The Bedol Water Water Clock – A ripple in time
We want to improve the environment, but we didn’t exactly grow up knowing every step we should take to be mindful. Day-to-day occurrences like forgetting to turn off power-sucking devices or throwing away batteries which we often forget shouldn’t be tossed in the trash or recycling are a little too normal. While you can try to put up sticky notes to remind yourself to do things differently, wouldn’t it help if your gadgets, gizmos, and appliances ran on clean energy that didn’t need much maintenance so you didn’t have to take extra steps?
While it is small in the grand scheme of things, the Bedol Water Clock has no use of batteries or being plugged in. It runs on H2O! Of course, if you want to get really technical, you can look into how it was produced and do background checks on the impact the company has on the environment with their use of plastic and manufacturing methods, but I doubt it’s worth the trouble unless you’re going into complete tree-hugger mode.
This clock has a transparent tank in the back where you can see the water, and it can keep going on the initial amount for about 6 months to a year before needing to be changed out. This works because “the positive and negative ions in water serve as a conductor for the metal plates to create energy to power the clock”. It comes in teal, and is over a foot tall/wide so it will be easy to see. Should you be interested, it will cost you around $89. If that ruined your interest, there are plenty of solar-powered watches and clocks out there that will cost far less.
