Plantime / Sustainable Calendar

Plantime

Plantime is an eco-friendly calendar that gives city dwellers an easy access to contributing for the environment. The material used in Plantime is made of 100% recycled biodegradable eco-paper with waste coffee ground and plant seeds. We chose seeds of plants that grow within one month. By planting the used sheets, users can intuitively see the results in the following month and get the idea that small actions like this can make such positive environmental impact. And this bonding between the plants and the users encourages them to engage more in the sustainable development of the cities and communities they live in.
