Design studio Forest and Whale created edible food containers from wheat husks taking recycling to the next level. Edible or fully composted Reuse containers with lids are perfect for takeaways. The Green design idea offers a creative way to cut down the number of single-use plastic containers and add fun to eating experiences.

The wheat husk is ground into smaller pellets and then, with the addition of a small amount of natural binder and water, pressed within two metal molds at high temperatures. The container is suitable for any food, but it is designed for salads as the material gets soft quickly. Reuse can hold a salad with dressing for a couple of hours, and then it will slowly start softening and losing its shape.

Green design by Gustavo Maggio, edible food containers with lids

Parts of the wheat husk container can be broken off and eaten. The bowl features four small precut lines that let a user tear off pieces of the container and use them as eating tools. Both the container and the lid are compostable, but the top is not edible and takes longer to decompose. The new design presents original, eco-friendly products that fully biodegrade in nature.
