These biodegradable plates can sprout new pineapple plants

In an effort to reduce plastic waste, a Colombian company is making eco-friendly plates out of old pineapple crowns. These biodegradable plates contain pineapple seeds that can be replanted in your backyard and will sprout in soil. The company also makes sandwich containers and coffee cup sleeves that contain seeds from edible plants like cilantro, amaranth, and strawberry. Here’s how they’re cutting plastic one plate at a time.
