bamboo pegs from Cheeky Cherubs. These are environmentally friendly pegs that are only $4 for 20 pegs. Especially a great buy considering they are biodegradable and sustainable bamboo.
Although our photo display above is not as eco-friendly as our driftwood one, we love these photos as well so I just wanted to share with you another cool way to arrange your photos. Now to find a special place for our driftwood photo display.
We were super excited to be able to go and pick up free bamboo. We made a trip on Sunday to cut and pick some up as much as we could fit in the car, and we were back again for more tonight with a good range of thin and thick bamboo. We have so many ideas to use the bamboo after drying it out. We are thinking teepees, gardening, and a xylophone at the moment. If you have any tips, or want to let us know your ideas on what you would do with bamboo, we would love to hear them.
Oh, and speaking of bamboo…I still have not shared our day out at Kiritehere so I will quickly leave you with a few photos of our bamboodies from eco peko. We love them! Remember the awesome organic tops we ordered and one we gave away? If not, check out our eco peko post. Well, their online shop has now re-opened after their move, and there is a HUGE opening sale tomorrow 8am to 5pm with everything half price. Plus, by sharing their Facebook status, you will receive a code that gives you free shipping. Go and check out their website for some awesome deals and natural organic clothing.
