In cooperation with Sony Ericsson, NTT DoCoMo is experimenting in using plastics created from plants for mobile phones. To be more specific, the plastic is created from the starch and sugars of corn and potatoes, which is then fermented with lactic-acid bacilli. The plastic is destined to become water and carbon dioxide, as it will slowly break down over time.
