82 Grassy Green Innovations

From Human Plant Sculptures to Eco Auto Installations

— July 2, 2012 — Eco
These green and grassy innovations are eye-catching and inspired by nature. Often striking in appearance, these finds range from looking comfortable to downright weird.

Grass, as a multifunctional material has been creeping its way into fashion, furniture and more. A natural pairing for eco-friendly statement products, grassy imagery is a natural fit for publicity stunts related to sustainability.

One of the most subversive uses for grass is referred to as "mowing graffiti" -- a phenomenon in which people strategically cut grass to spell out a message (some of which can be very daring).

This organic material is bound to keep popping up in places outside of the lawn.
