Green Idea: Nume's Cardboard Appliances

The hits keep coming from Italian designers Nume. Our previous posts about Nume (find them here) offer just a glimpse of the breadth and depth of this Milan-based design house. In further recognition of cardboard as an ideal material for children's toys (cheap and green), check out the washer and stove.

Let your kids keep the appliances pristine and white, or ask them to draw in details and designs as a fun art project. We noticed there is no cardboard dryer available. Maybe because Nume means for us to dry our clothes outside on a line to save energy; or maybe it's actually a HE washer/dryer combo model.

Each is $38 and available here.
