Orange Eco-Wellies!!!

16 Jun

I know I live in Dagenham, which isn’t famed for its muddy climes, but I have a thing for wellies. Anyone who’s seen me in my chocolate printed ones, and the passionate love I showed when I saw my friend’s newspaper printed ones will know that for sure! 

I also like the environment – if I’d been born in another time and place, you’d probably find me swaying under a tree, my afro reaching the heavens, in a kaftan and flower-power wellingtons. 

Orange's Phone Charge Wellies!

Clearly, they need pimping. But the idea still makes me smile!

 

So when my googling put me across Orange’s Eco wellies,  I thought, “Jackpot!!” 

They’re plain black, and I can deal with that, because the soles take in heat from the feet and convert it into electricity to charge your phone with! 

The 50’s Kitsch Queen within me loves that. In a weird way. 

Here’s the only downer though – to charge your phone for an hour, you have to be prepared to walk… wait for it… for 12 hours! 

Exercise, boo. 

I think they should work out how to harness the heat of my butt on a seat.

    sorry, but I just HAD to put my 2 cents in.

      Haha!
      Fart energy is all good, it’s probably more likely to happen than me walking for 12 hours straight!
