Great Green Technology: [re]Drive Bamboo Hard Drive (+Giveaway)

[re]Drive Bamboo hard drive

One of the things I’ve been looking to focus on more here at Green Your Decor is technology. Gone are the days when interior designers could create a room completely devoid of TVs or computers of any kind. They are an integral part of our lives and often, an integral part of our decor. So as Green Your Decor continues, I will present you with some technology options that are both stylish and green, so you don’t feel like you have to hide your computer/TV/gadgets for the sake of a well-designed room.

The first product in this category is a product that I have used and absolutely, positively love. The (re)Drive from SimpleTech by Fabrik is a beautiful, eco-friendly 500 GB external hard drive that you would be proud to display on your desk. Mine is right at home next to my Dell Studio Hybrid PC, a green computer I will be reviewing later thanks to my participation in the ElevenMoms group. You can see my setup in the photo below.

The {re}Drive case is made of sustainable bamboo and reinforced aluminum with up to 30% recycled content, which is fully recyclable. The bamboo case makes it quite a statement in style, and it also means that the drive doesn’t get hot, which is a big deal for a drive with such an impressive amount of storage. With 500GB, instead of having to delete digital photos when your camera’s memory card gets full, you can simply archive them.

What I also love is that the (re)Drive doesn’t start using any power until it is plugged into both your computer and an electrical outlet, so turning it off is as simple as unplugging it from your computer. This makes it more energy-efficient, and the Energy Star power adapter increases that efficiency. Personally, I don’t want to have to think about the ghost power all my electronics are drawing when they are not in use, so this is a great feature and one I have relied on quite a bit.

Another great feature that has served me well is that it is both Mac and PC compatible — absolutely a must since I have one of each. You literally just plug it in to an available USB port on your computer and it works. If you have a Turbo USB port, the drive will be even faster than it already is. Even with a regular USB port, it took me a matter of a few short hours to transfer all of my huge graphic design files from the 5 or 6 jump drives where they had been housed to a well-organized archive folder on the [re]Drive. Now, all — and I mean ALL — of my files are in one place, which makes for a more organized desk for me.

And even the packaging is eco-friendly. I kept the box it came in knowing that we will likely be moving into our own space in a few months (we’re living with family now), but there is no styrofoam. The outer box and cushion packaging are both made of recyclable cardboard, although the drive itself was in a plastic bag marked #4 recyclable. Many stores like Kroger and Walmart will allow you to recycle plastic bags, so it is no-waste packaging. Add to that free online storage (which I haven’t tried yet) and unlimited tech support, and you’ve got a winner.

I absolutely love this drive, and it is proof that no matter what product you are looking to buy, you can find a greener alternative. Anyone who has a computer could use an external hard drive. If you’d like to give one as a , and this one would be a tech-friendly way to introduce them to green living.

Why It’s Green:

  • Made of bamboo and aluminum with up to 30% recycled content that is also recyclable
  • Doesn’t emit wasted energy in the form of heat
  • Power-saving system only powers on when plugged into both your computer and an outlet
  • Energy Star adapter requires up to 90% less energy than comparable drives

Price: $139.99

    So, going to the site, caught me on a rabbit trail, off to Joggle. (beta.joggle.net) that is a pretty dang cool concept going on.

    Wow – just checked out SimpleTech’s website (had to search for it; there’s no link in your post :( ) and checked out more about this hard drive. I’m a photographer and I’m running my business green, so this would be an absolute DREAM of an external hard drive for me (which I need).

    I found out that the bamboo in this thing is steam pressed using only water – no chemicals! I don’t even keep bleach in my house, so this is wonderful. :) And the minimal packaging is a favorite point of interest as well.

    I like that these durable materials come together to create a unique design that looks and stays cool, without noisy fans. Thanks so much for the chance.

  • Tanya December 9, 2008, 8:18 pm

    I love how the materials can fully be disassembled for recycling in the future. What a truly eco-friendly product!

  • Adam December 10, 2008, 12:00 am

    I like that fact that is has a Energy Star power adapter, I didn’t know that. Also love their slogan. Just got a new mac (the most eco-friendly computer) and this would go great to backup!
    Thanks.

    I like that there is “No extra bags or inserts; the user guide is printed on the inside of the box and is also digitally stored on the drive”. Most times I stand in disbelief in all the extra packaging used. If all companies could reduce, imagine all the resources & money saved.

  • Jamaise December 10, 2008, 8:31 am
  • Dree December 10, 2008, 9:09 am

    I like the simple mini. It comes in great colors and is easy to travel with.

  • Laura December 10, 2008, 9:30 am

    I never thought about the assembly line before in regards to minimal impact–the point that this drive is as symmetrical as possible so that they have to make fewer parts is pretty impressive. I did look at a few of their other products and this seems to be the exclusive ‘green’ item. Hopefully this is just the beginning of a trend for their company.

  • Lisa December 10, 2008, 10:00 am

    I think it’s SUPER cool that they’re growing the bamboo local (hopefully being careful that it doesn’t take over local plant life). AND i LOVE that they have specially sourced low-power hard drives- saving up to 40% for the consumer while keeping the processing speed! :)

  • Alessandro December 10, 2008, 3:10 pm

    I learned that some species of bamboo grow as much as two feet a day… makes sense to use it.

  • Andrew December 10, 2008, 4:29 pm

    I’ve been an RSS subscriber for a little while. Keep it coming! I’m hoping to write a blog entry too. Love this hard drive!

  • Andrew December 10, 2008, 4:36 pm

    Over at SimpleTech, I thought their Joggle service was pretty cool for synchronizing your stuff to be accessible from anywhere.

    Also, I stumbled one of your articles: http://arskinner.stumbleupon.com/public/

  • Robin December 10, 2008, 8:04 pm

    Really impressive product – I love that they’re using bamboo, and also that the eco-friendly design augments the drive’s ability to stay cool! Some of my electronic devices generate so much heat and get so hot during use.

  • Andrea Peak December 11, 2008, 12:21 am

    Cool I didn’t know bamboo could grow up to 2 feet in a day ! This company’s products are so awesome.

  • Laura December 11, 2008, 1:45 am

    Okay, since I think this is one of the coolest things ever, I am doing all I can to win it. ;)

    I love that the user guide is printed on the inside of the box. The guides are normally such a waste in my opinion because you only have to refer to it once, but if you need it more often it’s also on the hard drive itself. Yay!

  • Lorrie December 11, 2008, 2:32 pm

    I love that it will add some green to the most “un-green” item in my home!

  • Robin December 11, 2008, 2:45 pm

    I love that this product is sustainable and conserves energy! How amazing! I have been looking for a product to do this very thing! PLUS the packaging is sustainable which is something I look for now a days too!

  • Stephanie V December 11, 2008, 6:36 pm

    some species of bamboo grow as much as two feet a day — had no idea — wow!

  • Erin Walsh December 11, 2008, 6:40 pm

    Unlimited technical support? That has to be a typo. A product that’s efficient, green, versatile and attractive, what else could you ask for?

    I’ve also subscribed to your feed on Yahoo. Thanks!

  • Marigold December 11, 2008, 6:49 pm

    This is probably shallow of me, but I love that this product matches my decor! I recently redid the floors of my apartment in bamboo panelling and silver accents, so this would lovely piece of technology would look right at home on my desk!

    After going to the website I read a little more about the the hard drive and found out that there is no instruction manual included, instead the instructions are printed on the inside of the box! That’s so clever! This is a great product and one I would LOVE to win. Thanks for having the contest. Love your blog!

  • stephanie December 11, 2008, 7:42 pm

    it’s not only 1000xs more gorgeous than my other externals, but it includes their award-winning backup software, including 2GB free online backup and free unlimited & friendly technical support … ya!!

  • Katie December 11, 2008, 8:57 pm

    I love the look of it and that it is made with recycled material is fabulous but what stood out to me the most is Friendly, free unlimited technical support sometimes I just don’t buy something because I don’t want to pay for help to figure it out but this is so great for those that don’t get it. Also like that it is compatible with mac or pc. Thanks.

  • sito December 11, 2008, 9:21 pm

    Wow! I love just how green this [re]Drive is. I like the idea of unlimited technical support. I am very sorry that they had that link to Jooble, though, as I spent w-a-a-y too much time, and I still have it open to return. Excellent giveaway. Thanks!

  • Liz C December 12, 2008, 11:50 am

    That no matter what happens to the drive on your desk — a spilled drink, a curious toddler, a theft or a natural disaster — you know your files are still safe and secure.
    So it would survive my cats & my grandkids

  • Frances December 12, 2008, 12:50 pm

    I went to the Fabrik site. It was neat. I like how the adapter only consumes power when it is plugged into the computer AND the outlet. I know my network of electronic wires makes it not userfriendly to unplug all the time. This is a great idea.

  • Frances December 12, 2008, 12:52 pm

    I saw the Joggle. I love technology that helps to organize all my data into one location saving me time and frustration. I’m definitely interested in this product.

    I had no idea that the SimpleTech Turbo USB 2.0 was 25% faster than comparable models! Being both Mac and PC compatible adds to its versatility! Energy efficiency is important to me — the less of a carbon footprint we leave, the better! You should thank the writers over at Ecobunga newsletter for the serendipity of including your giveaway in their ezine — without it I would not have known your site existed! I just signed up for ‘Green Your Decor’ ezine ( as of 12/15/2008) and confirmed it through FeedBurner, so I truly hope that I am holding the Golden Ticket for the Bamboo Hard Drive. Thanks for the opportunity!!!

    I like the fact that it doesn’t need an energy wasting fan. Aluminum is so cool….literally! Anyway we LOVE this item at our house. Thanks for the chance at winning this. My son has his fingers crossed on this prize!!

    wow, I didn’t realize that some species of bamboo can grow up to 2 feet a day! I also like the fact that it is easy to use and stylish without being gaudy-the design is easy on the eyes and can go with pretty much any type of computer/home interior.

    The Signature Mini Portable device looks like something I could use. I love the look of the recycled bamboo on this hard drive up for grabs. Thanks for the entry and happy holidays!

    Total power savings could equal up to 90 percent when compared to traditional external drives* or the equivalent of reducing approximately 475 lbs of carbon dioxide emissions over the life of the drive.
    We sure could use this at our house seems like with teens you have a ton of items that bog down the pc.
    Thank you

    Happy Holidays

    Loved to learn about the (re)drive today. It was good to read about bamboo ‘s growth, that the bamboo is grown local to the manufacturing plant and especially that it can be manufactured sans chemicals. A hard drive was on my list for Santa, but now I learned that this is the one to have: energy efficient, green materials, good-looking!

    I love SimpleTech’s products. We already have a 500GB SimpleDrive that’s almost full! I would love the [re]Drive as an extra backup because it’s energy efficient (and really nice looking, too). After having other brands (not SimpleTech) of external drives fail, you can never have too much backup!

    I always consider packaging when buying products (especially green products) so I’m excited to learn that:

    “No extra bags or inserts; the user guide is printed on the inside of the box and is also digitally stored on the drive”

  • Shannon December 16, 2008, 4:08 pm

    Cool. I like that computer components can be made with renewable materials.

  • Inna December 16, 2008, 4:09 pm

    I subscribed to your blog (which I love!) in Google Reader.

    and another things I love about the drive:
    “Aluminum enclosure acts as a heat sink, cooling the drive without using additional energy or creating noise (like a fan)”

  • kathy pease December 16, 2008, 5:30 pm

    i learned All models incorporate specially sourced low-power hard drives, saving consumers up to 40% in hard drive power consumption that is a HUGE PLUS

  • Angie P December 16, 2008, 6:23 pm

    I love that it’s using 40% less energy…I love green products. I hope to be a winner!!!

  • Doreen December 16, 2008, 6:48 pm
