Sustainable Keyboards - Bamboo Is The New Plastic!

Well I never.

A keyboard made from 92% bamboo - chosen because it is easily grown with less water, and easily recycled.

What's more, it's wireless (bluetooth), has it's own lithium-ion rechargeable battery, and is the same price as an Apple wireless keyboard of similar dimensions! Everyone says Apple uses the best design lines... but this just beautiful. It truly feels like nature meets technology and nature won. Waxed bamboo feels great on your fingertips too.

Read the Sustainable Wireless Keyboard Press Release, or buy the Bamboo Keyboard directly. They have a few other natural eco-friendly products available too, like an iPhone cover (albeit a bit pricey) and iPad/screen holders.

What I really thought was worth mentioning about this product and manufacturer, is that they seriously show their commitment to the environment by offering to recycle your keyboard at any time if you send it back to them, and they will give you a $10 voucher in return! Clever. And sustainable.

I think it's also great that they include a free iPhone recharge cable with the keyboard, so you can recharge it's onboard battery from a USB port. That makes it better to me than my Apple wireless keyboard, since it requires rechargeable AA batteries which require a separate charger. And I'm sure the extra iPhone USB cable will be useful to many smartphone users who are as frustrated as I was when the original cable  broke!
