Great Last Minute Green Gifts

You’ve waited until the last possibly minute and you still don’t have everyone checked off on your list? No worries. Here are some great gadgets brought to us by Cool Green Gadgets that are perfect for the holiday season.

beer-bottlesRecycled Glass Tumblers – Made from ordinary bottles that were headed toward the landfill, the  are transformed into stylish, unique goblets and tumblers.

iPod Cases – made out of recycled ’45s! This gift is perfect for the music lover in your life who has an eclectic taste for old 45s. The center hole on the 45 is the exact same size as the iPod wheel.  Not your typical mass-produced case: you choose your favorite piece of vinyl and they’ll custom build it to fit your iPod. The 7-inch singles are reclaimed/reused materials and the felt padding inside is made from 40% recycled fibers.

Recycled Beer Goblets – Now these are my personal favorites. Beer Bottle Goblets have been crafted from reclaimed Sol and Grolsch bottles. How? Glass artisans carefully cut away the base, polish the edges and then bond a base to the bottom (or should that be top?) of the bottle to form a robust ‘foot’. The result is a gloriously green or crystal clear, satisfyingly sturdy goblet.

The Worlds First Bio-Recyclable USB Drive – The “EarthDrive,” comes in capacities ranging from 1GB to 8GB, is a little expensive at $20 to $100 considering how cheap flash drives aipod-case3re getting these days. But it’s all for a good cause: ATP, which has partnered with the American Forest Foundation for the project, and says they will donate some of the revenues to the planting of trees.  The EarthDrive is also waterproof, shockproof, and dustproof, so whatever extreme adventure you are participating in, it should be safe!

Solar Cell Strap – Ever been in the middle of a conversation and your phone not so polietly tells you that it is about to run out of battery and you are no where near your charger? The Solar Cell Strap from Strap-Ya features a tiny solar cell which is capable of harnessing the power of the sun to charge your handset.
