Add some solar power to your wardrobe!

North Vancouver’s Evolve is the first Canadian distributor of a line of solar-powered handbags by Noon Solar. While the steep price-tag will naturally be a turn-off to many (bags start at $362), these solar-powered totes actually match style with substance (something most designers certainly don’t take into account).
The bags boast a battery pack capable of charging cell phones, Blackberries, PDAs, iPhones, Palms and iPods. It takes about six hours on a sunny day to fully charge the battery, and then you can charge your electronics off of that. You can’t yet charge a laptop from a Noon Solar bag, but it is a good start. The bags are primarily made of leather and/or hemp, and the materials are all either biodegradable or easily reclaimed/re-used.
