Dutch designers Maarten Heijltjes and Simon Akkaya of design firm Waarmakers have designed an electric scooter made out of plants.

The Be.e scooter, which was created for sustainable mobility company Van.Eko, has a frameless body made from natural fiber-reinforced composites or NFC’s instead of the usual plastic and metal. NFCs are basically a ‘greener’ version of the more commonly known glass-fibre composites. Instead of glass-fibres, flax and bio-resin were used to make the body of the scooter lightweight, strong and sustainable.
