If you're in the market for an eco-friendly charging station, the VoltPot Table is exactly what you have been looking for. Not only does it look stereotypically environmental (it has grass sprouting out of it, for goodness sake!), it powers your gadgets via dirt.

Using a Microbial Fuel Cell, which is built into the planter half of the VoltPot Table, the invention is able to harness the power of naturally occurring microbes. I didn't even know that dirt could power anything.
