How does the Magniwork Generator work?
Magniwork is a zero point magnetic power generator. It uses magnets, and magnetic force to induce perpetual motion. A perpetual motion device refers to a machine that runs perpetually or indefinitely, and produces a larger amount of energy than it consumes. Thus, it produces energy indefinitely without stopping, runs by itself, and no need for a third-party device or resource (like wind or solar) to power it. As a result, creating a completely free electrical energy which can fully power your home for free.

I love this eco-friendly transformer apartment by Hong Kong architect, Gary Chang.
He took a 344 sq. ft. apartment and transformed it into 24 different designs or rooms. The space is able to change designs easily just by sliding panels and walls. It is so simple & extremely eco chic.
Did you know that the average American school-age child throws away 67 pounds of food packaging a year? This includes plastic water bottles, sandwich baggies, and juice boxes. That equates to 18,760 pounds of lunch waste for just one average-size elementary school. That’s a lot of trash!
Next week start reducing those numbers by packing a waste-free lunch for your kids and/or for your day at work. It’s really easy, just follow these simple 5 steps and you’ll cut down your waste in no time.
New Year’s eve is this Friday! Bring in the new year with this eco-friendly upcycled soda can noisemaker. It’s a simple DIY project that can even be done with the kids.
Fun image printed on lightweight or medium weight photo paper.
Empty pull-top, 12 oz., aluminum soda can.
Wood dowel, 1/4″ diameter, about 18″ long (or something similar)
Dried beans, pebbles, dried pasta or something similar.
Medium cardboard, like tag board.
Decorating supplies like yarn, sequins, paint, glitter, etc.
Double stick tape or spray adhesive.
Hot glue gun.
Tin snips (metal-cutting scissors).
Scissors or paper cutter.
Hole punch (1/4″ hole).
Fine-tooth wood saw for cutting the dowel.
Letâ€™s Get Started:
Cut a roughly 1″ hole in the center of the top of the can with tin snips.
Step 2: Measure the inset top of the can (ours was 1 7/8″ in diameter) and cut a cardboard circle that fits. Punch a 1/4″ hole in the center of the cardboard circle.
Step 3: Cut the dowel to about 18″ long with the saw.
Step 4: Shoot a large glob of hot glue down into the center of the bottom of the can. Working fast, insert the dowel and stick it in the glue as close to the center as possible. Hold it until the glue hardens.
Step 5: Drop in a small handful of dried beans.
Step 6: Put the dowel through the hole in the cardboard circle. Apply hot glue around the inset top of the can and press the cardboard circle onto it until the glue hardens.
Step 7: Paint the can and dowel a fun color.
Step 8: Print & trim your image. Adhere it around the can with double stick tape. Be sure the top of the image is facing the right way and that the dowel is at the bottom.
Step 9: Let’s decorate! Get creative here. You can use yarn and make some fringe or a pom-pom. Find odds and ends around the house to glue on like sequin, small buttons, glitter, etc.
