Being connected to the internet 24/7 has become more of a necessity than a habit with almost every personal gadget imaginable being given Wi-Fi connectivity these days. Not only does this mean that your internet router is overloaded throughout the day which reduces it lifespan, it also means that routers need to be replaced more often which adds to the electronic waste that usually goes into landfills. Designer Tom Craven, however, has come up with an ingenious solution to make internet routers more sustainable and eco friendly. The Sustainability Internet router is basically a reinterpretation of the Virgin Media internet router which uses 100 percent recycled HDPE injection molded to make it more suited to the purpose.
The light cover, rear case and the main case are all fashioned out of the eco friendly materials that snap together to form a lightweight yet sturdy covering that allows the router to be used just like a regular router which is great for recyclers. Apart from the circuit board, all other parts are designed to snap together without the use of screw, nuts of bolts which makes it even more eco friendly.
The materials used in the design are also recyclable so you don’t have to worry about polluting the environment and killing the planet while you stay connected to the rest of the world.
