Superb Idea: Supermarket Vegetable Packaging Helps You Grow Your Own

If you've ever been troubled by the number of rubber bands used to tie together bundles of carrots, asparagus, and celery at the supermarket, this post is for you. British art student Ben Huttly's vegetable packaging is 100 percent biodegradable, with the label text created through laser cutting to avoid the use of ink. What's more, the labels are embedded with seeds, so that your supermarket purchase can also result in a homegrown harvest.
