Gear Up explore The Coolest Tools for Work and Play GOING GREEN New technologies and forward thinking are creating ★ a smart new wave of eco-friendly products By Lynn Coulter Fluid Time If your science class ever did an experiment to learn how water conducts electricity, you'll understand how Bedol's water clock runs without batteries or a cord. Just pour tap water into the spout, and a natural chemical reaction occurs due to the metallic plates in its reservoir. Ions in the water are channeled into a current that keeps accurate time for up to 12 weeks. A built-in memory chip means you won't have to reset the clock when you change the water. Need a wake-up call? Choose the Squirt Alarm model (no, it doesn't really squirt). The clock is made of non-PVC recyclable plastic. $16-$39 Step Lightly Nike goes the extra step to reduce your footprint on the planet with its Flyknit Lunar2 atheltic shoe. Inspired by runners who wanted a lightweight shoe but with unprecedented strength and support, the Lunar2 is constructed on a proprietary knitting machine. Polyester yarn fed into the machine creates a featherweight, virtually seamless upper, leaving little to no manufacturing waste. Special Flywire cables built into the upper provide added support, while responsive foam cushioning puts a flexible, fluid "ride" in your stride. These custom-made shoes are delivered in four weeks or less. Available in regular or wide, for men and women. $160 Get Scrappy Apple cores and potato peelings may be garbage to you, but they're black gold to your flowers and vegetables. And even though composted organic matter doesn't smell or look like appealing decor, the GreenCycler can help. It's more than a countertop bin: Its stainlesssteel blades shred scraps for composting results up to ten times faster than normal. And its rechargeable filter helps control odors. $100 and up Nike's Flyknit Lunar2 running shoe for men MARCH 2014 43
