Greening Your Beloved Nano

23Oct06

There’s been much Sturm und Drang (thanks Tim Gunn) over Greenpeace’s campaign to “green” Apple’s iproducts. As a loyal Apple customer since 1986 (yes, that’s right folks! I was happily inculcated as a high school junior with that first SE-30–remember those little things?), so I was disheartened to hear alleged reports that they haven’t committed to removing toxic PVCs (aka “Pretty Vile Chemicals”) from their otherwise impeccably designed computers and gadgets.

That said, many of us cherish our iPods, iShuffles, and those sleek and sexy Nanos. At least you can wrap your Nano in something green…


…or ruby, orange or aqua…

The Fab Factor: These Jimi Cases designed by Californian Mike O’Neill are made from 100% recycled plastics and are fully recyclable when you’ve moved on to the next “it” gadget. They are made in the USA (Pittsfield, MA to be exact). Plus Mike O’Neill is also a member of 1% for the Planet.

Available at Zanisa and Branch Home. Maybe Apple will take its cue from the accessory companies who love them.

Note: Want to see “green” Apples? Feel free to join Greenpeace’s tough love campaign to encourage Apple to make their products lean and green.

    I’d like to know if you have the coordinates for Mike O’Neil. I have a boutique and would like to sell the Ipod recycled case.

    Hmm…I’m afraid I don’t. Did you try Googling him along with California and Jimi Case?

    Anyone else know?
