Help Make iPod Eco Friendly : Chris and Ed Need Your Help

Eco Blaster is a new concept in eco friendly design for the iPod, wherein speakers would be made of cardboard versus plastic.  This new concept for making I-Pod more environmentally friendly didn't come from Apple, but in fact two guys--Chris and his brother Ed.

Christ says,  "This is an alternative for iPod speaker docks. The problem with modern speaker docks is that they add to our already plastic saturated environment. All of the current speaker docks are going to end up in a landfill one day when Apple decides to change the USB port of it's phone."

So they came up with an idea and design for the Eco-Blaster , which is a portable speaker made out of 100% recycled cardboard. The speakers can be used with your iPhone, iPod, or any device with a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Guess what? When technology goes out the window so can your speaker dock since it will be made of cardboard that will biodegrade in a landfill unlike the plethora of plastics floating around.

Chris and Ed need your help making this dream a reality. Right now these retail for $60-$120 on the open market, but if they raise the money to put their design into motion, they can offer a $40 eco friendly alternative. As you know it takes money to get a good idea into production, and that is what they are wanting to do.

Please read the full campaign here on IndieGoGo and be a supporter! You can take advantage of the project with a $25 donation and get perks, but if not you can go to the bottom and contribute as little as $1 towards this cause, to help them reach their goal. Let's make the world a greener place!
