Motion-Activated Outside Light


New solar products are popping up more often these days and we found the Frostfire LED Outdoor Light that can be used for a garage, shed or as security. With easy installation, it has a 0.6W panel that charges during the day. At a size of 16 x 9 x 4cm, it is motion-activated and turns off 30 seconds after the movement stops.

Solar Impulse To Fly 'Round the World

Bertrand Piccard and Andre Borschberg showed up on a recent episode of "60 Minutes", explaining to Bob Simon how they plan to make a voyage with their Solar Impulse around the world without using any fuel this spring. They have already taken test flights during the night and experienced both cold and darkness. Pilots Piccard (no relation to Jean Luc) and Borschberg plan to spend 20 days and nights to make the trek, storing energy in the day to get them through the nights. Check out the episode as the training, performance and mindsets of the two is fascinating viewing at the very least.

Help Restore the Planet with A Lot to Say


This holiday season, give back as well as just giving. A Lot to Say is a brand that is helping the planet. For each product you buy, 25 to 100% of the proceeds go to causes such as Stand Up to Cancer, Animal Rescue Foundation and Heal the Bay. For example, their Sandy Relief T-shirts are helping to recover from the devastating effects of the superstorm.

Made in the United States, one shirt is made from 60 recycled bottles, is toxin-free and wears up to 6 times longer than a regular one. A hundred percent of the proceeds go to the Red Cross. Other products include children's clothing items, tote bags, art and pet supplies. So, get over to their site and help others to have a merrier holiday season.

(Thanks, Jamie)
