Paul Stamets has designed and created a fantastic way to help the environment with Life Box. A system that allows seeds to be inserted in the manufacturing process of corrugated boxes.
The Life Boxes are then shipped as normal with your DVD, PC or any other object. Once you received the packaging you can either tear it up and plant it to germinate the seeds within the corrugated flutes, or simple recycle it.
There are no restrictions on the size of boxes that can be produced and the added seeds add no increase to the cost of shipping.
The tree seed mix has been approved by the Department of Agriculture for planting in every state in the continental United States (not Hawaii), and Canada. Al Gore recently used the Life Box to send out his new book ‘Our Choice’ .
