Solar Powered Air Purifier Go Green!

I am always looking for new ways to go green in my life and in my home.  Using eco friendly smart home systems really make a big difference. From more energy efficient bulbs, to a new energy saver appliance, I've done all sorts of things to save money and feel better about my carbon footprint. 

I've even gone so far as in my business to switch some of our products to eco composible corn products so they quickly biodegrade into the universe!  From toilet paper to office products I'm pretty much going green day by day!   Making sure my business recycles is a must too. 

Now, for home or business this just in, is this handy  Portable Solar Air Purifier

Solar Air Purifier
It has a built in battery and polysilicon solar panel which soaks up the sun meaning you don't have to keep it plugged in.  The website indicates it has a quadruple (that's 4x) purifying effect and would be perfect for a home room, your craft studio, your office space, your computer room, a man cave, or your baby's room.  It is rated for an "effective range between 10 and 20 square meters" which is pretty nice area size. 

The purified is fitted with a carbon filter, which extracts impurities in the air, from pet to smoke odors. A fragrance function gives off fresh air killing the bacteria.  Many people are also buying them for their kitches or the cars ! What a great idea!   Cost to you is $61.06 for one or buy them in bulk for only $55.94 each at ChinaVasion here.

Note: This product is in stock now, and comes with a year warranty.  This was a sponsored post by the company but the content and ideas are our own.

The Maker Boards for Artists Designers and the Curious

the makerboards

Back to Basics with The Maker Boards

Here's something just starting out that you can get in on.  The Maker Boards is a a series of boards (oh how I miss those) like the old community boards.....if you don't know what I'm talking about, you must have not been here fifteen years ago. Community boards were big, and of course now with everything being so interactive finding helpful boards and threads is rare. 

So these boards, I think, will be worth their weight in gold.  Here any folks in the community of artists, makers and designers can hop on and share inspiration, ask questions, share, or get advice for new techniques to build or make whatever we're working on.

I spent some time in the music boards.

The website is

It's just starting out, but the site owners helps to put together a valuable resource for artists and makers to work together, as well as find projects they can use their skills on, and sell their work.

Note:  I signed up easy, just pick a user name and confirm on email. Blam, I was in!  So far I've found topics on welding, robotics, coding, woodworking, computers, you name it, it's in there.
