What could be more eco-friendly than a tree? I wouldn't know. There are probably lots of things out there that may be more eco-friendly.
I was recently challenged to fold a tree. Most people who make trees make them with all the branches, or possibly simply with very few folds. I wanted something different, something simple, yet also 3D. I didn't take me long to come up with this, I didn't even have to write it down on paper before trying it, I just folded it and there it was. It's out of a 32:32 grid (but you don't have to crease the whole thing!):

And this is what it makes, with the right shaping:
