Have you ever wondered of vacuum cleaner made out of cardboard and not of any other material which is generally used to make the machine? If not, then check out the Vax EV, the eco friendly vacuum that has been designed by Jake Tyler, a student at the U.K.âs Loughborough University, in collaboration with âVaxâ which is a leading brand of vacuum cleaners in U.K. Jake Tyler was an intern in this vacuum company, which has been constantly promoting new and innovative ideas for their products. The Vax EV is claimed to be a high performance vacuum cleaner that is constructed out of recycled materials which can be further recycled and so do not heap up the landfills.
The flame retardant cardboard retail box that carries the vacuum cleaner can be assembled easily by the consumers to become the body of the vac, and that too without using any glue. These cardboard panels can be gathered around the motor and Tada!!! the Vac is ready to clean your house. The green factor is not limited up to the structure of the vac which is made of recyclable cardboard but also the motor components, which are made out of pure nylon plastic that can be recycled. This material makes use of RP (rapid process) manufacturing in place of injection molding technique. With all those green credentials the vac is also much cheaper than conventional vacuum cleaners and why not as it is made out of the worthless material that was disposed off as trash. The stuff used to make this worthy product has actually saved the landfill space and of course a lot of energy. If some part of the Vax EV is damaged, then no need to wry as it also carries the advantage of being replaced without any trouble. Along with that you can make your vac more attractive by using colorful tip pens. The surface is cardboard after all.
This vacuum has been created to influence people to think and go green. And what can be more better way to go green than recycling. Global warming which is one of the harmful effects of pollution can be restraint once we all put together the effort to recycle. Recycling has gained an enormous importance over the past few years. A recycled material that is used to create a new product of course saves energy and also reduces the space of landfills by cutting the waste material. Recycling is one of the initial steps to be taken to reduce waste. Cardboard is one of the largest solid wastes that is produced every year in business sector. The large bulk of cardboard waste incorporates a sufficiently larger landfill area. And when this bulk decays, methane, which is a harmful and hazardous greenhouse gas is produced in an increased amount. A single bundle bound for storage made out of cardboard saves around 17 trees and 7,000 gallons of water and naturally a grand amount of energy. With recycling every bale of cardboard we can also economize the life sustaining resources.
