Green Gadgets

Earlier this summer I was fortunate enough to travel to Singapore  to visit family.  While over there I couldn’t help but search for the green stores in the city and see if I could find any green gadgets- after all Asia is known for its state of the art technology.  Sure enough Singapore provided multiple options.  I ended up finding, hidden away in the corner of Chinatown,  Choose– Singapore’s first Eco-store.  When I went to check it out I found lots of interesting gadgets, artwork and sustainable and recycled appeal.  They even gave me a booklet on places I could go to in Singapore for products that were not tested on animals!  One of the most interesting and practical items I found was a rechargeable cat flashlight made my kikkerland.

It has a hand pump that you crank and this feeds a small generator that produces electrical energy.  It is great because it is very cute, so much fun, and so practical!  Now when you are doing outdoor activities you never have to worry that your flashlight will run out of batteries.  And it is pretty awesome to know that your eco-footprint is being reduced at the same time.  You can buy it online through Amazon and Revdesign. Also check out some stores locally like Pop Deluxe and REI for more green gadgets.  Or if you would rather order online, ThinkGeek has a lot of eco-friendly products and gadgets as well, some that even use alternative power like this one.  Look around, you might be surprised at what you might find.  You can reduce your eco-footprint in so many ways- you might even find a way that no one has thought of yet!

Be creative, be green, be happy.
