Innovative New Bladeless Wind Power: The “Windstalk” Project
The proposed design calls for 1,203 ““stalks,” each 180-feet high with concrete bases that are between about 33- and 66-feet wide. The carbon-fiber stalks, reinforced with resin, are about a foot wide at the base tapering to about 2 inches at the top. Each stalk will contain alternating layers of electrodes and ceramic discs made from piezoelectric material, which generates a current when put under pressure. In the case of the stalks, the discs will compress as they sway in the wind, creating a charge.

Civic Duty creates shoes made out of recycled tyvek!
Students from Humboldt State University have taken plastic water bottles full of waste and used them in the construction of an addition of a school in the Dominican Republic. They also used old bike parts and newspaper to make a wind turbine. Just another way to repurpose trash.
