25 Oct Recycling with the Eden Project
A wee journey to Oban, Argyll on Monday to meet with Shauna Cameron Architects resulted in some geeky Levelone excitement! After the meeting was concluded I spied a futuristic clipboard on my client’s desk. Yes, yes I know my daily high-points being lifted by a recycled circuit board may seem sad to the non techies, but I can tell you there was a large feeling of emptiness until I got my hands on my own funky clipboard-tech. Shauna Cameron informed me the clipboard was purchased on a recent visit to the Eden Project in Cornwall.
Inside the artificial biomes at the Eden Project are plants that are collected from all around the world. The project is located in a reclaimed Kaolinite pit, near the town of St Blazey and also close to the larger town of St Austell. The complex is dominated by two huge enclosures consisting of adjoining domes that house thousands of plant species, and each enclosure emulates a natural biome. The domes consist of hundreds of hexagonal and pentagonal, inflated, plastic cells supported by steel frames. The first dome emulates a tropical environment, and the second a Mediterranean environment.
So anyway, as work has been full on at Levelone HQ, a trip to Cornwall was out of the question, so I settled for the next best thing, an online purchase from the Eden Project online shop, which has a wealth of other interesting products. With my curious nature, I could not just settle for the recycled circuit board clipboard, but had to indulge in purchasing the equally well styled circuit board business card holder, all arriving unscathed this afternoon…as they say in Cumbernauld……Boom there’s yur recycled circuit board clipboard & business card holder!
