Earth Day gadgets: Spend green on green (photos)
HandStand recycled iPad cover
By some measures, as many as a billion people are expected to observe Earth Day today, sending a message that they care about the environment. Of course, for some, this will be the ecological equivalent of making an annual appearance in church on Easter Sunday (which is also coming up in case you hadn't noticed) and dropping a big bill in the offering to make up for your last 51 straight unexcused absences.
Fortunately, if you're looking to pay your way out of your eco-guilt for slacking on the recycling this year, we've rounded up this gallery of environmentally friendly gadgets and accessories for Earth Day XLI--they're kinda like buying carbon offsets...that come with cool free schwag.
This HandStand 2, for example, should be kept far away from all iPad addicts currently in recovery. For everyone else, it's a dream come true--literally making your iPad 2 an extension of one of your appendages, Inspector Gadget-style. Strap this ergonomic, 360-degree rotating iPad case on your hand without burdening your conscience, thanks to the knowledge that it's made in the U.S. with 100 percent recycled plastics and resins. Get it here for $49.95.
