Nothing is more essential for back-to-school than having the right computer. The Apple MacBook Pro is one of the most orGLAMIC laptops. It is highly recycled, BFR-free, has reduced packaging, uses an LED-backlit monitor, and has longer-lasting battery power. Not only can you do your homework and access the internet easily, but you can chat with friends and study with each other (or more importantly, discuss each other’s outfits and hairstyles!)  It is also lightweight and compact, so you can bring it with you everywhere.  Click here to learn more about the eco-elements to the Macbook Pro, and here purchase this orGLAMic must-have. -AY

Motorola

Manly Mondays is back with an orGLAMic phone by Motorola.  The MOTO W233 Renew is the first certified carbon-free cellphone on the market.  What does that mean?  Well, through an alliance with carbonfund.org Motorola offsets the amount of energy required to manufacture, distribute and operate the phone.  In addition, the casing for the phone is made of recycled water bottles and is itself 100% recyclable, minimizing the amount of e-waste that ends up in landfills.  Finally, the phone’s packaging consumes 22% less material than your average phone and the manual is printed on post consumer recycled paper with soy-based inks.  Click here to purchase this orGLAMic cell phone.

This week’s MANLY MONDAY post is for all those sexy geeks out there (and the geek chic in all of us) with the Power Smart Tower by iGo.  Hopefully we all know about ‘vampire energy’ by now.  No not the feeling tweens get when staring at Robert Pattinson, but the energy that all our appliances and electronics suck (get it?!) out when not in use but while still plugged in.  With 4 always-on outlets, and 4 iGo green technology outlets, using this orGLAMic power tower can reduce standby energy by up to 85%  This reduces your energy bill as well as your toll on our earth’s resources.  Click here to purchase this orGLAMic gift (and snag one for your home office while you’re at it.)

miniotOkay, okay, the men have spoken, and they want to be represented on orGLAMic!  Stay tuned for MANLY MONDAYS debuting next week, but for now check out the orGLAMic Miniot iWood collection.  These beautiful wood cases, available for iPhones and a variety of iPods, are made from wood from well managed forests.  I personally like the walnut wood, but you can choose from mahogany, oak, cherry, and padouk.   These eco-friendly alternatives can be personalized with a monogram, logo or personal message (and you all know how much I love monograms!)  Click here to check out the entire orGLAMic collection.

Samsung

samsung-reclaim-green-sprintAlways wanting to keep my dutiful orGLAMic followers happy, below is a unisex item to satisfy the testosterone-fueled readership!  Sprint now offers the Samsung Reclaim, an “eco-friendly, socially conscious” phone.  In an effort to minimize the amount of e-waste left behind by our technology choices, this phone is made of 80% recyclable materials.  And while I generally prefer black, simple accessories, I actually like the bright green option of this phone.  The unique color is sure to garner plenty of questions from friends and strangers alike (and plenty of opportunities to talk about going green!)  Click here to purchase this orGLAMic cell phone through Sprint.
