Shrilk Might Work

I looked for materials that were biodegradable and that might be used for bottle caps, tear-offs, sachets, and coffee cups and lids.

In searching for materials that were biodegradable and that might be used for bottle caps, tear-offs, sachets, and coffee cups and lids I came across the site https://asknature.org/. I typed in my query and the site answered by directing me to Shrilk.

How does this research relate to our Use Cases?

This material might be good for bottle caps, tear-offs, single-use sachets, and disposable coffee cups and lids.

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

Study biomimicry and use the site https://asknature.org/,

Tell us about yourself

I am a graphic and user experience designer. My experience in book design has led me to research environmentally friendly papers. The book Cradle to Cradle by William McDonough and Michael Braungart educated me on closed-loop industrial cycles. I have also been interested in the field of biomimicry.
