Who wouldn’t love Williams-Sonoma’s Ecopod Recycling System? Chic and sleek, this manually-operated bottle crusher happily takes residence in a kitchen corner, churning out 50 squashed plastic or aluminum beverage containers in a plastic “pod” that’s easily transferred to your curbside recycling bin. Dressed in brushed stainless steel and plastic, the unit is available in black or white to match your décor, and offers up a space for newspapers, glass bottles, plastic baggies and other recyclables until that time of the week. $328.
