ECO canister

 

Italian company compagnia-imago have launched a Kickstarter project to bring an eco friendly 35mm film canister to market. 

The campaign, called 'Do you wood film?', aims to get a completely organic canister produced. 

The canister is made from PLA (polylactic acid, polymer derived from common trees and crops like corn and beetroot) and wood fibers. Two different kinds of wood canisters will be available - natural and bamboo. The natural wood canister will house ISO 200 / 25EXP film while the bamboo canister will hold ISO 400 / 25EXP film. 

Even the packaging that the film comes in is totally organic, and each roll of film also comes with a corn seed, which you can plant and give back to nature what it took to build the canister. 

It is hoped that the canisters will start shipping in February 2016.
