Change the way you travel from point A to point B on two wheels.   Designed by Izhar Gafni on a kibbutz on the northern coast of Israel, pieces of cardboard were folded like origami and transformed into a bicycle.

Sporting tires made of reconstituted rubber from old car tires that will never puncture and a lightweight, waterproof frame that can support up to 500 pounds, Gafni proved the naysayers and engineers wrong- a bike made entirely out of green materials can be made and for less than $10.  Its eco-friendly design will make change the course of commuters in impoverished countries and will forever change your attitude about a cardboard box in the dumpster.
