If you wince every time you toss a banana peel into the trash and think, I really need to compost, let your guilt evaporate (or decompose). The Green Cone offers a simple, tidy alternative to the...

If you have a six-foot cable where a one-foot length of cord will do, the Cable Turtle may be the answer. Designed by the Dutch company Flex/The Innovation Lab, the Cable Turtle winds up like a yo...
Designed by 31-year-old inventor Chris Hawker, the PowerSquid takes a familiar concept—the power strip—and turns it inside out. The PowerSquid looks like, well, a squid, complete with a pair of...
