Nature is future. Can we replace plastics in furniture industry? Beleaf is a new material made from mixture of fallen leaves and bio resin.

Long Description

Look around you. Plastic is everywhere, even though human society said 40 years ago that plastics are not affordable anymore.
My project is focused on practical use of garbage leaves from the cities in the furniture industry. If we will believe and use all our powers we can switch from the plastic to the leaves.

The Bechair seat is composed from a mixture of fallen leaves from trees and bio resin made from cooking oil waste. I am trying to find 100percent degradable bio resin, so the seat will be completely biodegradable.

Imagine a tree. Trunk and the branches grows for hundrets of years. The new leaves grows every year and on the end they fall down and they work as a fertilizer for a tree itself. Imagine we can make the same circle in reality of furniture. There is a skelet of a chair, made in a way that it can survive for hundrets of years. Than, we have a seat, which is not so strong, so after year, if it gets damaged, we just brake it and put it under the tree where it disappear in the soil and fertile a tree. Than we pick the fallen leaves once again, and make a new seat.

You just need to beleaf, that there is a way how we can change this world.
