Here is cool designed Go-Green bike/scooter. Designed by Par Lanking from Sweden this plywood and aluminum frames can be a scooter with a seat for your boo or child ( If I'm a dude I don't give rides to other dudes, that's not for me or within my G-Code belief as a grown man, lol) or a bicycle. There is footboards on the back which serve as "pegs' so to speak.

Here is a statement from the designer:
The bike is designed taking eco-commuting to the next level. The research and prototyping was built upon cleaning (fishing bikes from) the river Po’ in Turin, Italy, to get material for the first prototype. Cheap and as fast as possible. In the same time it directed the project towards the “No Oil” manifest and the integration of nature and it’s material in the bike. Laminated wood and aluminium was chosen for the frame. This gave the bike chock-absorbing character, and integrated fenders into the frame. The bike has it target among a hi-end, trend sensitive public, looking for fun while commuting short distance. You can carry a second passenger behind you, and the “surf deck” between pedals and front fender allows you to use it as a kick-bike. Very useful crossing streets and in crowded places were pedaling is difficult or even dangerous.
