The Evolution of a Sustainable Society will be featuring EcoCharge – a free standing module that uses renewable energy to charge portable electronic devices. EcoCharge is the classic example of finding a new way to solve an existing problem. In an earlier post, I explored the idea of using renewable energy to charge cell phones.
“Imagine you’re traveling and your charger is packed away in your suitcase, you have less than a bar left on your phone, a two hour layover at the airport and at least 5 phone calls to make between now and the time your plane takes off. It’s a challenge just to find an electrical outlet to plug your laptop into, much less a space to charge your cellphone (one that includes the charger itself!).”
The EcoCharge concept has grown to in include charging services for cell phones, PDA’s and laptops – all while using renewable energy sources. Below are some samples of the brand collateral that have been developed to date.
