The California Institute of Technology has introduced the prototype for a very appealing new solar panel. These panels are more energy efficient and take up much less space. Instead of the bulky black photovoltaic panels we have a flexible hair-like extension that will hopefully make its appearance in the solar powered world. While only a few square centimeters of this nanowire-based solar power have been created, the Caltech team is creating larger panels to be tested.

O'BONanza Pencils

 

O’BON LLC is a company based in the United States focused on creating eco-friendly products such as office and school supplies by using sustainable products. What makes O’BON different from all the other eco-friendly stationary companies out there is just that, there isn’t a company like it that offers what O’BON offers. On top of manufacturing pencils made from recycled newspapers, O’BON carries a line of stationary products, binders, folders, notebooks, and colored pencils that make the regular wood pencils and stationary look old fashioned, outdated and just plain boring.

The simplest, littlest of things can sometimes make all the difference in the world. What if… one day we stopped cutting down trees and destroying forests for our consumption. And instead, we REUSE what we already have.


It starts with something we use often in our daily lives – a pencil. How many trees have been cut down to manufacture wooden pencils? The answer – A LOT. How many trees have been cut down to make newspapers? The answer – once again, A LOT. Now wouldn’t it be a good idea to cut some corners here, if it were to save Mother Nature an entire pine forest? The answer – YES!

O’BON has now revolutionized paper. Once again, O’BON has made it clear that no tree will ever be harmed in the making of an O’BON product. Instead of cutting down trees to produce paper or using unbleached “recycled” paper (yea, that light brown ugly grainy paper), O’BON actually uses sugarcane fibers that are leftover from farmers who extract the juice from the sugarcane for resale. These leftover fibers are then processed and made into white paper, without the use of bleach, since the sugarcane fibers are naturally white.
