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.
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.
