There’s nothing quite like renewable energy on-the-go, and Voltaic  makes solar power a stylish accessory with a hot lineup of solar-powered bags to charge your mobile gadgets. We’ve been impressed with Voltaic’s products from the get go, and with their ongoing efforts to amp up the sustainability factor in their bags like boosting the power and going to 100% post-consumer recycled PET plastic based fabrics . In this giveaway we’re giving one lucky reader a brand new Converter  backpack. The Converter is a streamlined bag perfect for commuting and short trips, and with 4 Watts of power, it provides all you need to charge all your handheld electronics.

Behance is one of our favorite sites on the web. It’s a fantastic forum for creatives from all walks to share their works — you can’t visit without walking away with a little bit of inspiration. The company recently launched their Action Method  system, a suite of products that synch up the web, your iPad, your mobile and good old-fashioned paper. Action’s paper products are beautifully designed and employ recycled paper. The winner of this awesome bundle will also receive a year’s subscription to Behance’s ProSite , where they can begin to build the portfolio and synch it up with Behance’s extensive network. Behance is also throwing in a copy of “Making Ideas Happen ” authored by founder Scott Belsky.

These vibrant Moleskine-like ecosystem  notebooks and journals  are beautiful and simplistic, with the added bonus that they use 100% recycled paper! They’re clearly a smarter choice than notebooks that are made from new paper – in fact, ecosystem  has already saved (as of 2009) 3,046 full-grown trees, 1,299,751 gallons of water and 283,974 pounds of greenhouse gases. The winner of our Back to School Green Prize Package will receive 7 of these notebooks in various colors and sizes!

Characterized by their “naked” natural-colored products , Naked Binder  believes that long life, strength, sustainability and beauty go hand-in-hand in the fight against a disposable society. Everything they use to manufacture and ship their products is either recycled or recyclable (mostly both). Naked is giving our lucky winner one Naked Binder, one Classic Binder, one Project Binder, tabs and folders.

Headquartered in the beautiful Pacific Northwest United States, TreeSmart ’s pencils made from 100% recycled newspaper and are completely tree free. TreeSmart has developed a process that essentially “turns the paper back into wood” making the pencils just as hard and solid as wood. The barrels of these pencils are tightly rolled from torn strips of “yesterday’s news” and are as smooth and consistent as your traditional #2. The pencils also sharpen easily, but best of all remind us about the possibilities of recycling.
