Remember the days when computers were clunky, big and ugly? Well, times have changed and Apple continues to push their stylish lifestyle designs to new limits. The lastest Mac mini redesign looks great while lowering its environmental impact.

Sporting a new single piece enclosure machined from highly recyclable aluminum enclosure, the new Mac mini uses 68 percent less plastics than previous generations. It is one of the most material-efficient desktop computers available, according to Apple.

It doesn’t stop with just the design of the computer itself. Apple is committed to the environment and in their own words, “Apple takes a complete product life-cycle approach to determining our environmental impact.” Many people and companies forget that we need to look at the entire eco-system and product life-cycle from materials, production, distribution, use and recycling. We applaud Apple in their commitment and approach.

SIGG designer bottles are a good way to save money and help the environment. These bottles are produced from recycled aluminum scrap and are themselves recyclable once your done with them. The materials are BPA free and phthalate free so you don’t have to worry about that.

Best of all, they come in a variety of stylish designs and colors. You can look good carrying the SIGG bottles around and be eco-friendly at the same time. Also, know that you are being smart as you save money on expensive overhyped water marketed in plastic bottles.

SIGG has even partnered with CafePress to allow you to customize your own SIGG bottle.

It may seem simple, but for some reason people continue to drink mass amounts of off the shelf bottled water out of the home. There are just so many things wrong with that picture. Here are just a couple.

1) Plastic water bottles end up in the garbage and waste natural resources

Producing plastic bottles requires the consumption of oil. Then the bottles themselves are thrown in the trash. While the bottles are desirable to recyclers, statistics estimate that over 80% of all water bottles end up in the garbage and are not recycled. Do yourself and the environment a favor, use a reusable bottle.

Welcome to Sublime Green.

We are an eco-friendly blog focused on the idea that “being green and eco-friendly doesn’t have to be dull.” By looking at cool and stylish products that introduces green and eco-friendly concepts to the masses, we hope to make being green and eco-friendly more palatable to consumers.

In our debut post to kick-off the site, what better way than to take a look at the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid. This car is not a consumer product, but the idea is to develop new automotive technologies, race test them and trickle down into cars that you and I can buy off the lot.
