Last day today at UKAware – Ideas for greener living.

Great show! I have been there this morning and here are my favourites…

  • I’m a gadget person and the Firewinder caught my eye. It’s a British invention and powered by wind. I think this product has a lot of potential, not only in its current use but also some other applications. If I have a beach resort in the Far East, this is a nice feature.
  • One of the more busier stalls I believe is Morsbags. For a fee, you get to create your own bag…you even do the sewing.


  • If you have been opting for paperless bills, you’re helping the environment. You may notice you end up will a lot of usernames and passwords, as paperless means you access them online…separately. A novel idea on this show is NoMorePost.com – the online postal system. All your utilities, phone, credit card and bank statements all in one basket. They are still at early stages, but if you join them – it will help them convince more companies to link to their system.
  • I finally got my own Onya bag and personally met the Brother of the Australian inventor of this great bag.
