EcoSeed / Food waste disposal system


Think Earth, Make It Green.

Eco-Seed is eco-friendly food waste recycling system which thinks about the nature. Today, significant amount of resources are wasted for collecting and treatment food waste. The food waste that we dispose is a valuable resource which can be a great fertilizer. We can utilize it by this new recycling system. It is a sustainable design that will convert our act of disposing into a progressive recycling mind.

First, it removes salt from food waste so later on it can be used as a fertilizer.
Second, after drying, it grinds the food waste.
Third, it discharges the sausage-type emission(dried, odour-free, recyclable) with a seed packed.

The most uncomfortable thing when discarding the food waste was getting
your hands dirty and the bad smell; the sausage-type emission have solved
these problem by universal design. Throw it away in a garden(anywhere you
want) nearby. After rainy day, a green sprout will come out and greet you!
EcoSeed also provides educational teaching about natural ecosystem.
