Science and humanity are evolving at a rapid pace. Unfortunately, Earth’s resources are being used up very quickly as well. But green inventors want to prove that we can live on our planet and not destroy it. Let’s take care of our planet!
Enlighten made a list of the best inventions that will help save the environment.
12. Skateboards from abandoned fishing nets
Chilean company BUREO was founded by 3 friends. They manufacture “Skateboards for Plastic-Free Oceans” from secondary raw materials: fishing nets collected near the Chilean coast. They also make sunglasses from fishing nets, cotton T-shirts, and other eco-friendly goods. In the first photo, we can see a man surrounded by plastic garbage caught from the sea. Let’s think before throwing garbage into the water!

9. Ocean cleaner
The Seabin Project was founded by 2 Australian surfers, and the V5 Seabin was designed to clean the oceans. Seabin collects the garbage and works like a filter for the water. It can be installed in the water of ports, marinas, or any other water.
8. Eco-friendly furniture
German company MANUFRACT® crafts furniture from broken pieces of wood, using an eco-resin to fix the final shape.
Now there are a lot of handcrafters creating similar chairs and tables. They heal the wood and present us with really stylish and unusual accessories.
7. Low-energy home
The Ecocapsule is a low-energy compact house for 2 adults. It is powered by a wind turbine and rooftop solar panels, so you don’t need to resupply or recharge.
6. Plastic/not plastic
Agar is not only food anymore. Agar plasticity is a project that explores agar as an alternative to synthetic plastics. It turns out that agar can be an eco-friendly packaging material.
5. Water-saving device
The Altered:Nozzle is a device that installs into your existing tap. It helps you consume 98% less water while you are washing your hands or brushing your teeth.
4. Organic waste recycling system
Homebiogas is a system for recycling food and other organic waste. In addition, it generates clean energy. Homebiogas needs only sunlight and food waste to produce 2 hours of gas.
3. Smart bag
PaqSule is a smart bag with a self-refreshing, deodorizing, and sanitizing system. Impressive, right? You can activate the special chemical-free Fresh Cycle by pushing a button on the bag or with your smartphone. With PaqSule, you can keep your bag and the sneakers or clothes inside it fresh and free of germs.
2. Water you can eat
Ooho is a water bottle created out of 100% plants and seaweed. It can be colored and flavored. No need for plastic water bottles anymore!
1. Smart trash bin
TetraBIN is a garbage can with an interactive surface that awards users with prize points for every item thrown in it. The whole internal surface of the tank is equipped with motion sensors. When garbage enters the bin, a chicken leg is displayed on the outer panel, which flies directly into the mouth of a hungry dog. The purpose of the development is to motivate people to throw garbage into trash bins.
