Reducing our carbon footprint has become increasingly important. Global warming is already posing a big threat to mankind and our reckless behaviour towards the environment is clearly showing. Here are a few gadgets that you could help you on the way to a greener life:
D-Link’s 8-port Switch
The DGS-2208 uses eco-friendly technology to help you reduce power consumption you may not realize you’re using. The D-Link automatically detects idle ports on your computer equipment and reduces the power usage, saving energy and money.
This device is particularly great for offices (public and home) where computers are used for over eight hours a day. In some situations, the D-Link has been able to save up to 40% of the power used in these conditions.
Installation is easy and no configuration is required.
Wind Powered Battery Charger
The HYmini, a hybrid universal charger, captures renewable wind and solar power and combines it with wall plug power to charge most 5V gadgets.
A breeze over 9 mph will get the battery charging in just 20-40 minutes. This charger is great for cell phones, mp3 players, iPods, and cameras.
Bio-Recyclable USB Drive
Designed with recycled and biodegradable material, the ATP EarthDrive is also shockproof, waterproof, and dust-proof, making it a highly durable USB drive.
Its capacities range from 1GB to 8GB, and security software is built in for password protection.
ATP has partnered with the American Forest Foundation and donates a share of their revenues to planting trees.
