Handmade from tightly coiled, recycled magazine strips, these Imax Alaina Recycled Magazine Baskets will be an attractive, unique and useful addition to any home, and a great way to show off just how stylish green living can be.
They stand 13 to 14″ high and weigh 2.2 pounds each, but more than that, they represent a long-term use for a mass produced product that until the recent past has been routinely buried or burned with little regard for the environment. Now, magazines can have a second life, through a variety of different recycling processes. Here, discarded magazines that have been cut into strips are woven into attractive, stylish, and colorful baskets that can be placed around the home, garden, office, or business, purely as decor, or as receptacles for a variety of items, small and large – green living at its contemporary best!
A couple of years ago, the number of automobiles in the world surpassed one billion, and the number grows daily. Every car, those on the road today, those that drove the world’s highways in the past, and those that will leave production lines today, tomorrow, and each day in the future, uses rubber tires. Old tires are routinely buried, burned, or piled up as reminders of our wasteful society. But it does not have to be that way. Used rubber tires can be recycled, and this Recycled Tire Planter/Storage Bin is a prize example.
This stylish, handcrafted container from Au Lac Designs can be used as a planter on a porch, patio, or garden (note it is not watertight), or as an attractive storage bin.

This power source produces much higher power levels and have longer life spans than the other models discussed.
Here is a description of the development of one type of water-powered batters, featuring Japanese inventor Susume Suzuki:
