Ever thought that your vacuum cleaner was just not eco-friendly enough? No? Maybe not, but this was the idea behind Jake Tyler's award winning Eco Vac. This innovative design uses flame retardant recycled cardboard and other sustainable materials, which keeps landfill waste to a minimum. The casing is even made up of the very box it is sold in.
The Vax ev is nominated for an International Design Excellence Award and although currently only a prototype may soon be put into limited production around Europe. One attraction of the design is that the card panels can be used as a canvas for the owners own artistic creations. But If felt tip pen doodling doesn't excite you it also works perfectly well to clean carpets.
