The memo paper pad with the canned plant
Green Cycle, by Taiwan-based designers Wei-Ran Lee and Bo-Chin Chu, is a memo paper pad that comes with a small plant hidden in a tin. Each time you take a paper out of the pad, it reminds you to water the plant. When the plant grows up, you have to transfer it in another suitable container, and it will become a potted plant.
The concept is that when we use the paper, we're also destroying the greenness from nature, but we can still create another green life instead.

At least it's a little more tasteful than the Playbot calendar.
