Thanks to the green movement, more people are taking time to buy products with the environment in mind. (Earth Day is April 22nd, BTW.) And while most products, like reusable grocery totes, sanely promote a healthy planet, some take the idea of going green to the extreme (see what we mean here). No surprise, they all come from the fashion world.
Trust us, even those with the greenest intentions will want to skip these environmentally friendly fashions, which are slightly more wacky than wearable. Scroll down to see the four weirdest eco-clothing items we found, or click here for more weird green products, along with their saner counterparts.
Solar Power Bikini
This solar power bikini can recharge your iPod or cell while you soak up the summer sun. You can also wear this futuristic design in the water. And unlike some eco-crazy products, this one is actually in production. New York-based creator Andrew Schneider is taking custom orders. As for the comfy factor, something tells me this solar power bikini doesn't rank high.

Did your creep meter just go off? Mine did too. Vests, coats, and sweaters are just a few clothing items made from the discarded and/or shaved fur of beloved pets. Yup, once the fur has been collected, it gets mailed off to a "specialist" who turns the fur into yarn. The yarn then gets sent back to the owner and they can make the latest fashion out of Muffy's coat. There's even a book available called "Knitting with Dog Fur," available on Amazon.com. Does anyone else feel slightly itchy?
Pic Nic Pants
I don't know who thought eating off their crotch was a good idea, but these "Pic Nic" pants are just for that purpose. I guess it saves you a plate, paper towels, napkins, and other eating necessities, which reduces excess waste.
Pollution Sensitive Dress
OK, you can't actually buy this dress, but the idea is enough to get it into the category of "eco-crazy." Created by Stephanie Sandstrom, the EPA Dress might look nice, but not when it hits a heavily polluted area. The dress responds to bad air, and begins to wrinkle up when the smog gets harmful. And I wonder, why isn't this dress in production?
