Flexy – The eco friendly slinky


The fun, accordion-shaped Flexy reminds me of my favorite low-tech gizmo, the Slinky. But it goes one better – it’s earth-friendly! Made of recycled cardboard, the Flexy is biodegradable and comes with instructions to help you make it move in ways including a rippling rainbow, a big dipper and cool sculpture-like shapes. It claims to be able to do everything its metal counterpart can do.

Though not as compact as the old stand-by, it promises not to tangle like a metal spring. For US$18, this could be your new green favorite!

Everyone likes a good Slinky(R), right? Well, the makers of The Flexy think you’ll like this even better! It does everything that its famed metallic counterpart does, AND it’s made of recycled, biodegradable materials! Take it for a walk down the stairs, or turn it into a cardboard sculpture. You never thought you’d have this much fun with cardboard!
