Is it reasonable that it takes several years for a milk carton to decompose naturally, when the milk goes sour after a week? ‘This Too Shall Pass’ is a series of food packages that have the same short life span as the foods they contain. The package and its contents work in symbiosis– every aspect is completely natural and biodegradable. 

Oil package

A package made of caramelized sugar, coated with wax. To open it you crack it like an egg. When the material is cracked, the wax no longer protects the sugar. The package melts when it comes in contact with water. This package is made for oil-based food.

Smoothie package

Gel of the agar-agar seaweed and water are the only components used to make this package. To open it you pick the top. The package will wither at the same rate as its content. It is made for drinks that have a short life span (like fresh juice or smoothies) and needs to be refrigerated. 

Rice Package

Package made from biodegradable beeswax. To open it, you peel it like a fruit. The package is designed to contain dry goods like grains and rice.
