Biodegradable Pots

KANSO DESIGNS
These durable and natural-looking plant containers have been transformed from agricultural by-products and waste materials. The materials used in Kanso pots come from a mixture of recycled plastics and agricultural byproducts that farmers would have thrown out like coffee bean husk, bamboo fiber, wheat husk. These are combined with other materials like natural stone and wood to completely change the nature of plastics into a biodegradable composite material that can also be recycled, but first check with your municipality to find out how to recycle hard PE plastics, as the regulations vary by location.

Materials
Bamboo Fiber
It is a type of cellulose fiber that is made from the pulp of the bamboo plant. Bamboo is an extremely renewable resource, as it grows much faster than trees, doesn't need fertilizer or pesticides to thrive, and doesn't need to be replanted after it is harvested
Coffee Bean Husk
During the coffee bean hulling process, the fruits are de-seeded and dried resulting in a strong husk. Most of this waste is dumped near the factories, which can lead to methane emissions and environmental degradation. Finding innovative solutions for this material is another way to reduce emissions and create a more circular economy.
Wheat Husk
It is the hard protective cover surrounding the grain. Although it is mainly seen as a waste material that is either ploughed into the soil or burned, we have also recognized it as a renewable resource for bio-based materials with interesting textures and properties.
Coco Coir
Also known as coconut fiber, it is a natural byproduct of coconut harvesting and is a sustainable alternative to peat moss. It is made from the coarse fibers extracted from the husk of coconuts. Coco coir has superior water-holding capacity, excellent air space and drainage, and it doesn't decompose as quickly as peat moss.
Rice Husk
It is the outermost layer of the rice grain that is removed during the milling process. Rice husks are abundant and are a readily available biomass resource that can be used for insulation, fuel, building materials, and fertilizer.
Walnut Husk
Walnuts are the most widely cultivated nut trees in the world, and globally, over 3.3 million tons of shelled walnuts were produced in 2020 alone. Walnut husks account for almost 50% of this total weight, and multiple industries are now looking to make use of them, from biodiesel production to natural fiber reinforcements for composites.
Signature Stone Recycled Plastics
Post-consumer recycled plastics account for 70% of our pots. We also mix in a small portion of stone & wood powder to elevate its natural textures.
