The idea behind this sustainable rice packaging design is absolutely delicious, presenting a biodegradable option that serves multiple purposes. Frustrated by the overuse of cheap plastic sacks for holding and shipping grains, Warinporn Bussayajirapong looked to traditional Thai methods of storing just about anything.

Thin strips of bamboo are woven tightly together into a basket-like, cylindrical box. The woody grass is breathable, anti-bacterial and durable, making it perfect for this food-keeping purpose. One of the neat and unexpected features of Khaohom Rice packaging is that you can even use it to prepare your meal by slipping the whole thing into a pot or a rice cooker. This sustainable rice packaging concept is a cradle-to-cradle solution that would prove to deliver convenience and quality too.
