  • Camouflage Hummer HT1 Cellphone: Let's Be Reckless

    Finally, a cellphone for people like me who don’t give a damn about the environment and spend their free time burning rubber tires for fun. It’s the Hummer HT1 and it comes in a few choice colors.

    Ok, maybe it’s not a little green fairy, but it is a notification that tells you to unplug your phone when its charged.

  • Soltronix Solar Powered AM/FM Radio: Save the Environment, Listen to Hot Talk

    I recently had to destroy 200 CDs due to a mistake from a reproduction company and a file mix up. I ended up throwing the discs through a home shredder, which not only took forever, but is bad for the environment. (Doubly so, since my local recycler wouldn’t take the shredded bits, just whole discs and the dye used on the discs is a contaminant.) If only I had had the $12.99… Read More

  • Plextor PlexEraser Destroys Discs So You Don't Have To


    I get a considerable amount of pleasure from throwing the countless AOL discs I receive in the mail through the Fellowes shredder I have in my office.
