global green USA - sustainability awards
This years Global Green USA Millennium Awards were designed and handcrafted by Australian-born Industrial Designer, Andrew Watson. The concept for the awards was inspired by the earth and the beauty of natural flowing lines that can be seen everywhere in nature.
The materials used in the creation of the Global Green USA Millennium Awards were recovered Pine Beetle Wood and reclaimed anodised aluminium.
The wood was sourced from infected forests here in North America, that have been devastated by pine beetles. The wood was then cut, sanded and finished with a natural oil that is the same as what is used on kitchen cutting boards and salad bowls.
The aluminium parts were reclaimed from offcuts in Andrew’s workshop and were carefully cut individually from sheets of aluminium that were due to be recycled.
