Going green is a big undertaking and a huge task. It’s not something that we can easily accomplish on our own and we should certainly take all the help we can get when it comes to reducing our carbon footprint and taking better care of the planet.
And that doesn’t just mean help from other people – it also means help from the best gadgets and tools out there that can aid us in saving energy and doing more with less. There’s big money to be made in the world of ‘going green’ so that means there are plenty of these kinds of gadgets out there to choose from. Here we will look at some of the best green products so that you know where to start.
Solar Charger: The solar chargers you can now get to power most phones and some laptops are a brilliant way to save a huge amount of energy on a daily basis – particularly if you’re someone who uses a lot of technology. At the same time though, like all the top green products, this is also something that has a genuine and very practical use, as well as something that looks impressive meaning it can be used to convince other people to follow suit and go green too.
Insulation: Maybe not what you had in mind, but ‘insulation’ for your walls and your roof is no doubt a ‘product’ and certainly a very green one. If you want to keep your home warm and avoid wasting your energy then using insulation is one of the very best ways to do so. Double glazing is also a rather important ‘green product’. These are some of the top products in terms of the fact that we now rely on them for our day to day living – in many ways these were some of the first green products to achieve mainstream use.
AllSun Trackers: Of course a little bit better than a phone charger would be a solar panel that powered multiple items in your home or business, and of course these are rather big business too. Obviously though not all solar panels are made equal, and the AllSun Trackers are one of the best options in terms of performance and efficiency because they use GPS tracking to follow the movement of the sun. They’re free standing too meaning they look quite cool rather than making your house look like it’s made from tin foil.
The Kindle: The Kindlle is an incredibly smart green product that is not only very energy efficient thanks to its use of e-ink (meaning that it requires no power to stay on), but which is spearheading the movement of the publishing industry away from printing on paper – which can only be a good thing for the rain forests and trees in general.
Energy Saving Lightbulbs: Sometimes the simple things are the best, and these little energy savers are one of the quickest and simplest ways to save energy in your home. They’re also well marketed meaning that everyone knows what they are, which has generally had a great impact on the cause.
The Roadster: The Roadster is a car from Tesla Motors that makes the dream of electric powered cars a reality by making them more practical and desirable. It’s a bold and risky venture for the company, but one that has received a lot of good publicity and which potentially could one day change the way we fuel our vehicles. The new network of power stations they plan on introducing over the next few years will also help bring that closer to a reality.
