Plastic Bags of New York

Photographer Nicole Espina recently moved to NYC via San Diego and is totally embracing her new environment with her project Plastic Bags of New York. The project, living on Instagram and Facebook, pairs photos of discarded plastic bags with real quotes from Humans of New York. It’s highly entertaining to personify these bags and I’m glad something good is coming from all that waste. Plus, it’s really funny to imagine her chasing after plastic bags in the streets to get a good shot.

“I can walk around this city and point to 200 or 300 buildings I’ve worked on. Sometimes I go a little overboard with the pointing”

What makes you itch?

I don’t know how you feel about this, but I think this Alan Watts advice is relevant for all ages. Hit play if you want the shit schooled out of you.

“If you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time. You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living that is to do things you don’t like doing. WHICH IS STUPID. Better to live a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way.”

Stalyon gives the gift to adventure to those who need it most

Add Stalyon to the list of companies jumping on the adventure/camping motif. I could sigh and say, “not another,” but I’m not actually not mad about this one bit. They’re making some really beautiful goods named after beautiful places and part of the proceeds from every purchase helps fund The Gift of Adventure, a unique camp experience designed to empower kids who are currently in the hospital fighting a life threatening illness. My faves in in their shop so far? The wristbands, wallets and moleskine covers.
