Brown Paper Flower Packaging Which Doesn’t Look Down-to-earth

Usually when you get a bouquet of flower from store, it wrapped with some brown paper or transparent plastic. It is no problem when it is for yourself. However, if it is a gift, it just looks so effortlessly store-bought and without any personal touch. Of course, we don’t encourage wasting on one-time-use packaging. But is there a way to bring back that personal touch to the act of bouquet-giving with environment-protection in mind? Designers Johanna Brännström, Charlie Nyrjä, Alexandra Forssén and Camilla Edlund gave their answer: Swedbag. The packaging uses brown paper that can be easily folded into a cone to contain the flowers. Its unique design allows it to wrap around both small and large bouquets. The carrying bag for the bouquet is a breath of fresh air, with its unique shape, crafted to showcase the bouquet in all its natural glory.

What you will do when your pencil are too small to actually write with? Most probably, dump it in the trash. Three MIT students think it is a huge waste considering there are 15 billion pencils made each year. Hence, they created a multifunctional alternative called Sprout Pencil. In place of an eraser, the wooden pencils have a biodegradable capsule containing a mixture of seeds and peat. So when you wear a pencil down to a stub, you can simply place the instrument in a pot of soil and grow lavender, basil, sunflowers, tomatoes, green peppers, and more. By doing this, an expired product is literally giving birth to a new form of life. What a brilliant ideas! These eco-friendly pencils are quite populate in Europe and now, you can get them in America as well. 8 plant-able pencils for $18 is not that cheap.
