Green Power Monitor

Context: We plug our electronic devices into the wall and power strips without giving it a second thought. This ritual happens day after day. Many times electricity and electricity’s impact on the environment is dismissed, but what if one day that power just wasn’t there? Problem: People take a steady and constant flow of electricity for granted. Far too often personal electrical consumption takes a mental back seat in our everyday lives. Solution: An outlet is combined with growing plant life allowing water to act as a conductor for the electricity. All reactions will be contained safely inside glass and rubber. The concept is simple; water the plants every week and the outlet will function normally. Forget to take care of your environment by not watering the plant, and the outlet will not give off electricity. Brand Strategy: Repurposed glass is incorporated in the shell and inner workings of this desktop tool. The consumer will be constantly reminded on how advantageous recycled glass can be by recognizing glass’s insulating ability, transparency, and weight.
