Tilly Tote

The Tilly Tote is a flat pack gardening kit built with a nutritious life-cycle and healthy lifestyle in mind. The project made honorable mention in the 3rd Cradle to Cradle competition.
All of the included tools are designed to encourage family gardening and educate a new, cleaner generation. In order to reduce packaging pollution, Tilly Tote was designed with a specific constraint: to be wrapper and packaging free. The fabric of the bag is creased at specific folding points in order to transform back and forth between tote and shipping envelope. The child’s name and shipping address are printed with biodegradable ink directly onto the fabric, giving the tote unique name personalization. 2D aluminum gardening tools are nested together. Specific perforations in the metal make for easy, one-time bending into 3D tool heads! Assembly instructions can be found printed on plantable veggie seed paper. The instructions can be torn along the perforations and planted for home-grown veggies!
