Daryl Hannah has finally met an environmentally friendly company she doesn't like.

The ecoconscious actress has sued the makers of a hybrid electric bicycle for putting her picture on their promotional website and on the cover of a company catalog without her permission.

Per court documents filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Hannah's legal camp wrote to Currie Technologies Inc. in May, asking that a picture of her riding one of the company's bicycles, which implied that she endorsed the product, be removed from the company's site.
