Some of you may already be aware that today is the release of the new Bond film ‘Spectre’! Here at Sustainable DMU we are excited to see what gadgets Mr. Bond will be sporting, but something we’re keeping a look out for is how they’re powered and how he uses them, considering his history with his new toys we’d like to see a bit more reuse or recycling!
If you’re looking for some of your own checkout some of these gadgets from the ethical superstore: http://www.ethicalsuperstore.com/ethical-gifts/eco-gadget-gurus/?page=1&limit=18&sortby=most_popular& these are a bit pricey, however ,so if you feel like getting crafty you can learn how to make your own here: http://www.instructables.com/howto/eco+gadgets/
Of course we’re all guilty for getting our 5 second fix and then getting bored with something at some point in our lives, below you can find some other uses for household items (not quite 007 but still nifty) http://www.goodhousekeeping.com/home/organizing/tips/g262/double-duty-household-items/?slide=55
Get geared up like Bond and show us your best 007 pose using either household items for other stuff, your latest eco gadgets or the upcycled gadgets you made earlier. Post up your pictures to our Facebook or Twitter pages. Links to the right of the page.
