Green Gadgets Shown To Be Eco-Hazards


With everyone and get propecia cheap their mother jumping onto the green bandwagon, we’re bound to have a whole bunch of non-sustainable junk items pawned off as “green” by the loosest of buy cheap generic cialis standards, and a whole bunch of greenwashing. It’s something we have to buy levitra be wary of and keep a diligent eye out for posers. An art project, “Subverting the Green Aesthetic,” helps us remember this and gives us a few IDing skills.

Creator Nick Bampton is a design student in Middlesex who encourages people to take a closer look at green labels through his project of pairing green and un-green products with graphics that show there is www.ncitech.co.uk more than meets the eye when it comes to the details of so-called green products. For instance, he shows two MP3 players, one that looks like it has sustainability on canadian cialis for sale the we choice viagra doses brain, but in actually can’t be recycled, can’t be upgraded, and toxic substances are used in its manufacturing. The other MP3 player looks sleek in a non-sustainable way, but is order viagra online more durable, can be upgraded, and recycled.

We seriously dig this here at EcoGeek, since one of the greenest things to do is make what you have last as long as possible, and if you have to get rid of it, recycle. Gadgets that are made to be unfixable or disposable – especially when they’re supposedly “green” or from a “green” company – are just completely uncool and are the essence of greenwashing.

Bampton pulls the same comparison trick with a pair of only best offers cheap levitra online prescription chairs and several other objects. This kind of project is a good reminder that there are a whole slew of factors that go into evaluating the sustainability of products that claim a green lineage.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, 'cradle to grave' (and by that, I mean greenness of a product shouldn't be based on greenness of use, but of manufacture, lifetime and disposal as well)

Most of the packaging scares me off before I even buy green gadgets. If a gadget the size of it's cool cheap cialis online a mp3 player is packaged so it will fill my garbage can then I don't need it!

It's not often that I buy a green product that uses recycled packing material or material that can be recycled.

IMHO, most electronic gadgets are not needed and no prescription viagra sale labeling them as green so people buy them creates a circle of fools.

Nope, Hotwheels can't recycle, and they're made in China. Who knows what junk got put into the sky making them? Get real, Greenies, eating food makes an ecological footprint, wearing clothes does too. wanna breathe? Oh, don't forget the cheap cialis with fast delivery CO2 that you're emmitting. Better exhale on a plant so your poisonous gasses don't melt the polar bears. We'll always make a 'footprint' just as any other animal will.

@david

No, don't "feel guilty." Feeling guilty doesn't accomplish anything.

Why wouldn't you think about what you throw out? Your 'waste' is _part_ of your carbon footprint. Check out this interview from Alternet: http://www.alternet.org/story/27456/

Save the World...
written by Sustainability Savior, July 17, 2008
There is a new idea called cradle to cradle in which a item is created and then can be reuse/recycled into another product completely removing the grave aspect of an item..

Also true "green" items are certified by the government or well known environmental third parties.

Also the idiot above..yes everyone has a footprint but the key is to limiting your footprint. Learn something..here look here and fill it out.
