smells like... victory
Back in April, we got to attend a gala for Dream in Green, a Miami-area sustainability initiative, thanks in part to the generosity of Greg Hamra. The event featured a silent auction which included, among the usual vacation packages and whatnot, an awesome dual-flush toilet by Caroma. We just found out that team tin box prevailed. Actually, we're not sure anyone else bid on this beauty. No accounting for taste.
Caroma is an Australian company that has spent years developing plumbing fixtures that use water sparingly. Their local distributor, Alterna, is also a good source for other sustainable construction materials, like bamboo plywood and recycled paper countertops.
