Sep 28 2012 - 3:18am

Environmentally conscious shoppers, rejoice! You can now find products that fit your requirements on Vine.com [1], a new eco-friendly shopping site that has the moral backbone of Mother Nature and the shipping speed of Amazon, its parent company. The website only sells products that fit into one or more of the following categories: natural, organic, renewable-energy-powered, reusable, made with sustainable materials, toxin-removing, energy-efficient, or water-efficient. Of course, we're searching the site on the lookout for gadgets that comply with green standards; check out our eight sustainable tech picks.

Brunton SolarRoll Flexible Solar Panels

Renewable energy on the go? Yes, please! These Flexible Solar Panels [2] ($280) can be easily tucked into a backpack, making them an ideal companion for outdoor adventures and globetrotting expeditions.

Verilux Natural Spectrum Deluxe Desk Lamp

This energy-efficient Natural Spectrum Desk Lamp [3] ($60) was made specifically for readers, crafters, and computer users and comes with a bulb that lasts 10,000 hours.

Philips Ecomoods Pendant Light

Sleek, stylish, and energy-efficient lamps are the best kind of lighting, if we do say so. Philips's Ecomoods Dimmable Pendant Light [4] ($232) is 80 percent more efficient than standard lighting — and lasts longer, too.

Salter Bamboo Kitchen Scale

Bamboo is strong and grows quickly, which makes it the ultimate eco-friendly renewable source. Home chefs and bakers will enjoy this Salter Bamboo Scale [5] ($40) with a bright blue display and touch control buttons.

Sunpentown Soymilk Maker

Packaging from store-bought products can take a toll on the environment. This energy-efficient Soymilk Maker [6] ($118) will lessen that human impact by allowing households to store soymilk in reusable containers.
