comparing the farmer’s cultivation work to mass production, roza janusz develops scoby, a living packaging material that follows the process of vegetable cultivation. the material is a membrane that prolongs the durability of a product and can be eaten together with its content or serve as compost.


the production of living packages is a symbiosis of making and growing 

 

 

roza janusz aims at turning packaging production into a benefit for the environment instead of a hazard. scoby is grown by a farmer not only for the production of packaging but also because of the valuable by-product, which, depending on the concentration, works as a natural or probiotic drink. the material is fed with an extract from agricultural waste.


it is a package for dry and semi dry future farmer products, for example: mix of herbs package, instant dish package and seeds package


the edible package is like apple peel, protecting what’s inside


the resulting packaging can be eaten or composted along with its contents!


the living packages are also cultivated along with their content


to grow the packaging, tools are needed similar to those for growing vegetables
