Rebirth of chopping board / green chopping board

Rebirth of chopping board
Rebirth of chopping board

In China, wooden chopping boards are a necessity for every family. But if the board is not replaced for a long time, it will breed a lot of bacteria and viruses, even flatoxin.
The solution: use a composite material that will fade after six months of exposure to remind to replace the cutting boards in time.
The same time, a tree seed is added to the cutting board. After the board changes color, simply leave boards in the soil and water it . The discarded cutting board degrades into seed fertilizer, allowing the seed to grow back into a tree.
Let Abandoned chopping block Merges into nature again--A perfect return and rebirth!
