A Green Light at the End of the Tunnel




This was, by far, my favorite booth design at CES. It's a tough show to think about sustainability. People give away stuffed animals, plastic bags, reusable tote bags (even reusable is just more "stuff") and other swag. We go through endless amounts of carry out containers and who knows what an insane carbon footprint is created getting people and exhibits all in one place.

And then, I came across this wonderful booth by MINIWIZ built of cardboard and water bottles. Their designs are sustainable and use solar energy. It is beautiful in its simplicity.

The video on their home page beautifully captures their mission with nary a word. Their site shows off innovative personal products, service design (green burial anyone?) and even amazing sustainable architecture.

Thank you, MINIWIZ, for reminding us that not all technology has to be battery powered and end in a landfill.
