The Gingko Solar Tree is not the first of its kind, but it's certainly one of the more stylish versions to hit the market. Powered by solar energy, it allows people to charge their devices in a eco-friendly way. The Gingko Solar Tree takes it a step further by being made out of sustainable materials including bamboo as well as a rechargeable lithium battery.

The design of the Gingko Solar Tree is inspired by the Japanese Ginkgo tree. After receiving enough funding on Kickstarter, the sustainable dock is now available for pre-order. Sleek and simple overall with a manageable height that will bring to mind small desk lamps, the charger ensures that smartphones and other mobile devices stay juiced up in as convenient a way as possible.
