gold.jpgFinally, an Olympic medal we can all aspire to.

The gold, silver and bronze wavy trophies being passed out to the best of the best are themselves the best of the best this time. Designed by Omer Arbel, an acclaimed architect and industrial designer, and Corrine Hunt, a First Nations artist from the Raven Gwa'wina clan, of the Kwakwaka'wakw village on Vancouver Island, the shiny mementos are actually green.

As part of the Olympic organizing committee efforts on sustainablity, computer components, circuit boards, chips, cell phones and other parts and electronics castoffs were mined for their precious metals, which were then melted down to create the awards.

To take it a step further, the controversial Canadian mining company Teck Resources was tasked with extracting and retasking the metals from the used electronics.

The giant dishes of excellence turned out pretty cool, more so because of the moethods used to produce them.

Quick: how much do you spend a month on utilities? Monthly bills in the newly unveiled i-House clock in at less than $70.

It's not a new gadget. It's a house full of them -- a project designed by Clayton Homes as an affordable means of living green. Clayton says these manufactured houses are 30 percent more energy-efficient than standard construction.

The i-House comes in two versions: a $74,900, 723-square-foot model and the $93,300, 1,023-square-foot model. Both have these standard features: R-21 wall insulation, R-30 floor insulation, R-30 roof insulation, low-e windows, dual-flush toilets, galvanized metal roofing, corrugated steel siding, butterfly roof with rainwater collection, and no-VOC paints. Add-ons include 2 kW of solar, a tankless water heater, low-flow faucets and Energy Star stackable washer-and-dryer.

Want to say i-do? Take a tour here.
