One-Time Use Flowerpots 

︎ Creator: Leonardo Tu

This study considers combining bioplastic and sawdust to make one-time use flowerpots. Most of these flowerpots are made for transporting and transplanting plants, and most of them are made with cheap black plastic that cannot degrade or be used again.

To make the bioplastic flowerpots, paper cups and origami served as two models for emulation. Bioplastics are thermoplastics, so the final form was achieved by folding the biomaterials and using heat to stick them together. The flowerpots are strong enough to hold soil and plants, for short term use.
