What’s better than a gadget that eliminates mundane tasks? Ecopod makes sorting recyclables efficient and effortless with their household recycling center. Designed in partnership with BMW DesignWorksUSA, Ecopod’s E1 series houses the usual separate compartments for your recyclables, along with a compactor which takes all the air out of your plastic bottles and aluminum cans. With a touch of a foot pedal, your plastic and aluminum reduce instantly to space-saving scale. Ecopod will make its big debut during the 2006 Holiday season.
