There must be more to greening my abode than that crispy plant on the windowsill. Fortunately, the folks over at Planet Green offer tips and projects from the eco-blogosphere that will pack a worm-compost punch with the panache of modern design.

I’ve changed all of the light bulbs in my apartment to energy efficient models, but Planet Green doesn’t just stop at the filament. If you’re looking for a rustic shell to transform that compact fluorescent into something a bit more cozy, Craftynest has an easy-to-follow project for these lovely hemp pendants.

Is your taste more merlot than chai? Remodelista has a DIY project for upcycling those empties into sophisticated luminescence.

Once you’ve lit up the nooks and crannies of your space, you’ll no doubt discover other neglected realms of sustainable home decor. Check out more of Planet Green’s DIY projects for record case coasters and solar powered cell phone chargers.
