Ekokook: The Kitchen of the Future That Produces, Prepares and Disposes (from Treehugger)


"Kitchens today are designed around bringing stuff in from the store and throwing out what we don’t eat. The Ekokook from Faltazi Lab, which ‘turns everyday waste into a new reusable source of energy, where each drop of water that fell on the roof or came from a tap should be used to the maximum instead of going straight down the drain.’”

We know what you’re thinking: Not another organic (or, in this case, recycled) T-shirt. But although togs made from recycled cotton or soda bottles are fast becoming old hat—and that’s a good thing—Playback Clothing manages to up the ante with tees, hoodies, and sweatshirts that take on the preexisting color of the original recycled material. To wit: No potentially hinky chemical dyes are required, which produces shirts in hues like Beer Bottle Brown, Soda Bottle Green, and Water Cooler Blue, in addition to colors gleaned from salvaged cotton scraps.”

Greener Gadgets | cardboardcase | Francesco Biasci, Martina Becattini - “”Cardboardcase” is made just with folded cardboard, and it’s completely recyclable. It’s easy to assemble and very cheap. It is plain and elegant at the same time. It’s made all with ecological materials, and it does not contribute to environment pollution. But the “Cardboardcase” allows you to develop your creativity as well! You can customize your computer case in order to fit with your taste, your home furniture and your office.”
that is, assuming the case can hold up under the heat generated by a cpu.

"Yesterday, IST Energy released the world’s first compact, mobile waste-to energy system: the GEM (Green Energy Machine). The slick-looking device converts trash into pellets that are in turn converted into electricity and gas heat. 95 percent of daily consumer waste can be dumped into the machine, including paper, plastic, wood, food, and agricultural materials.Since the GEM is so portable, it is ideal for locations that produce at least two tons of trash daily. A GEM unit that processes three tons of waste daily, for example, can power and heat a 200,000 square foot building containing over 500 people.

The GEM is eight feet high and covers the size of three parking spaces, so it won’t attract undue attention.

IST Energy is currently scheduling customer demonstrations, and initial deliveries will begin this summer. The GEM costs a hefty $850,000, but with a payback period of 3-4 years, it still seems like a no-brainer for large companies.”(via IST Announces Release of Portable “Green Energy Machine” : CleanTechnica)
