A Green Smartphone

Freshly cut grass usually ends up on the compost pile or in the garbage. How about in your pocket? British design company Designworks has decided to put grass clippings in smartphones. Sean Miles, a manager at the consultancy, collected thousands of pieces of grass from Twickenham Stadium, the home of the English rugby union team. He then extracted the moisture from each blade and then carefully placed them inside a recycled resin casing, which was fitted to a Nokia 520 smartphone. As a finishing touch, Miles used English oak for the phone’s buttons and camera bezel. The result is a fully functional, ecologically friendly smartphone. The company is running trials to see if the grass and resin composite can be developed for mass production.
