My boy Ronnie turned me on to the "Life Box" and I must say it's truly amazing. I can't wait to ship something to my parents as the would totally dig the "Life Box" for their killa' garden where they also grow organic veggies.
The Tree "Life Box" has redesigning the card board box it contains a selection of tree seeds and their mycorrhizal fungal partners that have the potential to grow into a forest ecosystem. It is up to you to begin the growth process of the carbon sequestering trees contained in your Life Box™ panel.
After planting you can Map your tree Show the world how you're helping to improve your environment and share your experience with your friends!
Life Box creator Paul Stamets a dedicated mycologist for over thirty years had this to say;
"The "Life Box" is a perfect example of a product that closes the loop on a cycle that begins and ends with Life. Once delivered, a regular cardboard box dies at your doorstep, so to speak. The conventional brown box serves only the purpose of delivering a product. And then, at best, it is recycled. The Life Box is not just a box – it is a teaching tool that unfolds into a continuing, life-long experience. It empowers individuals with the ability to sequester carbon by planting trees and making a positive difference. The Life Box has 'legs', or more aptly trees, which will remind the receiver for years to come of their own thoughtfulness and that of the company who shipped it. The shared experience of everyone involved builds a community of those trying to help the planet with a long-lasting, and sustainable solution to climate change."
