packaging as a vessel for growing food
Nikhil Arora and Alejandro Velez are at it again with their innovative and interactive packaging solutions. This time they chose three-piece cans made from steel an infinitely recyclable material, to package all the ingredients needed to grow organic basil or cilantro inside the home. For those who live in a tight space and have been yearning to put their green thumb into good use, this is the perfect solution!
Garden-in-a-Can is sealed with a full panel metal end with a pull tab for easy opening. It's topped off with a bright engaging label which also has a bit of a natural look due to its muted background.
