It’s difficult to read a paper or search the net these days without coming across come people who have jumped on the great green bandwagon and are pronouncing all kinds of wonderful designs that will make a difference to the world, or save it. So, what do you make of this new invention – a hay phone. Yup, that’s right, a phone made of recycled grass, basically.

The Natural Year Phone is for users who really don’t care for all the fandangled bells and whistles you would find on today’s high-spec all-singing-all-dancing phones. It’s there to make a call and nothing more.

Designed by Je-Hyun Kim with the thinking that plastic takes at least a gajillion years to decompose, the hard components of this phone can be easily recycled and the grass parts reused wherever you please, although smoking it probably isn’t the best idea.

Manufacturers say the phone should completely breakdown within two years, but as most people shove their phone in a pocket or bag, sit on it, or drop it, they’ll be lucky if it survives a week! Still, design would have never got us anywhere without a few rarities like these so it’s worth it for its quirkiness at least.
