Perfectly Green Humidification

Perfectly Green Humidification

There’s a brand new way to humidify your room, and it comes in a rather green looking – and acting – product from Wonsang Lee. This design takes first a simple white bucket and a green handle and rim, adds a sort of sprout-like pod which sits at the top of the water inside the bucket. The pod converts the water it sits on into steam as it moves downward through its supply – and it’s simple as that!

Visualize Your Carbon Footprint

Visualize Your Carbon Footprint

When it comes to conserving energy at home, one major setback is the lack of products that make it possible to gauge your consumption as you use energy. Octopus is an electric heating system that utilizes thermo-sensitive film that changes color depending on the intensity of the heat output, giving users a visual reminder of their carbon footprint. The film, located at the front part of the heater, can be visually customized to satisfy a variety of styles and tastes.

All That Noise and More

All That Noise and More

Green Noise Bluetooth Headset is a step in the right direction, although I think it can do with some refinements. For a first draft in the idea of having headsets that soak in the high decibels and convert them to usable energy, it is a fantastic take. Imagine cancelling all the screaming fans in a football stadium and at the same time harnessing their energy! Sounds excellent!

Swing Along Green Power

Swing Along Green Power

Giraffe Street Lamp is a very cute self-sustaining swing design that provides illumination at night. It harnesses kinetic energy each time you swing and as a double back up, utilizes the solar panel hood to soak some more energy goodness. It’s a very clever design that interweaves play and eco sense into the urban environment. Something that our future generation may as well get used to!

Bottle of Smartness

Bottle of Smartness

No matter how cool you think you look with a bottle of Evian or Bling h2o; in the boardroom you are going to be trapped with a lowly PET bottle! Unless you get smart enough to invest in great ideas like the Metamorphose. It is a bottle filter system with a unique skin that scrolls down to cover up a regular looking bottle. In a jiffy you transform an ordinary bottle to something sleek and spectacular, and one with eco-sense. The filter system extends the PET bottle’s regular life up to 10 times and yet manages to make it look sexy. It even fits well in your bag; I want one now!

Getting the Most Out of Compost

Getting the Most Out of Compost

Designer Adam Weaver describes Re:Fuse as an “anaerobic digestion unit” that reclaims gas from decomposing biological debris that would otherwise be lost. The gas collected can then be used for cooking. The user simply places food-waste in the unit and over time Re:Fuse will not only yield gas for cooking but usable fertilizer for growing more food!

Smart Bench

Smart Bench

Voda Design’s Solar Bench is a multifunctional streetlight/bench combination that harnesses solar energy to power its overhead LED lamp. Solar panels built into the bench case make it possible to place the unit in any location independent of a local power supply. Integrated outlets can also be used by the public as a daytime charging station for laptops, cell-phones, or other electronic devices. This super-convient design is a great solution for minimizizing wasted space while reducing our carbon footprint.

Get Drunk & Make Stuff!

Get Drunk & Make Stuff!

Re-Wine is a clever design that transforms from a reusable, biodegradable carrying case for your wine into a lamp shade that uses the empty bottle as the base. If you’re not looking for a new lamp, the case also has interlocking joints that allow it to be connected to other units to form a custom seat, table or shelf. The more wine you drink, the more modules you have for building lamps or other furniture! Now there’s an idea that’s sure to motivate people!

Repurposing the Reusable Grocery Bags

Repurposing the Reusable Grocery Bags

Even though my intentions are good, I’m guilty of being one of those people who takes the reusable grocery shopping bag only to never use it again! It usually ends up stuffed under sink or in a closet. This design aims to ensure the bag is reused in an entirely different way. It’s just rigid enough to carry your groceries home and then use it as a garbage bin. Stackable and available in a number of different colors, it’s an effortless way to reduce plastic consumption.

Pure Recycling

Pure Recycling

Designer Maro has thought of everything with this design. The Vita Recycle Bin uses color, shape, & texture to encourage users to divide their waste properly. The removable internal container system eliminates the use of plastic bags as well as the need to mobilize the entire container. Proportions are modeled not only for visual & material minimalism, but also to suit users who would otherwise have trouble reaching the opening. Flat-pack ready & easy to assemble/disassemble, the Vita has got all the bases covered.

The Ultimate Green Hotel

The Ultimate Green Hotel

The Urban Hotel is a very well thought-out solar-powered ‘green’ hotel. It features rainwater recycling system and a bicycle in each room, to help visitors explore the city. Now the cool thing here is that there is a specific slot in the room to place the bike and you can use it as an exercise cycle. Stored kinetic energy from it gets converted to electricity and helps power small gadgets and lights. If you get enthusiastic enough, for all you know, you could end up renting the room for free! Apparently all your pedaled miles get converted to energy savings and can be redeemed against the room rent. Sweet!

The Tamagotchi Effect

The Tamagotchi Effect

This clever device, called PowerPlant, gives users a visual (and organic) reward for using less energy at home. Wireless transmitters fitted to the main power and water supplies regulate the amount of water the plant receives- the less energy used, the more regular watering the plant receives! The emotional link people have to the living plant (AKA the Tamagotchi effect) is sure to motivate awareness of their individual carbon footprints and help them track their environmental progress.
