Storyboard Furniture, in collaboration with ideacious, is on a mission to salvage the wood of a historic dying apple orchard right here in Toronto.
With only 9 days left on their Indiegogo campaign, be sure to support the Apple Wood Salvage Initiative and nab a limited edition Foreword shelf by said the king made from the salvaged apple trees (pictured above).
We’re also looking for help to get the word out on the campaign, which aims to save 400 trees slated for destruction at the Ferri family’s Big’r Apple Farm in Huttonville, a region that is quickly being swallowed up by suburbs (so get a’blogging, tweeting & facebooking!).

The Hygienna Solo, created by Mechanical Engineer Goran Basic, is a discreet nozzle that transforms plastic water bottles into a portable hygiene device.
While the product’s main function might make most North Americans feel a little squeamish, the bidet & faucet are common to many parts of the world. In fact, people from those places often find the exclusive use of toilet paper to be rather unsanitary!
Cultural norms aside, the ultra-portable Solo can easily fit in the palm of one’s hand and be carried around in one’s pocket, purse, or book bag.
One of the key features of the Solo is the angle of the nozzle, which is designed to easily provide a direct flow of water to the desired wash area. Insert the Solo into a small mouth water bottle for a refreshing stream of water that’s more effective than toilet paper. Available now on ideacious for just $9 – grab yours today!
Introducing the InCOG Bike Multitool. Designed by Joshua Brassé & the ideacious Team, the InCOG Multitool is the manifestation of the obvious – keep your bike tools on your bike. And where better to keep the emergency drivers, patch kit, and the like, other than hidden in the handlebar itself.
The InCOG Bike Multitool is designed to fit the majority of handlebars. Its innovative design flexes through the inside of your handlebar to accommodate nearly every shape. The minimum inside dimension of your bar must be 19mm for this InCOG Multitool to stay in place properly. The MAXIMUM inside dimension is 24mm.
The InCOG Multitool embraces both definitions of the term “out-of-sight”. On one hand the discrete placement of your InCOG Multitool contained within your handlebar keeps thieves and meddlers off your gear. On the other, the exposed end-cap of your InCOG Multitool is designed with street-stylish finishing, and has a tamper-resistant friction lock & custom key design that looks great too.
Each component that comes with your InCOG Multitool has been selected to fit the majority of hardware your bike is likely to have. If needed, any of the tools can easily be replaced at your local hardware store so that your multitool is perfectly in tune with the needs of your ride.
The InCOG Multitool is now available for preorder on ideacious. Just $5 secures your position in the preorder queue and earns you a commission on future sales!

All card stock and envelopes are made from recycled paper, and the packaging is both reusable & recyclable.
