O2 Goes to the Roots of Rugby for New Smartphone

A prototype smartphone for rugby lovers has been built – using grass from Twickenham Stadium. In an effort to boost its recycling credentials, O2 created the concept unit using tens of thousands of blades of grass from the Stadium, as well as components from older phones. The grass was freeze-dried shortly after being cut, then pulped and moulded into a template. Finally, it was coated with an eco-friendly resin. Mass production isn’t really an option, though – the phone took more than 240 hours to make!
