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. In addition, the solar panels give a solid look to the house giving it a unique and sturdy look as compared to those that has bricks, tiles, or glass facades, which are already commonly used by many.

Celebrating Christmas in a sustainable way is easy to achieve with the recycled Christmas card by Johnson Banks. Hailed as the winner during the design week awards 2009, aside from a sustainable Christmas card, Johnson Banks also included in the range spare magazines that are ram-punched into Christmas trees and old posters that are used to make an envelope. In this way, you don’t need to throw your old newspapers and posters, thus less landfill and less carbon emission because they don’t need to manufacture new products intended for your Christmas cards for distribution to your friends or for sale.

We all know that solar power is a great way to save on energy and minimize green house gases. However, this could cost a lot that an average household may find it hard to achieve. Well, not anymore today, because designer Leigh Ryan has created the Ravi portable solar generator that is designed for small electronic appliances. Designed like a flower, one will open up the petals to reveal the solar panels and start collecting energy and stores it in a removable battery packed. When the battery is fully charged the petals will close and users can now remove the battery pack and charge their electronic products via 2 USB outputs. With the presence of this device, it will be achievable already for the average people collect solar energy and minimize green house gases.
