Small is Beautiful

~ Creativity is unknown language,
everyone understands. ~

Full responsibility for garbage falls on our shoulders if we are more aware of what we throw out, what we use and how. Have you ever thought about rain drops?

I can easily guess you are curious what I mean with it? Think for a while right now:

'' Autumn. Heavy raining outside. You are wet like your umbrella. Back to home. You can change your coat, but what to do with rain drops on your umbrella? ''

Oh wait, one minute: Do not waste them!

Something silly?

Absolutely no.

Maybe you are the one who loves flowers but forgets to water them regularly... Then you can create of your own small green garden, and take pride yourself:) Sit on your front porch in the morning, have your coffee and watch nature in front of your eyes: it is your creation. Sounds a lovely idea, no?

As seen above, it's the stylish and eco-conscious creative idea from from Kyouei Design: Umbrella Pot

WoW, I was obviously drawn to this smart design, I liked very much. It collects rain drops at the bottom of the pot, recycles them by a plant planted in a smaller pot at the bottom. Nihon sugoi ne!

Today's Tip: Japanese community goes zero waste even for rain drops! Please compost and recycle everything like rain drops for a more green world. We need to do so. I think every community should follow Japanese lead on this way.

To make your dream real, you need to place your order. There you can also browse other products.


  1. Hi Nihal! 2008.08.08 is a very special day for Blogtrotter. So, before I start commemorating, let me just tell you how much I appreciate your comments on my blogs! Thanks a lot!
    Beautiful pots, great pictures, lovely message!
    Have a great day and a wonderful weekend!

  2. Terrific idea. I liked the frame napkin on their site too since I use paper napkins in collage art.


  3. What a simple, yet amazing concept. I agree that we all need to make a huge effort to improve our world.

  4. What a fantastic idea!

  5. @ Gil: Although it's belated, hopefully it will just extend the celebration a bit. 33 yrs marriage, that is awesome! No doubt, your marriage should be a hearth, from when comes the peace, harmony, and warmth of soul and spirit.

    ** Hope you both had a wonderful anniversary day and & Many happy returns **
