During research related to two long term interests, lighting and gardening, I discovered someone who had merged the two in a conscious, sustainable manner. An architect from the Netherlands, Anja, developed a fascination with the GreenWalls created by Patrick Blanc. GreenWallNL on etsy now provides DIY kits for home use. Her kits include instructions related to water and light requirements, in addition to suggestions for plants suitable for particular conditions.
GreenWallNL also sells Anja’s original lampshades that are stunning, organic in form. Made from re-cycled and up-cycled materials, including newsprint they are not only beautiful but sustainably motivated.
