100 Examples of Eco-Friendly Gadgets

From Eco-Friendly Way-Finders to Rainproof Solar Chargers

— November 24, 2015 — Eco
Making tech as green as can be, these eco-friendly gadgets are efficient and good to the environment. Whether camping equipment or a simple charger, these green products are perfect for those that practice a green lifestyle.

With phones, tablets, laptops and more, it's easy to fall into a trap of overusing energy. However, solar-powered chargers such as the HeLi-on windup mat and the rainproof Solar Panel Charger, rely on the sun's energy to power up devices. Smartphone and/or watch docks are also made green and efficient with the wooden FistCase shelf and the ALLDOCK wood console.

These eco-friendly gadgets go on to include wearables like the Worldbeing wristband which shows how the wearer's choices impact the environment as well as the backpack planter which will clean the air around the wearer.
