Green Gadgets That Help Save the Planet and Save You Money

This segment from the Today Show demonstrates a number of cool green gadgets. You may be familiar with the power strip that turns off peripherals when you turn off your computer. It costs about $40 and can save you $100 a year in electricity costs. Now there are also solar chargers for cell phones and other small devices, and even a little fan blade that you put on your shoulder when you ride your bike that charges your devices.

To save more energy you can get a dual flush toilet. It has a little hand basin on top of the tank. After you wash your hands, the gray water flows into the tank where it is ready for the next flush.

On page 2 you’ll see a solar powered lamp that has an unusual story.

Love these segments but I sure wish they would not rush the presenters and spend a few extra minutes so we can get all the information we need. (They should take a minute or two away from some of those segments on the celebrity gossip or crap like that!)
