AS ECO-WARRIORS go, Santa is an unlikely candidate. But he cunningly does his bit for global warming. His sleigh is driven by reindeer power, and - little known fact - Rudolph himself runs on fully recycleable jelly bean fuel. These tasty beans are now available for everyone to munch from the super dooper reindeer pooper. You fill his tummy up with beans and dispense them by pressing his back. The perfect way to stuff your face and do your bit for the environment at the same time.
