“Through experimentation and innovation I have developed a form of packaging that is 100 percent biodegradable and recyclable. If the packaging is discarded it will have a positive effect on the environment due to the seed embedded biodegradable paper. The twine used to secure the product and label is natural cotton and 100 percent biodegradable.”

    yeah, sure, let’s save the environment by laser cutting recycled paper, wasting loads of energy in the process…

    Looks cool, but why would I even need a label on my vegetables. If people don’t know what asparagus is, then they are way too far away from the environment to begin with.

    Nice design though…

    another example of design nobody really needs.
    beside the fact that, as peayq says, cutting the labels to shape wastes tons of energy, what’s the real need of this kind of packaging? i don’t know where this guy lives but here in italy you either buy your veggies loose (you choose the veggies and weight them) or plastic wrapped for conservation. this kind of packaging really has no use outside of posh “food boutiques”.

    also scattering seeds around isn’t exactly always a good idea: most of them would be simply wasted on terrains where they couldn’t grow (landfills, asphalt, etc. etc.) or, worse, they could end up infesting wild areas.

    Also, the labeling is simply useless, like 90% of the label’s area is about the label itself, the only “useful” info is the name of the veggie (and yeah, i really need someone to tell me those are carrots)…

    A small craft bag or wrap with a stamp (water ink) will be more useful than this… But nice visuals :)

    looks good but agree that they are utterly useless and create more waste then needed. oh, well. most things do. but, we talking eco here. so rather then go half way, go all the way.

    Very nice design and the label can be composted just like the vegetables.

    This is clever- if not very needful – would make more sense to market it to gardeners and others who would use the beauty of the tags and seeds in their marketing – just isn’t sensible, tho as i said, it is clever and lovely.
