Packaging: snails in snail poop?

Seriously? Packaging from snail poop?

Product designer Manuel Jouvin partnered with Sylvie Pierru, a snail farmer in Picardie (France), to create this “Dejection Molding” packaging. The packaging, used for cooked snails, is created by feeding colored paper to the pre-cooked snails which changes the excrement color and then molded into a container.

During my researches, I pointed out that colored paper has an influence on color snail excrements. In partnership with Sylvie Pierru, a snailfarmer in Picardie (France), we created packagings made of snail excrements and destinated to cooked snails. They are envisaged in the molding cellulose process by replacing recyclable paper by snail dejections.

A lovely expression and use of the full life cycle of a simple little snail.
