A unique plant pot has been created and launched via Kickstarter this week in the form of the Alphapot which is constructed from waste food. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the 100 percent biodegradable plant pot created to reduce and re-purpose waste food.
Alphapot is made from food waste to “grow nature”, Alphapot is 100 percent biodegradable, 100 percent Food Waste Fiber+ Vege Starch + Emulsion, 0 percent plastic (PP,PET…) 0 percent bio-plastic (PLA), “helping to reduce and repurpose food waste in a more beautiful way.”
“We love nature, but realized that when trying to bring nature into our modern homes, they were grown in unnatural environments, with pots made from plastic and other synthetic materials. We wanted a pot for our plants that allowed them to Grow Easily in Nature, so Alphapot was born.”
“We often take food for granted and never think twice about our consumption behaviors, but food waste in particular is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, as it typically ends up in landfills or is sent to incinerators, contributing to global warming and climate change. The vicious cycle that is created from the food that we waste each day is astonishing.”
