No Impact Week: The Most Ridiculous, Wasteful Consumer Products Ever (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

Huffington Post   First Posted: 03/18/10 06:12 AM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 03:25 PM ET

A major theme throughout No Impact Week has been consumption, and how much we buy (and waste!) that is unnecessary. Here at HuffPost Green we've been thinking a lot about consumerism, and in the spirit of cutting back, we thought it was worth highlighting some of the most insane and unnecessary products out there right now. An automatic spinning ice cream cone, an avocado slicer, and a snuggie for your puppy... some of the products created and sold in this country are truly ludicrous and unnecessary. Be sure to vote for the most outrageous offender.

However, we know that we've only reached the tip of the iceberg in terms of wasteful product that are out there. HuffPost Green would love to see these crazy products that you've come across (through website screenshots) or even have around your house.

Spinning Ice Cream Cone
 
In the mood for ice cream but too lazy to move your tongue to lick? We're not kidding - there is actually a product that "solves" this "problem." Check out this video: the ladies of the Today Show test it.
