I have found a new hope for the future, one where we actually use one of the great abilities of Mother Nature.
The Envi is a new invention that is in the running for the BraunPrize, and it peaked my interest. Simply, it takes urban waste, in an urban setting and turns it into nutrients that are symbiotically used by a plant within it’s container.
Here’s how they explain it:
Envi, is a foresight urban dustbin, promoting composting from biodegradable waste. The project is based on a social approach. It shows the benefits that we can take from urban recycling. It makes waste into nutritious compost for the plant which it carries and lives in harmony with. The big part of the produced compost can be separated from Envi for usage in other occasions.
This project uses bio-reactive substances based on photo catalysis to accelerate the degradation process of waste, remove bad smells and polluting gas. It is an indicator of human activities on our environment. If the people action is positive the plant grows up, if not it will disappear.
Envi is eco-friendly in a coherent approach; attention was placed on the choice of the materials and their treatment.
This MUST make it into usage, it’s incredible that you can go around an entire town and not see one place (even EVO’s my fav ‘green’ restaurant) sorting waste or using it for good. It’s great to see all of the eco-inventors out there, and what headway we’re making since this ‘green’ revolution. Check out all of the sexy modern looks of this below.
