roza janusz's scoby is a packaging material that grows like vegetables

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.
