Nimble 5-Day Fast Portable Charger
Nimble is killing it with this charger. Again, I am a sticklerwho doesn’t want to sacrifice on quality or performance underany circumstance. Nimble does a great job with this. You willget up to 80 percent charge within 30 minutes. Loaded withthree USB-A ports and one USB-A, this little guy can chargefour devices at a time, from the iPhone to the Google Pixel tothe Nintendo Switch. It isn’t too bulky or heavy either! Nimblemade this charger out of recycled aluminum and plant-basedbioplastics and ships it to you in plastic-free packaging. That isa huge one! The loads of plastic shipping materials companiesuse to send us our tech gear is out of control.
To top it off, every Nimble product includes a pre-paidreturn envelope so you can send old electronics directly totheir e-waste recycling partner for safe, responsible recyclingat no additional cost. Nimble is actively working to clean thewaste created by other tech gadgets.

Greenpeace has consistently rated Apple as one of thegreenest and most sustainable tech companies. Apple hasused 100 percent renewable energy in its data centers since2014 and all of its facilities worldwide since 2018. It is alsotaking measures to clean up its supply chain, bringing atotal of 44 of its suppliers to 100 percent clean energy lastyear, double the number from the year before. At its productassembly sites, Apple is also reducing its greenhouse gasemissions and water usage by billions of gallons, thanks to itsZero Waste to Landfill initiative. It is encouraging to see techgiants like Apple move forward toward sustainable businesspractices. While Apple purposefully keeps us buying productsevery year (which is terrible for the environment), Apple is atleast genuinely attempting to clean up its consumption andours along with it.
