See, one of those little things about living in the information age, our lives are really tied up with computers. So if something happens to said computers...poof, we have no life. But that's why we make backups! (Wait, you are backing up, aren't you?) Well, if you're sick of cluttering your desk with more drab metal boxes, the SimpleTech [re]drive External Hard Drive ($68, 500GB) is a very eco-friendly alternative. Its case is made with renewable, naturally grown bamboo and recyclable aluminum, and the hard drive is designed to use up to 30% less energy. The packaging is even biodegradable. Help out the earth, save your life...good deal.
