A Belgian company called United Pepper has released a couple of cute yet eco-friendly gadgets for the computer, namely the Lili Webcam and the Oscar USB Hub. United Pepper are delivering quality products using strong ethical and environmental principles. For example, the webcam and usb hub are made in Vietnam in safe working conditions at a fair wage using adult labour. The product itself is stuffed using naturally occuring Kapok tree fibre rather than petroleum-based polyurethane foam.
The USB hub is a pretty standard 4-port USB 2.0 hub in every way apart from it’s appearance and green manufacturing principles. The webcam is a 1.3 MPixel USB webcam that has a built in microphone and can capture 30 frames per second. Just goes to show that cheap gadget stuff does not have to be bad for the environment.
