Friendly Mushroom / Expiration date sticker

Friendly Mushroom
Friendly Mushroom

It is important to consume milk, cheese and other perishable food products before shelf life. However, shelf-life marked on the food container is often too small to see, or you never know when the shelf-life expires.
Friendly Mushroom is specially designed in the shape attachable to the container like a sticker. It graphically demonstrates the changing shades of a poisonous mushroom as time passes by, and gives a warning signal to consumers to check the shelf life before use. The changing shades allow the consumers to tell whether the product they see is fresh or not - particularly in the small space like a refrigerator.
