One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.
Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”
The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”
“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make a difference!”
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf.
Then, smiling at the man, he said, “I bet I made a difference for that one.”
Tenenbaum Hazan have come up with a way to take hard plastic roller blinds that have come to the end of their useful lives, and turn them into something new – a chair.
The stylish TRIS seat is made up of a wooden closed contour that holds the old blinds together to create a useful new product. Since the piece is self-assembled, users can swap out the blinds for others too if they feel like a change.
