The Human Seed Project / Product concept

The Human Seed Project

By using chitin extracted from the remaining by-products of shrimp and crab to make a new type of ashes box—The seed of life, we hope that after the death of a person, We can mix their own ashes and tree seeds into the box. Seeds will be provided with the necessary nutrients; at the same time, we hope to change the people's memorial mode. We will replace the existingold model with a new model (breding trees). Transform the existing funeral model of wasting land resources into a new model
of cultivating forests for a more sustainable future.
