Planted Ice Lolly Sticks / Ice lolly sticks

Planted Ice Lolly Sticks

When children eat ice cream, they throw the ice cream sticks away as garbage, which causes a certain degree of pollution. What is more, a lot of wood is wasted in the process of making these wooden ice lolly sticks. So we designed this plantable ice lolly stick. There are very small plant seeds in the interlayer of the ice lolly sticks. When frozen, these seeds are dormant and do not grow. But after children eat ice cream, even if the ice lolly stick is thrown away, the wood part of the stick will degrade, and the seeds will grow and germinate, and eventually grow into plants.
