LIFE by Sophisticated Youth


Posted on: May 27, 2009

This is kinda cool… Say, your at the park for a BBQ, you just finished grubbin’ down, how ’bout a game of frisbee?? That’s exactly what you can do with the new UFO (unidentified feeding object) eco-friendly plates designed by Andrea Ruggiero for indisposed – an exhibition which invited designers to address notions of disposability in everyday products. Why toss your plate in the trash, when you can throw it against a tree and destroy it?! And by doing so, your furry friends of nature can enjoy the BBQ too. Sounds like a win-win to me!

‘UFO’ is made of a unique composite of blended bird seed, potato starch, guar gum, and a seaweed-like binding agent. The plates are highly resistant to wet foods, vinegars and sauces, yet completely biodegradable, non-toxic, and vegan.
