Bird-Electron EZ17-B: Eco-Friendly iPod Recycling Speaker

As someone who appreciates our planet (definitely more so if I were juxtaposed with an extraterrestrial leader intent on Earth’s destruction), I’ve taken a cue from Apple’s eco-friendly initiatives.

The Bird-Electron EZ17-B iPod Recycling Speaker caught my eye as a means to support environmental sustainability while indulging in my love for tech gadgets.

This innovative device, priced at $40, ingeniously converts the packaging of your 2nd or 3rd generation Shuffle or 1st or 2nd generation Nano into a compact speaker.

While it may not deliver earth-shattering sound quality, it does offer a sense of superiority over others, which, let’s be honest, is somewhat of a hidden perk of using Apple products.
