Packaging grows veggies

25 Mar

vegetables1_kleinGrow vegetables. Harvest vegetables. Clean, sort and pack vegetables in consumer-sized portions. Wrap in packaging and label vegetables. But Sustainability! Reduce packaging: check. Re-use packaging: check. Recycle packaging: check. UK-based Bachelor-of-Arts student Ben Huttly came up with a method to 3R the packaging of veggies: a biodegradable tag afixed with biodegradable twine. Not that I’m convinced by the biodegradable packaging on the market but this one is at least different as follows: After use you take the tag and plant it. Being full of veggie seeds it will grow into your next serving. Ben’s self-imposed brief was how to inspire people to start growing fruit & veggies. Yes, the critics will be saying, “But why should veggies be packaged at all?”, “Laser-etching (used to save on inks & dyes) needs energy too?” but guys, this is still a step better for all the packaged veggies that you do find in retail.
