"The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Some super eco-cool items from eco-enterprise Acorn Studios located out of Edmonton. They transform found objects and recycle them into eco-friendly functionable objects. Can be found at Shift Natural Fashion/ Hemp & Co in Victoria. Great gift ideas for the eco-conscious...

Apple for the Teacher Ornament
Created by hand from old circuit board, each apple comes with a soldered wire stalk and is finished with a ribbon for hanging. A fruitful creation...

Keyboard Magnets
These geeky magnets are hand made from old cash register keys, broken keyboards and telephones. Each set contains 6 assorted super-strong rare-earth magnets and comes packaged in a reusable tin. Hmmm... can have fun with this!

Sparkly CD Clock
Created by hand using three discs, each clock undergoes a heating and cooling process to create the unique irridescent cracked effect on the surface. May have once held tunes, now time goes tick-tock..

Floppy Disk Notebook
Handmade from recycled floppy disks and 100 pages of plain white recycled paper. Floppy disks, remember those?! Go retro with this book....

As their motto states: "Add some geek to your life...."
