Inhabitat points us to an innovative new kind of shipping container that could help cut down CO2 emissions. The Cargoshell containers fold and open in only 30 seconds, and shrink down to a quarter of their size. Made of a composite material that weighs 25% less than traditional shipping container material, the containers (if put into use replacing steel containers) could cut down on 10,000 return trips with empty containers a year.
