Google sells tree-hugging mice

Wireless mouse is made from recycled materials.

Google may not be interested in manufacturing handsets for the Android, but that doesn't mean it's not into hardware of any kind. Among the lava lamps and beach towels in its online tchotchke store, the company is selling a Recycled Mini Wireless Mouse.

This 800 dpi model has a standard Wi-Fi dongle that plugs into a USB port and, when not in use, is stowed inside, according to Shiny Shiny. Nothing new there, but the selling point is obviously the green credentials of this "earth friendly" mouse, which is built out of recycled plastic and comes packaged in recycled materials. All of which seems to dovetail nicely with that whole anti-evil thing.
