Vapur is the anti-bottle for your water

We all want to help protect the environment, right? We do live here, so it’s best to make sure that we keep the place looking nice. The other creatures living here also appreciate it. One of the easiest ways to be eco-friendly is to buy things that can be used over and over, rather than just being tossed in the garbage when you’re done. Water bottles are one of the biggest culprits, as there’s no good reason why you should…

LuminAID provides cheap, solar-powered light when you need it

In disaster areas, finding a source of light can be something of an issue. Usually there isn’t any source of electricity, unless it is a small generator, which is usually dedicated to a medical shelter of some sort. Individuals are forced to rely on small fires, flashlights, or kerosine lamps. None of these are particularly good choices, as they all require fuel of some sort. However, if this LuminAID light gets the necessary funding, there may be a much better…

Eliminate your junk (snail) mail with 41Pounds

When you were a kid, getting something in the mail was usually an exciting ordeal. Maybe it was a birthday card from grandma, a post card from your uncle, or even a letter from your pen pal. Now that we’re all grown up, most mail can be sorted into two piles: bills and junk mail. Since I opt for paperless bills whenever I can, the latter pile is always bigger, which is sad and annoying. So how do you cut…

COOKUP 200 grills your dinner with the power of the sun

Grilling outside can be a fun way to cook while also enjoying the great outdoors. The big question is what fuel you want to use with your grill. Do you co charcoal, or gas? Or maybe you want to build a fire pit and use wood to cook over an open flame. But have you ever considered using the power of the sun to do your cooking? I’m not talking about some sort of contraption with solar panels, as you’d…

BytePac Kit is an eco-friendly external hard drive enclosure

If you want to add a little extra storage space to your computer, you have two options. You can either buy an internal drive, and open up your computer to install it. Or you can choose to spend a little extra money and get an external drive that plugs into one of your USB ports. If you choose the latter route, there are plenty of external drives to choose from, or you can buy a drive and external enclosure separately….

Solar Rechargeable RC Car goes green

Almost every child likes playing with a remote controlled car. Maybe it’s the wonder of being in control of something moving very fast, or perhaps it’s imagining that you’re driving a real car. Whatever the case, you put the remote in their hands, and a kid is going to have a blast. As the parent, however, the toy can be a real drain. Mostly on your wallet, due to the batteries the car eats up. If you’re looking for an…

Portable Laundry Pod lets you wash your clothes on the go

When you are out camping, or are on a business trip and don’t want to spend money on a laundromat, there are times in which you wish you had a portable washing machine. The big clunky piece of machinery you have at home is meant for washing giant loads of things, but what about for times when you only need to wash a few shirts here and there? The Portable Laundry Pod is a very small, lightweight washing machine that…

Agility Saietta R Bike looks good, doesn’t pollute the atmosphere

There are a lot of motorcycles in the world. You have the choice of all different shapes and sizes, but most options out there are not terribly earth-friendly. Sure, they are a whole lot better than cars economically, but the bottom line is that they still put out emissions. All of us want to be earth-conscious, but we also want to do it in style. The Agility Saietta R Bike is a dream come true for anyone who wants to…

Hack your eReader to charge by sunlight

If you’re looking to read eBooks, but don’t have any real use for a tablet, then an eReader with an E Ink display (did I use the letter ‘e’ enough in that sentence for you?) is probably your best bet. The display is much easier on the eyes than a traditional LCD screen, and they use considerably less power. Knowing that they can go so long without needing recharged, one Instructables user decided that his Kobo reader was the perfect…

Mobius Solar iPhone Battery helps you on your path to be “green”

It’s hard to think about being eco-friendly with your gadgets. After all, just owning one isn’t very “green”. Just think of all of the materials that went into constructing your favorite device, and how much energy was used to craft it. Then you go out and by cases and accessories, which will no doubt end up in a landfill someday. The very least you can do is try to occasionally recharge it with something other than a wall outlet. This…

iTouchless Bag Re-sealer

We’ve all done it at least once. Okay, probably more than once, and it’s not our faults because we were just busy, but leaving an open bag of chips out seems to happen somewhat frequently. We don’t always have a chip clip for our bags, so we just roll up the open end and hope they stay good for as long as possible. Well, never again my friend, for there is the iTouchless Bag Re-Sealer. This ingenious device will seal…
