Parachute Seed / Environment protection

Parachute Seed

Excessive development and deforestation have made the land barren, exposed rocks, destroyed vegetation,and deteriorated ecology, causing a crisis of soil and rock flow after the rain.Vegetation can buffer rainwater, purify the air, lower the surrounding temperature, and promote the biodiversity of the city. The parachute seeds made of recycled pulp are dropped by drones,and the parachute seeds are attached to the umbrella surface. After landing, they will form a net. After rainfall,the seeds can grow faster, increase the survival rate of plants, and improve the nature of the soil. And increasethe water retention capacity of the soil.
