Gardeners might like this indoor-composting kit, which turns food waste into nutrient-rich plant food. The system includes a five-gallon bucket—complete with an airtight lid for odor protection and a spigot to drain liquid—that can fit under most kitchen sinks. A packet of compost starter is also included. Once the bucket is full, it takes about ten days for the waste to ferment into a usable product.
Wine Barrel Chair
This folding chair is made from salvaged 70-gallon oak wine barrels. Handmade in Northern California, the chairs can fold flat for storage. They’re stamped with the winery name under the seat and sealed with linseed oil.
Kids can blast off in this pint-size spaceship that’s made of 100-percent recycled cardboard. Turn it into an art project by letting them customize it with markers or paint. The spaceship mails in a reusable flat box that can be used for storage.
