wouldn’t this be lovely??

We not only bring our reusable bags to the grocery store, but also bring our used plastic produce bags for fruits and veggies. We reuse them until one day all the limes fall out of the bottom! Unfortunately, same produce is already packaged – spinach, cucumbers, mushrooms – in oftentimes undesirable styrofoam trays. I came across this post on Inhabitat and thought “wouldn’t this be great?!” Leave it to a collegiate European, Ben Huttly, a Visual Communication student at the Arts University College at Bournemouth(UK), to come up with this clever, biodegradable, plantable, zero-waste packaging for fruits and vegetables.
