What do you love most about your favorite gadget? It could be the amazing technology or the sleek design. But chances are, the aspect you really love is that you can take it anywhere. We are a culture that rejects cords in favor of complete mobility.
The only downside to portable gadgets is that many are only designed for a single user. If you want to share a movie with your neighbor on a long plane ride or a favorite song with a group of friends at the beach, you’re gonna need help. That’s why we’re so excited about LA-based eco-made’s first product: an iPhone speaker that’s made from 100 percent environmentally-friendly materials and can be carried in your back pocket.
With a design that conjures up memories of old-timey gramophones, the eco-amp comes as a single, flat piece and is assembled by the user. True to its name, the eco-amp is made from “FSC Certified 100% Post Consumer” paper and produced in Los Angeles, CA. As this review points out, the amp’s flat design means if you want to throw it in your backpack without crushing it, you can just unfold it, and reassemble it when you get where you’re going.
In addition to being made from paper, the eco-amp is Green Seal certified, made with 100% green energy, and made “Carbon Neutral Plus.” It also comes in a package that’s made of FSC approved paper and printed with soy-based ink. Best of all, it only costs $7.99 for two amps, so if someone accidentally tears or steps on it, the loss is minimal.
