The Blue Economy?
What is that?
Well if you are holding the sleeve, you have it in your hand.
This sleeve is made out of stone!
Not one tree was cut!
This is one of the 100 ideas in the book 'The Blue Economy' by Gunter Pauli.
It was an real eyeopener for me.
Wait, stop.
Please answer this question before you read any further:
How long does is take before you can recreate a RAIN forest on a bare savanne where all trees were cut 100 years ago?
Make a guess, ask your colleague.
Did you know that they cut oak forests in China to make pulp to harvest mushrooms for the special taste.
Well new research found out that you can get the same taste when you harvest them on coffee-pulp.
In almost all big cities small companies are being founded that collect the coffee pulp from bars and restaurants to harvest mushrooms and sell them back to restaurants.
Waste becomes rough material in funghi town:)
A team in London made a lamp that works on gravity, 24/7 available.
Imagine the feeling if you worked on a project like that.
How adventurous you'd feel.
Projects like these make cleaning up the world fun.
You can find more ideas on
Thanks Gunter and many others.

Now let's get to the heart of the matter: the music
All songs are composed, arranged and played on the Kelstone.
A new musical instrument.
Does it matter? Not really.
What matters is that the music somehow resonates in you.
Welcome to my world.
