Exciting eco-friendly products on the market

Wherever you are in the world, you’ve probably seen or heard about the effects of global warming. For Australians, there has been a marked increase in the number of wildfires and other climate related disasters over the last decade.

Our growing awareness of what is essentially the biggest challenge we’ve ever faced as a species continues to drive innovation. There are a hundred ways to turn your home into a clean and green machine. So, if you love your planet, it’s time to get tough on wasted energy.

Keep reading to learn more about the most exciting eco-friendly products on the market.

Solar Panels
It makes sense to start with solar power because it is the most widely available of all the green technologies. For instance, solar panels from AGL don’t even demand upfront costs. Customers have the panels installed on their roofs, but they can choose to spread payment over two or five years.

This makes it easier to offset the cost of the installation with the money saved from conserved electric. So, as you are saving cash, you can be using it to settle the bill. Once the solar panels have been paid for in full, any cash you make is yours to keep. It’s also worth noting that the Australian government offers a subsidy on solar installations.

Edible Water Bottles
Now, this next product has the potential to change the world. The amount of plastic in landfills has spiralled out of control over the last twenty years. As the vast majority of plastic bottles are not biodegradable, they take up a staggering amount of space. Many go on to pollute rivers and seas, where they cause damage to animal life.

To solve the problem, Skipping Rocks Lab invented an entirely edible container for liquids. This translucent orb is made out of seaweed, so it is safe to eat and it also breaks down naturally if discarded. Initial tests have astounded manufacturers, so expect to see this futuristic product on the shelves very soon.

Precious Plastic
Plastic waste is a major issue right now, so it’s no surprise to see lots of entrepreneurs trying to tackle it with clever products. Precious Plastic is a little different to the edible water bottle, but it works with much the same principles. It is designed to empower consumers and give them the ability to recycle their own waste.

It is a set of automated machines which shred, melt, mould, and reform unwanted plastic. The idea is that you place a plastic bottle, say, or a food tray into the system. The machines then melt it down and turn it into something useful like a light switch, bottle cap, drawer hook, or any other handy household item.

Air Purifying Walls
While many of the plastic based inventions are yet to hit the commercial market, air purifying walls have already proved to be hugely popular with businesses. This is because they’re very easy to create and maintain. Plus, they actually add to the aesthetic, mood, and comfort of the work environment.

The air purifying wall is a simple concept. Leafy, verdant plants and grasses are spread and grown across entire walls in office blocks and community buildings. It is a fantastic way to clean the air, remove allergens, and make people feel good. We know that employees work more productively in the presence of living things, so there’s really no downside to this one.

What You Can Do To Support The Environment
The good news is that there’s plenty of changes you can make to lower your carbon footprint and work alongside natural resources. The best has to be installing solar panels because environmental experts consider this technology to be the future of eco-friendly living.

There’s also the fact that solar panels save homeowners hundreds of dollars in conserved electric every year. So, you’re not expected to be entirely altruistic here. Your family benefits directly from investment in solar technology, because the panels are a great way to make money. There are many things you can do to support the environment; so take the plunge and start saving our planet today.
