Comments Off on 5 eco friendly home products made using recycled materials

Leka Ram: Recycled home product These home products are made out of recycled material. The concept of ‘green’ is catching up like fire all around the globe. People are trying to identify green ways and incorporate them into each and every aspect of life. Using green products means that you are contributing in keeping the environment pollution free and safe. It also means that you are preserving energy and using all resources efficiently. If you still have not ventured into the concept, here are some home products to choose from so that you can do your bit in making the earth a greener place to live. Given below are 5 Eco-friendly home products made using recycled materials. 1. Biodegradable vacuum cleaner made from recycled cardboard Vaccum cleaner The vac is made up of sustainable material, that is a recycled cardboard taken from a shipping box. Cardboard can be easily recycled and decomposed. So it is one of the greenest materials around for making green products from trendy furniture to various other home appliances. The cardboard has been successfully recycled and used for making a vacuum cleaner. It was made by Jake Tyler, a student from the Loughborough University. The vacuum cleaner is called Vax EV. The cardboard used for making the cleaner comes from the recycled cardboard of a shipping box. Apart from the case, the internal parts are also made of recycled materials such as nylon plastic. The creator believes that his cleaner is similar to the traditional cleaner but comes with an inexpensive price tag. Since the product is made of cardboard you can decorate it according to your wish using felt pens. If there is damage in the parts of the Vax, you can replace them very quickly. 2. Honeycomb-inspired lamp Honeycomb lamp The Olive Tree Light by industrial designer Georgi Porgy combines copper rings in a honeycomb structure to create a unique lighting effect. Lighting fixtures are one of the popular products made from recycled materials. There are various kinds of lamps made from zip ties to drinking straws. Such products help the people to recycle waste and use them for making different products and at the same time protect the environment.

The lamp is illuminated with the help of LED bulb that requires very little energy for lighting. So you will be saving a lot of energy also by using this honey comb lamp. 3. Minarc Recycled Rubber Tire sinks Minarc Sinks are made from recycled rubber tires Recycled rubber tires are used for making various green products. One of the latest additions to the list is the rubber tire sinks. Many tires usually end up in the landfills causing more and more pollution to the environment. The best way to stop such kind of pollution is to recycle such products and use them for other purposes. The recycled car tires have been used by the Santa Monica based designer of Minarc studio to transform them into a stunning bathroom sink. The tires are melted down first so that the metal fibers present provide a lot of resistance to the sheet formed. The sheets are about 1/8 inch thick and easy to clean. They can be easily stretched over any shape to give the shape you want. This resulted in the formation of stylish, super light and environment friendly sinks. The sinks are 5 feet long and 36 inches wide with double basins. 4.
