Sharing Water

Sharing Water

I bet some of you have potted plants somewhere in your garden and half of you actually take care of them. Why not be a little kind to nature’s creatures and get the City Oasis pot. It’s pretty much a regular pot with a modern flare but what’s unique is the drain plate. It’s a lot wider than normal and holds a lot more water; perfect for the neighborhood alley cat. Clean water is hard to come by so share and share alike.

Saverclip Shames Your Electricity Usage

Saverclip Shames Your Electricity Usage

The Saverclip is a clothespin like device that reads electric usage on any power cable it’s clipped onto. Say for example the slow cooker crock pot you leave on all day. How much power is it actually using and would the results make you change your mind to using something faster, like a pressure cooker?

Scrunch, Flip, Flip, Tumble

Scrunch, Flip, Flip, Tumble

No, I am not talking about a new dance that is the latest craze, but about a new eco-friendly bag designed by Hetal Jariwala and Eva Bauer called 24/7. These two designers met while attending Stanford’s Product Design graduate program and hit it off so well, that they started their own green company called Flip and Tumble. The idea behind the bag is that the designers were moving to a greener lifestyle and wanted to use their reusable bags.

Sustainable Flash Memory Card Holder

Sustainable Flash Memory Card Holder

We all know there are way too many flash memory card formats out there. At last I count I believe there are at least 9 of them. Normally I try to stick with SD or Micro SD cards but sometimes that’s not possible so what’s one to do when transporting all those easily lost cards? Get a memory card holder.

Become One with Your Environment

Become One with Your Environment

The chair looks simple and quiet, yet if you notice, there is a planter that wants to connect with the chair. As the plant grows, it becomes one with the chair; A unity of good fortune. As the two unite, the owner of the chair continues to bring life to them by feeding them and giving them fresh air and light. A pot of fortune to last a lifetime.

Symbolic Reminder to Global Warming

Symbolic Reminder to Global Warming

The “Heat” wall thermometer was designed as a symbolic reminder to the reality of global warming and the effects it has on our environment, especially our daily drinking water needs. Using a magnifying glass that marks the now not so exceptional 35-40 degree Celsius temperature area of the thermometer, it symbolically shows the viewer the common, yet undesirable increase in temperatures that are having a deep and worrying effect on our global drinking water supplies.

Reusing Old Inkjet Cartridges

Reusing Old Inkjet Cartridges

Pre-Packaged is a continuous circuit of light daisy-chained together kinda like Christmas lights. The reuse and repurpose function speaks to the eco-enthusiast within us while the soft glow from an embedded LED speaks to practical applications.

I Shred Paper Because I Like The Power

I Shred Paper Because I Like The Power

Go Green is a next generation of paper shredding machines and OH GOD how I LOVE shredding pepper. So what’s so “next-gen” about this? Not only does it slices, dices, and shreds. It also recycles your waste paper into new usable products. For example, scraps of paper are turned into Post-It notes. Clever clever!
