Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Nigeria, Chad, Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Djibouti. Those are the countries. It will be drought-resistant species, mostly acacias. And this is a fucking brilliant idea you have no idea oh my Christ

it’s already happening, and already having positive effects. this is wonderful, why have i not heard of this before? i’m so happy!
Oh wow, this is fantastic!
I turned a thing into a thing.
Large T-shirt to dress.
It’s not anything all that impressive, but I’m pretty happy with the polished look on the top band. There’s no elastic in the dress; I may add some in the back, but I like the smooth appearance from the front, so I want to keep that.
Most schools in rural India can’t afford basic supplies like desks, and most of the students attending them can’t afford backpacks.
The Bombay-based nonprofit Aarambh worked with designers to come up with an ingenious solution to both problems: Their simple stencil transforms old cardboard boxes into a convertible desk and school bag.
Forget Me Nots | These tags are supremely inadequate. That’s okay. Planted some forget-me-nots in a pot on my windowsill. The thought that maybe I can keep these alive gives me hope in the possibility of my future as an adequate adult.
Cranes for Collier | Thousands of paper cranes showed up in the Stata Center to commemorate the anniversary of the Boston marathon bombing and the death of Officer Sean Collier.
Tomato Basil with Grilled Cheese | One of my favorite things to make, and favorite things to eat. If I ever go to a restaurant with a tomato basil soup, I have to try it. The one I remember best is the first one I ever had, from the Radius Café in San Antonio, since closed.
Non-Traditional Baozi (?) | I told a friend who loves Chinese food that I was making mantou, a steamed Chinese bread, and she wanted to know if I was putting anything inside. Traditionally, steamed bread is filled with pork or something along those lines for savory dishes, and maybe red bean paste for a dessert. Having neither of those, I pulled out some frozen strawberries and mango chunks I had on hand, sliced them up and sprinkled sugar on top, and filled the buns with that. They were delicious.
This is ingenious.
mcdonalds needs to do this
okay but I’m actually really scared that the lid of the drink is going to come off or something
//the way this works is that it stops about 2 inches above the top (the hole only big enough to go that far without ripping) so you wouldn’t have to worry about the lid coming off!
it’s really a brilliant idea. it cuts down on the amount of materials used, and space it takes up. all around good engineering.
from the looks of it it might be recycled materials too? if not then it should be.
it frees up your other hand from having to carry your drink but also doesn’t shove the cold drink next to the warm food
This is the definition of innovation, no amount of sleeves on a blanket can beat this.
Not sure if this can really qualify as a craft, but I’m proud of it. Bunked a bed on top of mine with help from Winter, and put a piece of plywood on top, covered in fleece so it’s a comfortable surface. Now my sewing machine is up there so I can work on projects and have TV shows going at the same time.
Underneath the bunk, there are Christmas lights woven through the frame, and 2.5 yards of fabric draped under it to diffuse the light.
