Cool Green Tech at West Coast Green


I really enjoyed West Coast Green.  After spending several hours helping with the Innovation Pipeline, promoting the conference through our website, and flying down to participate as a second-year media sponsor, I’m certainly happy I was able to hang out on the exhibit floor and view the Harbinger house.  I met some very nice people and left with the feeling that the best and brightest are hard at work trying to market products that can help everyone live healthy, sustainable, and comfortable lives.  Although you may have seen a few of these companies previously, they all caught my eye.  They’re all very cool. 

  • Element Four WaterMill – a revolutionary air-to-water generator that will be available starting in February 2009. 


  • Harvest Home Furniture – rustic but modern furniture handcrafted from reclaimed timber.  Their set up was absolutely beautiful. 


  • Perfect Flush by Brondell – this cool little retrofit can be added to your toilet to give it dual-flush functionality and save water.  The Perfect Flush kit comes with everything you need to install it easily in no time. 


  • Solar Cynergy LED Pavers – we’ve featured this product previously and think solar-powered LED pavers are pretty cool. 



  • RainTube – this simple, economical gutter protection system is used to protect from cloggage while collecting rainwater. 


  • Eagle Solar – another product we’ve talked about before, this company features a ton of different roof tile styles with integrated solar for your home. 




  • ELT Easy Green Living Wall System – this beautiful living wall system was filled with succulents and just was cool to look at.  Several of these formed the backdrop to the Al Gore speech that I didn’t finish seeing.

    Santa Ana, CA—September 1, 2008—In an effort to support the California Department of Conservation, Eco Precast™ has announced the manufacture of Urbanslabs™ sustainable cement-based slabs now available for a variety of residential, commercial and hospitality surface applications. Crafted by hand, Urbanslabs™ consist of 50% recycled, post-consumer glass containers such as beer, wine and liquor bottles that are commonly sent to landfill and 10% recycled post industrial waste. This patent pending process contains no resinous binders.

    “Eco Precast is taking a truly innovative look at the use of waste as a resource,” said architect Jorden Segraves, chair of the United States Green Building Council’s Pacific Regional and Orange County chapters. “Urbanslabs™ represent a completely new use for discarded glass. The company is effectively replacing a farmed resource with a reclaimed or “found” resource that fills a unique niche in the industry and product market.”

    Urbanslabs™ are manufactured using a proprietary cement matrix. Light weight 3/4” (2cm) and 1¼” (3cm) Urbanslabs™ are made possible by an advanced mix design and unique manufacturing process.

    Urbanslabs™ can be cut, bull-nosed, seamed and polished just like the fabrication of natural stone slabs such as granite. Urbanslabs™ can be utilized for a wide array of surface uses including countertops, bathroom vanities, shower panels, floor tiles, backsplash tiles, bathroom stall dividers, wall clad panels, outdoor living surfaces and for furniture tops.

    Available in seven colors, Urbanslabs™ coordinate with a variety of décor themes. Eco Precast unique surface-polishing process exposes the glass and provides excellent scratch resistance, while offering a refreshing new look to the industry. A Zero VOC sealer is applied to the Urbanslabs™ at time of manufacture to provide outstanding protection from stains.

    Urbanslabs™ offer an economical investment compared to poured-in-place and pre-cast concrete countertops, which costs hundreds of dollars per square foot installed.

    Urbanslabs™ are available in the following dimensions, 8’ X 3’ X ¾” (2cm) and 10’ X 5’ 6” X 1¼” (3cm). Custom sizes, colors and finishes can be created upon request.

    Thanks for sharing all those great eco-friendly ideas. I loved the Harvest Home Furniture collection, I’m always on the lookout for “non-modern” styling for my apartment. And the Pefect Flush – how great for an apartment, my toilet’s old and could use that. Can’t wait until they become available to buy.
