Mighty Wallet!

Printed with the nostalgic "Airmail / Par Avion" border that elicits travel and exotic foreign countries, the Airmail Mighty Wallet is our cornerstone wallet design. The Mighty Wallet™ is tear-resistant, water-resistant, expandable and recyclable. Made from Tyvek® (think express mail envelopes), the Mighty Wallet™ resists tearing because of thousands of interlocking plastic fibers spun in random patterns giving the wallet incredible strength.

How Much Energy Does Your TV Really Use?
By NRDC Switchboard,
10.28.09


As an energy efficiency advocate I had to know the answer to the question, "How much energy do these new LCD and plasma TVs really use?" Much to my surprise, there was virtually no public information available about their energy use or cost to operate. The only thing out there was the number on the back of the TV that indicates how much power a TV can safely draw before it becomes unsafe to operate.

Your Old Computer Could Be an Olympic Medal
by Lori Brown
10.28.09

After a two-year-long design competition, the 2010 Winter Olympic medals have been chosen, and the design isn’t the only cool part. Weighing in at a record 500-576 grams, the medals are made from recycled electronics.

The light-emitting diode (LED)
like the eco-bulb of the future. With no filament, just a microchip, it uses significantly less energy than an incandescent. But the price is high and reviews are mixed. LED illumination (in photo, center) can range from warm to what technology analyst Michael Kanellos calls "alien autopsy." The bulb casts its light in only one direction, which is fine for recessed lights and for spotlighting a specific area but could be a drawback in lamps or globes. In a few years, expect a cheaper, more versatile LED. Until then, experts recommend compact fluorescents (CFLs) for most home use — with a note of caution. Their mercury content calls for disposal as hazardous waste. —Linda Kulman

Make Paper Obsolete
Imagine curling up on the couch with the morning paper and then using the same sheet of paper to read the latest novel by your favorite author. That's one possibility of electronic paper, a flexible display that looks very much like real paper but can be reused over and over. The display contains many tiny microcapsules filled with particles that carry electric charges bonded to a steel foil. Each microcapsule has white and black particles that are associated with either a positive or negative charge. Depending on which charge is applied; the black or white particles surface displaying different patterns. In the United States alone, more than 55 million newspapers are sold each weekday.

Plant Your Roof
It's a wonder that this concept attributed to the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of Seven Wonders of the World, didn't catch on sooner in the modern world. Legend has it that the roofs, balconies, and terraces of the royal palace of Babylon were turned into gardens by the king's order to cheer up one of his wives. Roof gardens help absorb heat, reduce the carbon dioxide impact by taking up Co2 and giving off oxygen, absorb storm water, and reduce summer air conditioning usage. Ultimately, the technique could lessen the "heat island" effect that occurs in urban centers. Here, a green roof is tested at Penn State.

Make Oil from Just about Anything
Any carbon-based waste, from turkey guts to used tires, can, by adding sufficient heat and pressure, be turned into oil through a process called thermo-depolymerization, This is very similar to how nature produces oil, but with this technology, the process is expedited by millions of years to achieve the same byproduct. Proponents of this technology claim that a ton of turkey waste can cough up about 600 pounds of petroleum.

Durable, Inexpensive, Bamboo Houses Can Be Assembled Quickly For Earthquake Victims
by ScienceDaily
November 9, 2009

A USC professor on sabbatical in China has created a prototype of a sturdy, quick-to-build bamboo house designed to help the vast number of people made homeless by the May 12 Sichuan earthquake.

The Future of Poop

The water toilet is truly one of the greatest miracles of modern life, a frothy disappearing act; now you see it… now you don’t. But washing human waste away requires huge sewage treatment infrastructures in cities, and extensive home septic systems for rural dwellers. Compost toilets, though in their essence as old as human civilization, have evolved to a point of technological sophistication whereby they tackle the minutiae of composting details to create optimal conditions for recycling human waste.

Hot to Trot A dance floor that harnesses Energy

Tension and integrity are more than just what you might encounter in a day at the office. According to physics-centric artist Kenneth Snelson, the characteristics combine to form tensegrity, a principle based on strength and adaptability. Snelson uses it in reference to materials, but that mix can also come in handy in the workplace, especially in today's economy.

Thinking Beyond the Windmill
In these three planet-fixing projects,
eco-engineers draw inspiration from snakes and toothpaste
Solar panels don’t have to be eyesores. The city of Glasgow is considering the installation of giant, glowing solar "lily pads" on the River Clyde. Designed by Scottish firm ZM Architecture, the circular floats are made of steel and recycled rubber and range in diameter from 15 to 45 feet. Motorized disks covered with solar panels track the sun and angle themselves for maximum exposure. Once panels soak up enough rays, the energy is converted to AC/DC power and transferred to the city’s grid, where it will help offset Glasgow’s electrical bills.

Synthetic Tree Soaks Up Carbon 1000x
Faster Than the Real Thing
By GreenerBuildings Staff
November 9, 2009
This "tree" uses plastic leaves that capture the carbon dioxide in a chamber. The carbon dioxide is then compressed into liquid form. The tree captures the carbon without the need for direct sunlight, which means that, unlike traditional trees, the synthetic trees can be stored in enclosed places such as barns, used anywhere, and transported from one site to another regardless of conditions.
