TrendHunter's Top 10 Eco Trends of November
#3 "Topeak Bikamper" Portable Shelter
Using the bike's handle bars as a support beam rather than traditional tent poles, the Topeak Bikamper doubles as both a compact, lightweight tent and a fully functional bicycle. With options of either a 26" mountain bike or a 700c road bike, cycling and camping enthusiasts will be satisfied with its versatility.
#2 "Floating Studio Flat" House Boat
The Floating Studio Flat by WaterSpace, who is normally responsible for "floating offices," is a one-bedroom studio apartment intended for use on inland waterways. Including a wet room, kitchen, bedroom, and sun deck, this new take on the age-old house boat offers a variety of floor plans and amenities. Eco-friendly options include solar-panels and wind turbines.
#1 "MEKA ALP320" Mini Homes
In the heart of New York City's West Village lies a MEKA ALP320, a 320 square foot home made of shipping container and 70% recycled materials. Designers Christos Marcopoulous and Jason Halter included natural bamboo and cedar stripping for this "miniature urban abode."
