The Aquarius by Eco Marine Power is an incredible new sail technology that could, at long last, bring nautical transport back within the realm of wind power.

By being able to generate power via either solar or wind energy, the Squarius by Eco Marine Power has the potential to drastically reduce the carbon footprint of the world's shipping. As luck would have it, however, the series of rigid sail apparatuses also has potential for smaller craft as well.

Implications - Since global warming has caused a huge concern amongst businesses and citizens of the world, there have been a lot of changes made to products to try and help benefit the earth. Consumers tend to buy eco-friendly products so that they help to leave a smaller carbon footprint.
