Re:ground / Cosmetic


RE : Ground is a biodegradable cosmetic container.
Starch and Seed are the key component to bring the container back to soil and to bring back to life.
When the container is emptied, users plant it.
The body would naturally break down to the fertilizer, so that the seed can flourish to the plant ingredient for cosmetics they used.
RE : Ground provide users an experience of cycle, not only recycling. To conclude, our final goal is make the public to participate in recycling and experience cycling of resources through RE : ground.
