Modular Sustainability

In the new year, consider the full impact of the products you buy, with this great list of modular and sustainable goods as a start. Tegu blocks are a wonderful new take on the classic toy, complete with magnets, and made from sustainably harvested Honduran hardwoods. And Shigeru Ban’s 10-unit modular furniture system, made from an ecological paper and plastic composite, allows users to create a variety of furniture options. And even a modular building makes the list – SHoP Architect’s tallest modular building, at 32 stories, is currently being constructed in downtown Brooklyn.
