The only thing that Betz White’s Toadstool Rain Bucket Hat are missing is a pair of these clever recycled plastic bag rain boots. Louie Rigano of the RISD Waste for Life studio designed these as a sustainable product that could be made by cartoneros, impoverished folks living in Buenos Aires, Argentina, who make a living collecting plastic bags. Rigano has instructions and a template posted on his site. The trick in the boots is to fuse an additional fibrous material in between the plastic layers. Refer to the Betz White tutorial for detailed instructions on fusing plastic bags. (via ecouterre)

Goli Mohammadi

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
