LIFE BOX – Brilliant, Seed-Sprouting Cardboard Packaging!

If you ever engage in online shopping (or even if you don’t), you probably recognize how ubiquitous and space-cluttering cardboard packaging is. But what if every cardboard box you got from Amazon   came embedded with tiny seeds – so that you could plant your cardboard boxes in your backyard and sprout some CO2 sucking greenery? How awesome would that be? Brilliant mycologist cum designer Paul Stamets  has come up with a design that does just that: his Life Box  is a cardboard box impregnated with seeds that can be planted in the ground when it is done being packaging. All I can say is wanna see Amazon adopting this design soon – Amazon, please consider testing out this brilliant idea right now!
