Algae don't need agricultural land, so there's no competition for food.

Microalgae have much higher yields per hectare and are extremely water efficient. Algae can grow on nutrients from residual streams, such as sewage and CO2. The project aims to create a travel kit, usually produced in synthetic materials derived from petroleum, in order to promote the use of algae and demonstrate the multiple possibilities of this new biodegradable material. Coming from a simple cut with a digital cutter, this kit is ultra economical in terms of materials. Because it is mono-material, it is also easily recyclable.

By its innovative use and its composition in algae TPU, this makes this kit a durable object that we want to keep for our next trips.
