Have you ever questioned yourself, how many times you have used a marker before you lost it? My mission was to create a marker with more value. In a time where sustainability is a must and no longer nice-to-have, I think brands need to really consider how design can influence the life of the product beyond consumer use. Therefore, I designed a marker that’s compostable. Printed with bio-plastic and filled with biological inks. This simple detail means that one step is eliminated from the recycling process. The product is delivered in a nice case, which serves as a place to store your marker neatly. In the case you can find a manual with a description on how to make the ink and how to fill, reuse and compost the marker. When the compost process is started, the marker will disappear within a year.
