After weeks of tripping over all the blue disposable masks, a graphic designer in Utrecht came up with the idea of a 100% biodegradable face mask with flower seeds embedded in it — simply bury for beautiful bee-friendly blooms!
Make the world bloom with these biodegradable seed-fillled face masks
Here’s a novel opportunity to make bees happy and give something back to nature: 100% biodegradable face masks with flower seeds embedded in them, ready for planting.
The woman behind the idea, Marianne de Groot-Pons, graphic designer at Pons Ontwerp visual communication in Utrecht, the Netherlands, says on her website:
“In all the years that I have been working as a graphic designer I have also soiled the earth with designing for printing and packaging, so I wanted to give something back and at the same time the subject ‘Wandering and sinking disposable plastic and the ban on it from 1 July 2021’ is once again in the spotlight.
After weeks of tripping over all the blue disposable masks on the street, I woke up one morning to the idea of a biodegradable face mask with flower seeds in it. Earth happy, bees happy, nature happy, people happy. I sell the mask under the name Marie Bee Bloom. Bloom the world!!”
