EcoProducts- Solar iPod Speaker

I know there are lots of solar gadgets for iphones and ipods but I have a personal liking for the design of this particular Ecoproduct which is a solar iPod speaker. This eco friendly innovative is chic and is just what you need when you need to bring along portable speakers for a picnic!

I was looking for interesting ecoproducts or eco gadgets and this solar speaker caught my attention. This eco ipod speaker though nothing very fancy or elaborate, it should is useful when you want to play your favourite tunes outdoors when you are having a BBQ or picnic and do not want to worry about batteries running out and having your music cut off halfway becuase someone forgot to bring some extra batteries.

This Ecoproduct is ideal for poolside use or on boats because it resists splashing water from all angles. The solar ipod speaker is housed within a rugged, rubberized and aluminum body, its two 5-watt, full-range speakers provide crisp highs, balanced mid-ranges, and resounding, bass-boosted lows. In fact, this solar ipod speaker works with most iPhones, MP3 players too.

EcoProducts- Eco Living

Instead of talking about a particular Ecoproduct, I decided to showcase a really amazing eco living design. Constraint with a small living space, people especially in some Asia cities face space constraints and these days, more and more innovations emerge to help face limitations.

This eco living is something chanced upon on Youtube, where a guy named a “Domestic Transformer”, located in the heart of Hong Kong amazing designed his living space of just 344 sq foot to a 24 room house.

I am really impressed with how much he actually put together into his tight space yet the designs are all very tastefully done in a really chic way. I would think that his designs may inspire many others to come up with many other ways to combat the small living space we have in some parts of the world. Eco living makes us think about what we have may only have but to try to live within all the boundaries and create a living space which will be more environmentally efficient.

EcoProducts- Solar Water Purifier

This is another solar Ecoproduct which I chance upon while surfing the net today. This ecoproduct, a solar water purifier called Floatron (Floatron Natural Pool Cleaner Algae-free No chemicals)which is portable and floats in the water. This eco water purifier, Floatron combines solar electric power generation with ionization. In fact this eco water purifier is suitable for use in swimming pools, ponds, spas, hot tubs and water features. This is indeed good news for many of us who may be too busy to have the time to really have the proper maintenance done for our pools, ponds etc.

How is eco water purifier works is that it introduces atomic amounts of specific minerals into water, microorganisms such as algae and bacteria cannot survive. These ions, or atoms, are completely safe and nontoxic to you, microscopic life forms cannot exist under their influence. In fact, this eco productis not like the usual chlorine that we see in swimming pools because unlike chlorine, which loses potency after only hours, the mineral ions produced by the Floatron remain effective for weeks.

The solar water purifier converts sunlight into electricity by the advanced solar panel. The harmless, low power current energizes a specially alloyed mineral electrode below waterline, causing the release of mineral ions into the surrounding water. Ionized water, referred to as mineralized water, naturally and efficiently controls microorganism growth in your pool.


Swimming in your pool even with when this solar water purifier, Floatron is still in the water is perfectly normal, and eliminates the irritations, odours, and bleaching associated with chlorine. This is quite a useful innovation with more concentration for a green environment, this eco product enables us to contribute and do our part to reduce using electricity, harmful chemical yet enable us to continue our daily lives. Kudos to the founders of this eco product, Floatron!!
