Video game inspiration receives massive support in request for repair donations. Watazumi Shrine sits on the coast of an island in Nagasaki Prefecture, and is dedicated to Toyotama-hime, a Shinto sea goddess. In keeping with this, the shrine’s most distinctive feature is its torii gates that rise out of the ocean waters. However, with Nagasaki being located at the southwest corner of Japan’s main islands, the prefecture is prone to getting hit by powerful typhoons in late summer and early autumn. So while the shrine ordinarily boasts a pair of watery torii gates, the one seen on the right in […]
Congress isn’t the only place battling over border wall money this week. GoFundMe, the crowdfunding website, has also turned into a major battleground with the president’s supporters asking average Americans to pony up — and some enterprising opponents seeking ways to foil whatever wall emerges. Luke O’Neil started a page Thursday to, in his words, “build a giant escalator over the wall.” “The wall is never going to be built but just in case it is we will build a series of giant escalators that are spaced out a half mile along the wall on either side and if that […]

The new service allows artists to press vinyl with no financial risk. Bandcamp is getting into the vinyl pressing business with the launch of a new crowdfunding service aimed at making it easier for artists to release their music on wax. The service will operate a similar model to crowdfunding services like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, allowing artists to launch a campaign to raise money to release their music on vinyl once a minimum goal has been reached. Bandcamp’s service will also handle pressing and shipping. “The new service eliminates risk, since fans’ orders finance the pressing, rather than the artist […]

“Pay what you feel” has been the catchcry of the iconic Lentil as Anything restaurants for 20 years. But now, the charity with three restaurants in Melbourne and one in Sydney is asking the community to give back. Under Melbourne’s coronavirus lockdown, the not-for-profit restaurants have lost their generous diners but are still handing out thousands of meals to those who have lost their jobs and their homes. “It has been a real loss to us not having the generous donors who come and eat and donate and subsidise the people who can’t afford to pay”, founder Shanaka Fernando said.

Who is Full Circle? We are three friends that have a deep love for our planet and are increasingly concerned about the damage that current consumer models are causing. We were becoming increasingly frustrated with the amount of packaging and single-use items that seemed almost inescapable and couldn’t quite believe that Cambridge did not yet have a zero waste retailer.

Full Circle sprang to life six months ago when we decided that we would be those someones and we began selling zero waste, reusable, low carbon and […]
