With the 40th anniversary of Earth Day approaching, I've been keeping my eye out for stylish, eco-minded décor to celebrate this month. When I spotted Ikea's new Solig Lamp ($20), I thought it was the cutest modern table lamp, and perfect to use as a night-light on a bedside table. Then, I realized that it's actually solar-powered! The light runs on solar cells that transform sunlight into electricity to help curb your environmental footprint. Better yet, it uses LEDs, which consume 70 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs. Top that with the fact that this solar-powered lamp requires no electrical cords (goodbye messy wires!), and I think we'd all better jump in our hybrids and head over to the nearest Ikea.
