Bioplastic Skin is a biodegradable packaging for meat, made out of the skin of the animal itself.
Bioplastic Skin reflects on society’s meat consumption and the question of waste that follows it.
Bioplastic Skin is a biodegradable packaging for meat made out of the skin of the animal itself.
Animal hides are often considered to be a byproduct in the meat industry and if we make the choice to consume meat it is our responsibility to utilize the whole animal and do it with as little pollution to our planet as possible.
The project also addresses the problem of excessive use of plastic that has become widespread and commonplace. Every day big quantities of plastic packaging are thrown away and eventually end up in a landfill or in the ocean.
Meat consumption and use of excessive plastic are reaching a critical point and it is clear that society needs to rethink its consumeristic pattern. With this project hopefully, a platform for discussion and debate is opened up.
This material should not come across as unsavoury or repellent in any way, on the contrary, the hope is that people can appreciate the poetic gesture of putting an animal back into its skin and serving it that way to people. Bioplastic Skin received the first prize in the prototype category at Forum Design de Paris.
