The quest for environmentally savvy products takes some inventors down scary roads
The green movement has gained a lot of momentum in recent years, no doubt prompted by rising energy costs, a weak economy and environmental disasters like the BP oil spill.
Some have been quick to capitalize on the trend, losing practicality in the frenzy to attain another kind of green — the kind that shows up on a balance sheet. Others create extreme concepts that will never become everyday realities, in order to raise awareness.
Either way, the results can be just plain nuts.
