algae urn by Dong Bo Cai, Yu Ting Huang from taiwan

designer's own words:

An urn that not only uses bone ash to provide nutrition but also absorbs carbon dioxide and sun to subsist. Improves the environmental disruption that caused from the original funeral and brings extra benefits. Algae urn is under the condition of cremation. Cremation can reduce the waste of land resources and environmental pollution. But algae urn can also make full use of the bone ash and give back to the environment. Algae can use these resources and convert them into electric power and additional products.
