So you want to be green?
There are so many "green" and energy saving products out there today that the whole "green" movement kind of loses its pizzaz. But thank God/Allah/Buddah/your lucky stars/(insert choice of belief here) someone is still trying to break the mold. Swedish designers Loove Broms, Karin Ehrnberger, Sara Ilstedt Hjelm, Erika Lundell, and Jin Moen made a clock that really isn't a clock. Instead of telling you what time it is, it tells you how much energy you used at that point in time. The whole idea is that a person can see when they are using more energy and try to use less. The clock automatically charts your progress. The only downside? It's not in stores yet.
