British designer Tiffany Roddis's 'Ecoshel' is a futuristic eco-friendly bus stop aimed to reduce the impact of carbon emissions from buses. Ecoshel integrates solar cells, an electric generator, pressure pads and even recyclable materials, which not only produce electricity but also minimize our carbon footprint.

Ecoshel is quite hi-tech, as it features an easy-read route finder and GPS signals to provide travel information and guidance to passengers.

Implications - With eco-consciousness growing rapidly across the globe, products that have been around for a long time are going green. Bus stations, automobiles, and even cellphones are getting eco makeovers to appeal to the consumer drive towards green living.
