 When it comes to the lifecycle of clothing,Levi’s were surprised to find that most of theenvironmental impact of a pair of their jeans was not in their materials, manufacture ortransportation but what happens when they go home. They found that over 60 per cent of the impact comes from laundering, and80 per cent of that impact came from usinga clothes dryer! The sturdy usethings dryingrack is stacked at waist length to then behoisted up to the ceiling – to catch all thatrising warmth – with a simple manoeuvre.It’s made from plantation sugar gum and can be delivered Australia-wide in an easy-to-assemble kit for $250 plus delivery.

/sec, they only let in a third of the airflow of the required Australian standard, meaning you won’thave to worry about cold or hot air floodingin. Altair louvres also have built-in drainagechannels and guarantee high levels of waterresistance. Unfortunately, even the bestlouvres on the market can’t match the averageair infiltration rate of standard, well-sealed windows, but these do get close. Price onapplication.
