Chlorophyll-film is a new biodegradable material originated from farm waste. It can be used to create a natural and highly efficient mulching film for small-holding salad farms, whilst acting as a pest trap at the same time. The project aims at exploring how new materials and new methods can disrupt the farming activities in small-holding salad farms in a sustainable way, by reducing expenses in pesticides and reusing discarded biomaterial in a circular way.
