“Sun match” is a design of match applying the primitive material in nature into the creation of articles of daily use, which is environmentally friendly and reduces waste. The matchstick is made from the hull of the sunflower seeds. After dryness and proper processing procedures, the match can maintain burning for a longer time. The outlook of the matches is also a sunflower, and the act of drawing one petal is also the process of striking a match. In addition, it keeps the original form of the seeds and makes the most use of the resources. After burning, it reaches a perfect unity with the environment and reduces waste.
