The use of solar energy is the most popular way in keeping the environment safe making it more and more designers are into designing concepts that make use of solar energy like Mitch Cook who is responsible for the Project Solar House. As the name suggests, the Project Solar House has a façade of solar panels and are the ones responsible in collecting solar energy for the house’s electricity need.

Some nations enjoy their abundant water, some nations are being threatened their survival by water shortage. Some African girls have a long trek to get water every day, while some people only use their fingers to turn the tap on. Do you think it is unfair? If so, let us put up with a little of labor to get water from now. You can see this sink does not have any lever, but a bicycle pedal. The rule is simple. You work a pedal, and then you can get water.
All we know about shoes is that, these are the one responsible in protecting our feet from possible harm as we walk or run. However, the Hanguenda is different from any other shoes that we know.

Mimics the looks of your shoes or wooden shoe pattern, the Hanguenado also have the shoelaces, which serves as the lights’ hanging aid. Aside from being solar powered, these lamps are also built using locally sourced wood, waterbased adhesives, finished with waterbased finish and uses LED lighting technology.

Living the green life can be boring especially if we only know the old-fashioned way and classic designs. It is so nice to see designs that bring color to our sustainable living like the eco-bin.

In this way, segregating waste will be fun and excitingly easy. In addition to the colors, you can also see images representing the type of waste on top of each bin, which adds up to the beauty of the bin.

Well, designer Nathan Hintz have a wind powered vehicle concept called WindJet. As the name suggests, the bright yellow super green car concept will use low drag turbines for its batteries to be recharged while in motion. This can be an amazing concept when it comes to fuel efficiency. However, I find its rear appearance pretty disturbing and maybe weird. Overall, the car concept looks great and its fuel efficient. Great enough for a polluted world we have today.

This head turning car concept is eco-friendly as well, as it is to be powered by Lithium-ion batteries. This only means that, the Shift Car Concept will be producing zero carbon emission, thus zero harm for the environment. For sure many will be waiting for the production of this car concept because it does not look great on the road, driving this car would be less guilt to the environment as well.
Off-road driving is now becoming a popular hobby to many of the hobbyist worldwide. This only means that more and more carbon footprints are being contributed to our environment, which obviously will harm mother earth and us in the near future. However, the CD2 Grasshopper will soon eliminate this negative effect off-road car can create. Designed by industrial designer Vil Tsimenzin, the CD2 Grasshopper is an off and on-road vehicle that runs using an electric motor. The motor is powered by a rechargeable battery, which on the other hand can be recharged either from a 110V outlet or through a solar or thermal collecting pipe system. Users will definitely have an enjoyable ride as it hit the top speed of 40-45 mph in an approximately 1.25 hours of non-stop driving in a single charge. One more exciting feature that the CD2 grasshopper has and which I am sure that you will agree is its ability to change its color as a power status indicator.
