We can admit there are some weird items out here in the green world.
According to Ecoble, many designers and innovators are working hard to find fun and creative alternatives to make simple items greener. The latest is a phone made from hay.
The phone (designed by Je-Hyun Kim) is made with good intentions and breaks down after two years, then you can reuse the screen and the keypad for another green phone.
From dog hay to cow fat, there are many other items used to help protect the planet. Check them out in the gallery below.
