Zero-Waste Furniture

In efforts to reduce the tonnage dumped into our landfills, A Higher Plane began a zero-waste furniture line to help others look at things with a new pair of eyes.  Using reclaimed materials and vintage hardware parts, the pieces celebrate Canadian industrial design. *photos by Jennifer Cornthwaite

Stone wall

If you are familiar with the concept of the “20 mile diet,” then you will understand this 20-mile stone wall. The site was located within 20 miles of a extraordinary back-woods private limestone quarry. And within 5 miles of a gravel pit that produced limestone screenings. This wall was dry-laid and will last hundreds of years.
