With the planet’s landfills groaning under the weight of our unchecked consumption, the ability to leave no trace behind has become a design selling point. Young Ju Do, a fashion student at Central Saint Martins in London, devised a series of “compostable accessories” derived from edible, biologically nutritive organic materials. Returned to the soil, the erstwhile jewelry becomes chow for microorganisms, allowing it to cycle back into the food chain. Unlike other biodegradable products on the market, Young’s designs don’t require an industrial composting facility. “The cradle-to-cradle cycle is very important for [the future of textiles],” she says. “This will create a new kind of throwaway culture and a new value for short-term use.” Yummy.
