In the era of the environmentalist, there’s an eco-friendly version of almost everything; clothing, homewares, healthy and beauty products, iPhone cases and even cars. Here at iPhonefixed, we’re keen to do our bit, so we like to keep an eye out for any environmentally friendly iPhone accessories that might pop up. So when we stumbled across the Ginkgo Solar Tree, we decided we absolutely had to share the details.
Inspired by the leaf shape and function of the ginkgo plant, the Solar Tree is an innovative and eco-friendly charger, designed to power your iPhone to its full capacity while limiting the impact on the environment. The solar panels have been based around the shape of the ginkgo leaf, but have been cleverly made in such a way that they can be folded away during storage – meaning that the packaging used is minimal. The materials used to create the Ginkgo Solar Tree have been kept to a high eco-friendly standard; the panels are made from a unique resound material, which is a combination of bio-based material ad PC, while the trunk is made from highly renewable bamboo.
The Solar Tree works in a simple way; plug your iPhone into the USB post located on the back of the Ginkgo, plug the other end into your phone and watch it charge without having a negative effect on the planet. It’s fast as well; two hours can leave your iPhone battery completely full – what’s not to love?
