Equilicuá has created a raincoat that is so eco-friendly, you can plant it when you’re done with it. The Plantable Raincoat is made out of bioplastics, which are made from potato starch. The potato raincoat is entirely biodegradable and compost friendly!

The design by Equilicuá reads "I was a Potato" on the front of the coat, and also has info printed on it that explains how a potato turned into a coat. Even better, the raincoat has seeds inside of it so that when it is composted, plants will grow. Stats for Biodegradable Rain Gear Trending: Older & Mild
