The Botany Project | Environmental Cool

This is a Design Indaba share post :). I just love anything that is environmentally friendly...it just speaks to my inner hippy. When I saw the Botany Project at the Indaba I loved it. There are so many facets of cool, like the biodiversity element where they are trying to draw attention to the rare plant life in the Cape Floral Kingdom, which is under threat :(. So what is it...? It's a home accessory product line made by community crafters, using local materials and up-cycled waste that showcases the beautiful flowers of the Cape. The liquid in the jars is actually olive oil! They are so pretty and very cool.
