Ecology with Andrea Ruggiero

NYC based designer Andrea Ruggiero has created his own disposable UFO—Unidentified Feeding Object that is. Ruggiero is bringing eco consciousness to the backyard as he introduces a vegan disposable plate which doubles as a bird feeder after use.

The plate is made from potatoe starch, a seaweed binding material, guar bean gum and birdseed, wich is encrusted on the back of the plate. After your meal, feel free to throw the plate like a frisbee and watch it shatter. What’s left is anything but a mess, but rather a small treat for all the local woodland creatures!
