This paper introduces the EcoBears concept that aims to augment household appliances with functional and aesthetic features to promote their use and longevity of use to prevent their disposal. The EcoBears also aim to support the communication of environmental issues in the home setting. The initial design and implementation of the EcoBears that consist of two bear modules (a mother and her cub) is presented as well as the preliminary concept validation and lessons learned to be considered for future work.
