The aim is to create functional and sustainable products that have a life span and they should be completely biodegradable. Fabricate plastic based on natural fillers as Egg and different nut shells without toxic chemicals. Have viable products, which decay if you dip into your garden if you do not need it anymore. It’s the ultimate solution for getting rid of things instead of storing them for years and getting rid of plastics, which never decays. These objects and materials developed have the aspiration to educate and enlighten about how and by whom they are made, from which ingredients.
