Off the Grid


Summer's finally here and you’re settling into some solo time at the beach. You grab your iPod, figuring you’ll relax to some music while working on your tan. It's the perfect way to recharge—or at least it would’ve have been if you hadn’t forgotten to do the same to your batteries! Luckily, Reware’s solar-powered beach tote provides the perfect solution: The aptly named Juice Bag, made out of reclaimed soda bottles, has waterproof solar panels that charge your electronics using simple sunshine and a car lighter adapter. Use it for a year and you'll save one pound of carbon dioxide. It's easier than, well, a day at the beach.
