Fytó, children’s composting

At the moment it is only a prototype, but the idea is so attractive that it has already aroused the interest of some manufacturers. And it is that the industrial designer Clara Fessler has designed a receptacle through which children can see how the food they throw turns into fresh food.

This kit is an authentic window to the cycle of organic life. The container, which is completely transparent, includes soil and seeds, to which you can add remains of organic food waste. This process of composting, accelerated thanks to the presence of some worms, allows to grow the plant that leaves the seeds until it reaches a new edible fruit. In parallel, an app helps explain and detail with the appropriate language that happens throughout the process.

In this way, children also learn the importance of recycling and become aware of the need not to waste food.
