A hybrid bike, a new brand of toilet paper, reusable tote bags and a water-powered clock are among seven eco-friendly products listed by Scientific American.
The water-powered clock sounds cool – all you need to do is fill the reservoir with water, add a pinch of salt and the chemical reaction that takes place powers your watch. If only this technology could run buses and aircraft! It costs only $16. But then, time is money.
Of all these products, my heart went to the ‘disposable cutlery’. What’s new, you may ask. Imagine cutlery made out out of ‘vegware‘ – 80% potato starch and 20% soy oil! What sounds truly amazing is that these products reportedly handle heat and washing very well. And they’re priced right – $6 for 50. Hmmm…
And just a few days ago, I mused about making plastics edible.
