Drinking straw furniture
As much as I've been falling in love with furniture made out of recycled materials and furniture that you can mail to yourself ,  this adorable chair-and-foot-stool set is the perfect EcoGeek guilty pleasure item, because it's cute as a button and made out of plastic drinking straws.
Offered in limited supply are the chair, stool, partition, and my personal favorite, a lampshade.  Sometimes the furniture-out-of-unexpected-items seems like a good idea, but I'm trying to imagine sinking into a series of drinking straws after a long day of work. A lampshade, however, could be an adorable creation for drinking straws that otherwise are headed to the land fills.

Gore's global warming movie
While "The Da Vinci Code" overshadowed most movie screenings in Cannes, rising from the publicity ashes is the unlikely star Al Gore, who has been making the rounds promoting a global warming documentary called "An Inconvenient Truth."  
In a review published today in the New York Times ,  movie reviewer A.O. Scott points out that this is not, however, the Al Gore Show:
"But as I said, the movie is not about him. He is, rather, the surprisingly engaging vehicle for some very disturbing information. His explanations of complex environmental phenomena — the jet stream has always been a particularly tough one for me to grasp — are clear, and while some of the visual aids are a little corny, most of the images are stark, illuminating and powerful."
The film is being touted for its clear descriptions of complicated subjects, and has been receiving rave reviews about being an engaging and sometimes even humorous look at the future of global warming.
The film opens today in New York and Los Angeles.

Mail yourself some bookshelves
For those of us that have to pack up everything we own and move once a year, we start to look at any larger pieces of furniture with abject hatred throughout the year.
But rather than toss the "free" sign on our clumsier items and dumping them in the front yard, maybe we could check out these bookshelves from D.E. Sellers.
This bookcase was created without any waste at all, and uses no fasteners or glue. You can even just pack it up in a big 'ole envelope and mail it to your next address if you run out of room on the Penske.  
Sellers has also created a single-panel series in which movers can create a table and chairs from a single sheet of wood, though it looks like the comfort level may be sacrificed for movability.

France's Auto Eco-Labels
Starting this week France will start posting eco labels that will be indicate the CO2 emissions per kilometer for each car.
As France’s environment minister, Nelly Olin, said, “We must avoid a drift towards cars that are too big for our towns, too polluting, like in other countries."
Hopefully Olin hasn't visited our hometown, where soccer moms drive Hummers to go grab a gallon of milk at the grocery store. And we really hope Olin doesn't know that we've currently made a sport out of watching college girls try to parallel-park the SUVs that their daddies bought them.
A matching "energy label" will also become compulsory for French homes starting in July.

Chicago's mulch helps make it one of the greenest cities
