Designed by Hwang Jin wook and pals, the Seed Bomb have come up with a plan to combat deforestation and desertification of land in a similar fashion. It involves a bomber aircraft and charges full of the Seed Capsules. Essentially the project involves artificial dispersal of seeds over arid areas where natural vegetation has lapsed due to man-made follies like deforestation leading to desertification. Each capsule contains artificial soil and seeds, and are air-dropped over the selected regions.
Housed in biodegradable plastic, the artificial soil provides nourishment and moisture to the seed; till it grows out to be a strong enough plant to sustain itself. As it gets mature, the plastic capsule melts away, leaving a future tree!
