Merry Farming Kit

The project’s Merry Farming Kit is a mini urban gardening kit that uses plastic bottle caps as planters for bean sprouts. All that’s included are seeds and a compressed piece of soil that fits perfectly into a cap from a PET bottle. It’s a simple idea combining agriculture with recycling, but could be a good idea for brands to take up themselves to promote ecology for packaging after use.
