The Green Festival came to Washington, D.C. this past weekend and I decided to check it out in search of innovative new eco-friendly personal technology gadgets and gizmos. There were a number of products and services at the event and I decided to capture a few of them thanks to Flixwagon and I have posted them in this article. I also took some photos at the Green Festival.
Chillsters is a Chicago-based company offers reusable and freezable tumblers which could help keep the beverage of your choice cold. I talked with company President, Brian Lefkowitz in this video (below) as they look to Stop Beer Warming.
Looking to make an impression with your business cards? You might want to turn to Mr. Ellie Pooh and get your business cards made in Sri Lanka out of elephant dung. It is a bit of a messy job but it is helping to keep the elephants and people of Sri Lanka employed in a capitalistic endeavor. I chatted with Mr. Ellie Pooh's founder in this video (below).
I am a big fan of sparkling water or bubble water and so I was extremely happy to find a gadget that looks to help meet my bubble water needs and reduces plastic bottle consumption. SodaStream offers a couple of different products for creating your own bubbly beverages at home. Check out this SodaStream video demo (below).
We all consume lots of plastic shopping bags every year. Chicobag looks to help reduce that number by creating a number of reusable bag options. Check out this Chicobag video (below) where I talk with Customer Rep & Fundraiser Specialist, Barret Green about the products.
Boulder, Colorado based soap and bodycare product producer Pangea Organics has created a few different gift boxes that might make the perfect holiday gift. Check out this video where I talk with General Manager Laurence Spiewak and find out more about the Pangea Organics gift boxes. Oh and the thing I like best about these gift boxes is that the actual box itself it embedded with spruce tree seeds and can be planted as a tree when you are done with it. Brilliant!
I also got a chance to talk with few other companies but look for them soon as SOMEWHAT FRANK video episodes. Stay tuned.
