Gadgets are the most popular gifts this year, and the situation will most likely continue for a long while yet. We all know how much fun and how useful electronics can be, but are you also aware of the impact they have on the environment? From the making of a simple thing, such as earphones, to its disposal, the environment can be adversely affected.
I don’t know about you, but I tend to go through earphones quite quickly. I understand having to replace a set within a couple of months if the set is cheap, but even better quality earphones do not last that long. That’s why when I heard about ThinkSound, I got excited. I have been hearing lots of good things about them: aside from giving excellent sound, they are eco-friendly!
Let’s start with natural wood, which they use for the earphones. This makes for a lower impact on the environment and produces better sound quality as well. The company is proud to say that they use plastic materials sparingly – only when absolutely needed.
If you’re wondering about where the wood comes from, the good news is that the company makes sure that they get wood from renewable resources. Their cables are also PVC-free. Even the packing is made from recycled materials!
You can choose from Rain (9mm) or Thunder (10mm) headphones, the latter having enhanced bass. Rain costs $99.99 while Thunder costs $74.99. US orders costs an additional $4.95 for shipping. For international orders, contact them first to make sure there are no problems.
