Spud Raincoat Begins and Ends as a Plant

Spud Raincoat Begins and Ends as a Plant

The Spud Raincoat by Equilicuá aims to be as educational as it is useful, illustrating the potential of compostable materials that are as effective as their less environmentally-friendly counterparts. The jacket, though indistinguishable from any other raincoat, is made entirely from potato starch bioplastic, and as a final feat of eco-consciousness, can actually be planted in the ground, releasing a concealed packet of seed that will be nourished by the jacket material as it biodegrades. Containing Mediterranean plant seeds contained in Spanish clay balls and fabricated from French potatoes by a German bioplastics firm, the Spud Raincoat is verily a jacket for the conscientious global citizen.
