ATP EarthDrive 4GB Flash Drive



Let's face it, the environment is in trouble. While it's neat to have 1,000 flash drives all over the place so we won't be without one in need, wouldn't it be neater to have one fast one that's environmentally friendly? ATP has come out with a fantastic invention called the EarthDrive 4GB Flash Drive. While it may look plasticky like any other flash drive, it's rather small, and made from....corn? Today, TechwareLabs checks out the new "corndrive."


ATP's Take:

"With years of product development and extensive research, the EarthDrive™ is designed and built using the maximum amount of recycled materials, resulting in a fully recyclable product. The EarthDrive™ is not only the most environmentally friendly storage device on the market today, but a dependable storage product as well.

The ATP EarthDrive™ is the world's first recyclable USB Drive, appropriately named the EarthDrive™. With years of product development and extensive research, the EarthDrive's housing is designed and built using the maximum amount of biodegradable materials (PLA), resulting in a fully recyclable product. PLA (Polylactic acid) is a biodegradable polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn."



  • Designed with Recycled Material
    The EarthDrive's unique housing was designed to be recyclable.
  • American Forests Partnership
    In partnership with the American Forests, a portion of all EarthDrive™ product sales will go towards the planting of trees.
  • Waterproof for all Conditions
    In addition to being one of the most durable USB drives in the world, the EarthDrive™ is also one of the most versatile. Built with ATP's SIP technology, all vital flash components are completely encapsulated allowing for shock proof, waterproof, and dust proof durability.
  • Security Protection
    The EarthDrive's built in security software allows for password protection of private data.
