have we mentioned lately how much we love the uniform project?

View more news videos at:

"Thread NY caught up with Sheena Matheiken at the tail end of The Uniform Project, her year-long exercise in sustainability wherein she wore one dress for 365 days. We accompanied her to a couple of her favorite Williamsburg shopping haunts, where she hones her styling genius.

Since the first day of the first dress, we've been enthralled by Matheiken's journey, which she documented with a daily photograph of her outfit on The Uniform Project blog. The point of her yearlong exercise? To extol the value of reuse while raising funds for The Akanksha Foundation's efforts to school children in the slum's of her native India. Supporters could contribute cash to the cause or accessories to help her create new outfits.
The yearlong experiment has concluded, but Matheiken has only just begun to exercise her styling genius. We were thrilled to tag along on a mini-tour of two Williamsburg boutiques that supported her mission, Treehouse and Malin Landaeus, during which she showed us how to maximize what you've already got."

thank you so much to sheena matheiken of the uniform project and laurel pinson of NBC's thread ny! and supposedly this video is in taxi cabs all over ny right now! please let us know if u see it!

DoTank is a public vessel for interdisciplinary exploration, engagement and enhancement of our urban environment through means outside of the formal urban planning process. We make rapid and meaningful change by exploring and testing in our laboratory: Brooklyn, NY. By catalyzing local intellectual capital, we carry out interventions meant to improve the built environment. We connect, capture, build, design, and produce, and above all else, we Do.

Windowfarms are vertical, hydroponic, modular, low-energy, high-yield edible window gardens built using low-impact or recycled local materials. They serve to empower city folks to grow food inside, year-round, and give ordinary people a way to contribute innovations toward more sustainable cities.

Seed bombing is where gardeners throw a "green grenade" into an empty lot filling in all those empty spots and roadside tracts of land with flowers and/or food. With this unauthorized act of participation guerrilla gardeners do the work that our cities should be paying to have done.

Worms!!!! And indoor composting.
