The majority of inks on the market are petroleum-based which isn't a sustainable means of creating products, so Living Inks has created an eco-friendly ink that's made out of algae to be more sustainable and interactive.

Living Ink works by being used on paper to create whatever artwork is desired. From here, it is placed inside a frame that contains moisture and nutrients and encouraged to be left in the sun. Over the course of a day or more, the algae in the eco-friendly ink will continue to grow and expand on the paper to create something of a miniature garden on the paper.

A sustainable, eco-friendly ink option that will provide a more natural experience, Living Inks is a time-lapse ink that will inspire and delight consumers of all ages.
