Seed Match / commodity

This is a kind of match ,the combination of the seed shell and wax, which totally comes from natural world and is environmental friendly .
Asian people usually like eating the seeds of helianthus. People eat the seeds and then
leave the seed shells as waste.Actually the material of seed shell is natural match,
So I collect the shells of helianthus seeds, make them dry and mix with wax to create a match. The package of matches is a flower because the energy of match comes from helianthus and the sun originally. It also solves the problem of waste, which is environmental friendly.
