Amber Dohrenwend is a teacher, mother, and author of the Tokyo-based blog, The Cardboard Collective. She designs modern cardboard toys, furniture, tools, and playthings that can be recycled at the end of their life/use. Recently she used a cardboard box outfitted with castor wheels to transport her children through the Detroit Metro airport in lieu of a stroller. Cardboard is a material we keep re-imagining she says, using cardboard for gardening just goes to show that cardboard has no limits.
When I was on a cardboard finding expedition at my local grocery store, the produce manager asked me if I was interested in any of the watermelon boxes they had out behind the store.Watermelon boxes, I thought, why didn't I think of that before?
