And the winners are:
- #8 – Sandy W. “Why are we not doing this in the good old USA? We need to step it up people!! LOL”
- #37 – Shannon “I try to reuse wherever possible! Just a few simple things includes using styrofoam in the bottom of plant pots to help reduce water water loss. Rather than buying new clothes every season my friends and I have regular clothing swaps, which ensures that we have whole new wardrobes for nothing- with minimal waste. There are just too many ways everyday!”
- #9 – Don M. “This is awesome! Environmentally friendly and looks great too!! I would recycle trash to make home building products like composite decks and fences , roofing shingles , driveway asphalt.”
- #11 – CrissieW – “in addition to recycling… I always like reusing a good wine/champagne/funky liquor bottle as a vase. You can use it as is OR get someone to cut the top off. You can also do many other things with glass bottles such as a lamp, drinking glasses, storage..the list can go on.”
- #33 Mitchell – “There seems to be almost endless possibilities for the material you guys are mustering out of this “trash”! I was thinking that another useful thing you could produce is planters. If this material is built to protect an iPhone from anything, than i should defiantly do the job with keeping a plant in place. And whats better than having your greens protected by green? And for some reason i can’t shake the idea of making jump-ropes with this stuff. Anyways, Id love to win this case! P.S I also happen to be eating some chinese food, and making re-useable chop sticks might be something to look into! -Mitchell”

FREE GIVEAWAY FOR COOL STUFF
This cover is currently only available in Japan.
But from this post, you can get one right now, anywhere in the world, for free!
This thing to the right is called RE-caseTM. It’s from a company called Miniwiz
NO VIRGIN….Material, that is. Re-Case is 100% made from trash.
MINIWIZ Sustainable Energy Development is a Taiwanese Architecture and Design firm that thrives on one thing – TRASH.
RE-caseTM is the first of a line of products made with MINIWIZ’s pioneering waste composite material, POLLIBER, made with agricultural byproduct and post-consumer thermoplastics.
OK, that’s a mouthful. So what is RE-caseTM?
It’s a piece of trash.
That’s what it is.
100% TRASH turned into an iPhone cover.
MINIWIZ is the Taiwanese design and architecture team behind many over-achieving eco designs.
HYmini, one of MINIWIZ’s first products, is not only a palm-sized wind power generator, it also harvests solar power and manpower via HANDCRANK.
The EcoARK (a major attraction at the Taipei International Flora Expo) is a building made entirely out of POLLI-BRICKs, a MINIWIZ engineered 100% recycled PET made building material. It also utilizes solar power to provide for the energy-efficient LED lighting for the entire structure. And while other companies are happy calling 40% recycled material-made products green, MINIWIZ insists on going all the way.
So the Re-case, (and pretty much all of MiniWiz’s products) can be thought of as “re-engineered trash”
Most of their stuff is made from recycled pudding cups, car bumpers, old plastics, and locally-sourced rice husks.
This stuff is 100% Made from Trash.
If that still doesn’t have you convinced, the Re-Case is also designed to hold an RFID or PayWave card.
RE-caseTM’s design was inspired by the Japanese INRŌ. a carrying case for identity seals used in the Edo Period (A.K.A. a long time ago).
Instead of a seal, RE-caseTM holds an RFID (radio frequency ID, such as those that let you into your office or the ones you use in the London Underground).
This chip sits between the case and the user’s iPhone. Wave your phone, get into your office. It’s like magic (only not).
Re-Case is an iPhone case that you would use if you were truly thinking to make something that was sustainably designed. And since POLLIBER is an architectural grade material, your iPhone is protected from any form and level of clumsiness (except maybe the clumsiness of dropping your iPhone into the toilet or the kiddie pool. Your Re-Case will survive that, but your iPhone may not).
RE-caseTM is currently available in Japan only.
But here’s the AWESOME NEWS!
Since you are part of GreenJoyment, you have an opportunity to win a Re-Case for free!
“But I don’t have an iPhone,” you might say.
Well, sorry. Not all the kids can be cool kids. (I don’t have an iPhone either.)
But if you win (easy to do), you can give your prize to one of the cool iPhone kids.
Maybe they will let you into their “cool iPhone kids” club.
Customers interested in RE-caseTM will be able to order it online at Amazon or directly at the MINIWIZ website soon, BUT, since you’ve read this far, you can now participate in a contest to WIN a free Re-Case!
