EcoProducts - An example of EcoProduct

I found this really interesting video clip featuring 2 very interesting EcoProducts!In an exhibition in Japan, there have been showcase of some very innovative EcoPoducts that you can use around the home. They are not only easy to use, they might even help you save some money, too.

One of the EcoProducts from this particular EcoProducts exhibition is the Eco Newspaper Brick Maker. This all-metal case is simply amazing. It can help you use the old newspapers that we often do not know what to do with them to make solid papier-mâché-like bricks that can be used as firewood. This eco device uses only water and recycled newspaper, and can make a cheap substitute to firewood. The amazing thing is that it is simply easy to use and this firewood substitue is also easy to store! Basically, all you need to do is to soak the newspaper in water to make pulp. Put the pulp in the eco newspaper brick maker, compress it tightly, then take out the brick. Just dry the compressed newspaper brick, it is usually dried in about 7-10 days and there you go, you have your newspaper fuel brick. I have below a video showing how this Eco Newspaper Brick Maker actually works!

Another highlight in this EcoProduct exhibition is the water saving toilet flapper. Older toilet flappers only close after all the water is flushed however this innovative flapper releases air bubbles which actually also allows water to flow into the bowl faster. After the air is released, the flapper closes immediately. This eco-flapper in fact helps to save alot of water during every flush. These two EcoProducts are indeed very eco friendly, practical and so easy to use. Everyone and anyone can use it so easily and play a part to be eco friendly!!

EcoProducts - Bamboo roll up blinds

Continuing from my previous post about bamboo, this post will talk about one form of the bamboo products: bamboo roll up blinds. I give a brief introduction to what is this product and what kind of benefits it can bring to you.

Bamboo roll up blinds are a form of blinds that can be easily folded up. They are made of durable bamboo that can provide more lonegivity to the the blinds, relative to other materials.

The greatest advantage of these blinds is their portability. As they can be set up and packed away fairly easily, you can take these blinds to either your camping, bbq or even beach trips. They can provide excellent shelter when the heat from the sun is too much to bear. They can also create more privacy by shielding you from the straying eyes when you don't want the attention.

These bamboo blinds have natural resistant to dirt and bacteria. This means that you can easily clean them by using a brush or a vaccum cleaner. For serious stain, they can be easily removed via a mild stain remover and a damp cloth. Compared to cotton blinds, these are a breeze when it comes to maintenance.

In terms of cost, they are not expensive. Prices typically range from $50-$150 depending on the quality of the bamboo and the type of design. For colored bamboo blinds that comes in either white or black, they typically cost more because of the additional coloring process. Also, bamboo types such as iron bamboo cost more as they are much more durable than normal bamboo.

I hope you enjoyed this post on bamboo roll up blinds.
