Seed of Life / Plants a flower pot

Seed of Life
Seed of Life

More than 40 percent of the earth's land is dryland, and nearly two billion people, a third of the world's population, live in dryland areas. While drought has reduced food production, Seed of Life is a material extracted from crop waste or urban leaf litter that is compressed into a fully biodegradable flowerpot. Burying the seeds underground along with the flowerpot increases the survival rate of crops in dry land. This is a new type of planting method under the premise of alleviating desertification, increasing the survival rate of plants and creating economy to reduce the harm of hunger.
