EGGPOT / Compostable plant pot

EGGPOT
EGGPOT

In order to meet the nutrients that plant need to grow, people need to repot in time. However it's easy to damage the roots of the plant in this process. EGGPOT is made from eggshell and expired milk. Eggshell and expired milk are rich in a variety of trace elements, which can be biodegraded and provide nutrients to the soil. Instead of taking the plant out of the pot, just plant it into the soil with EGGPOT when repotting. Meanwhile, both materials are taken from kitchen garbage and achieve sustainable use of garbage. Exploring the possibility of "food" in the design and encouraging people to pay attention to kitchen garbage and recycle it.
