Project description:
The crayons are made entirely of kitchen waste: green tea grounds, carrot and beet peelings, external "ugly" leaves of red cabbage and 100% organic soy wax. They are completely natural and contain no artificial colors.
Their non-obvious form refers to the seeds from which fruit and vegetables grow. This shape also allows you to practice hand motor skills – the pencil fits into small and slightly larger hands. The drying technique allows resulted in keeping the naturally occurring essential oils inside the waste, which is why the crayons smell beautiful and additionally stimulate the sensors.
The colors the crayons leave behind, due to their plant origin, are not perfectly saturated. The bag for their storage is a reference to the reusable bag, which is useful when shopping at a nearby grocery store.
