ADzero eco-friendly phone made from bamboo
Plastic as we know it, doesn’t really do the environment good when disposed away. Materials like these take centuries to break down and aren’t recyclable either. Instead, UK design student Kieron-Scott Woodhouse used bamboo to carve out this astoundingly green smartphone called the ADzero that could soon hit store shelves. The world’s first phone made from bamboo, this one’s made from four-year-old organic bamboo, a raw material that is biodegradable and eco-friendly. Running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the phone weighs half as much as the iPhone 4S and sports a camera with a flash too, making it an ideal device for the nature conscious technology lover.
