The Koteli Bag  is a colorful, durable, foldable reusable bag that is helping our oceans stay free of plastic debris. Conservation and wildlife protection organization SEE-Turtles says 6 of the 7 species of sea turtles are endangered today. Sea turtles think that floating plastic bags are jellyfish and consume them, choking and dying of poison. To offset this, Koteli Bag users keep 3-4 plastic bags out of the ocean with each use of the Koteli Bag, plus Koteli donates 10 percent of all online sales to SEE-Turtles and the Billion Baby Turtles Campaign . Can you fit a great cause and up to 65 pounds of stuff into your reusable bag? + Koteli Bag The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ?

Comments Off on California Engineering Students Develop Device that Reduces Lawnmower Emissions

A team of students from the University of California’s Riverside Bourns College of Engineering recently developed a simple-yet-brilliant device that can make lawnmowers greener. The team’s NOx-Out system is an innovative device that reduces emissions, noise, and the smell of gasoline from lawnmowers. The 6-inch-long device includes a filter, a glass jar that holds two ounces of urea solution, and a lawnmower muffler, and it works by capturing particulate matter in a glass quartz filter and then spraying an ultra-fine solution into the exhaust system. The team recently won first place at the  WERC: A Consortium for Environmental Education and Technology Development Competition in Las Cruces for the device. + NOx-Out The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
