Fruit Pillow
Fruit Pillow

The effects of weeds on crops: compete for soil moisture and nutrients. Therefore, can these weeds be managed properly and used more effectively for the fruit tree itself?
Fruit Pillow is a new type of protective packing for fruit. It is like letting the fruit lie on a pillow. It uses eco-friendly, biodegradable materials to gently encase fruit projects. The main material is dried weeds, which are designed in a manner to protect fruit from bumps and bruises in the delivery process. After the packaging has been used, it will decompose by itself, causing no harmful trace in nature.
