This is kind of a cool idea… a post sent to me by iZen Bamboo Keyboards.
Bamboo at Your Fingertips!
There’s a new way to be eco-friendly with the iZen Bamboo Bluetooth keyboard.
Made up of 92% renewable and recyclable materials, this keyboard uses less plastic than normal keyboards, so it won’t pile up in landfills.
Until now, environmentally friendly electronics has been an oxymoron.
(According to iZen), “This is the first and only environmentally friendly Bluetooth wireless keyboard on the market.”
Bamboo is one of the greenest materials on the planet, able to survive in drought and flood conditions, contributes 35% more oxygen than an equivalent strand of trees, and actually improves the quality of the soil around it.
The bamboo that is used for these keyboards is harvested in a way that has no negative effects on the environment or the panda habitat.
Everybody will be curious about the natural look of the bamboo keyboard, and the simple and elegant design will add more Zen to your daily life.
The keyboard is coated with a wax that protects the bamboo from absorbing oils from our fingers and helps make it water resistant.
It is powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery that recharges with the same USB cord used to charge an iPad or iPhone.
While designed for tablet PCs, the iZen keyboard works with many other Bluetooth enabled devices like Macs, Androids, smart TVs, smart phones, eReaders and PCs.
iZen Bamboo was started by Robin Behrstock and Ryan Stecher in Edwards, Colorado.
They are both very eco-conscious people and realized there is a huge unfulfilled niche for environmentally friendly electronics.
The iZen keyboard and other bamboo products reduce our dependence on fossil fuels by reducing our consumption of plastic. Robin has many years of experience in manufacturing, and Ryan is a tech guru, so together they were able to make this idea a reality!
iZen bamboo keyboards will eventually be available throughout the world and in boutiques nationwide. For more information, visit www.izenbamboo.com.
