There's noting like a really slick design to inspire some eco-friendly behaviors. In this case, it is the design of the Ecopod Home Recycling Center that is getting us in the mood to be a touch more diligent when it comes to recycling. The pod was designed by BMW Designworks and automatically compacts plastic and aluminum containers.A bin at the bottom collects the newly compact pieces and holds them until they can be redeemed or collected for processing. There are removable bins inside the lid to store glass, paper and other noncompactible items before collection, as well. Price: $328.
