"The Green Depot brings eco-consciousness down to earth, where it belongs. Here are convenient solutions for all those inconvenient truths that plague our minds: dog-waste biobags ($4.95), biodegradable packing peanuts ($6.99 to $39.99), a Solio Hybrid 1000 solar charger ($79.95) that can power your cellphone.
