Tens of billions of clothes are produced worldwide per year, which means a large number of tags are thrown away because of the limited functionality, becoming the burden on the environment. For sustainable development, we designed Degradable Perfume Tag. the string is made of fiber of plants and the tag mainly consists of tea residue, mixed with lavender and sandalwood powder, which helps prevent insects and eliminate peculiar smell. As time goes by, the aroma gradually evaporates, and the tag will eventually dissolve in the air and disappear, leaving a clean and hygienic wardrobe for people.
