Seed Bank Helps Make Environment Richer

A special container designed by Marti Guixe motivates people to save seeds from fruits or vegetables instead of throwing them away.

The Seed Safe adds to an already large assortment of food-related products from Spanish designer Marti Guixe.  The Seed Safe helps motivate people to store away seeds from fruits and vegetables that we eat instead of just throwing them away or having them composted.  The innovative tabletop product aims to create a currency in seeds that encourage people to help save them to make the environment richer.  Users deposit different types of seeds into the stoneware safe through its multiple cutouts, and eventually withdraw them to help stimulate our recessive ecosystem.

Guixe explains:

Seeds are in some way more valuable than money. Therefore the seed safe is a must in each home. Keep the seeds you get from eating fruits, and then plant them to become a rich person.
