This minimalist stool design is not only stylish but sustainable! Its seat is formed from a material you might never have heard of called eelgrass found along the beaches of the North Sea. From Germany alone, thousands of tons of this submerged aquatic vegetation wash up and are removed before being sent to landfills. Designer Carolin Peitsch saw an opportunity to put the plentiful grass to use and created a fiber-reinforced eco plastic made with the aid of bio-resin.
Don Crain’s amtrac, churning toward the embattled beach at Betio, was among the group circled in the foreground of this photo. The Japanese took up firing positions on a long pier extending into the lagoon (1) and in the hulk of a half submerged freighter in the shallows near the beach (2). From either of these positions, the defenders raked the approaching Marines with automatic weapons fire.
