Bhubaneswar, June 4: A Bhubaneswar based cloud kitchen startup has come up with a unique way to celebrate World Environment Day. The World Environment Day will be celebrated on June 5.

The startup named Woodfire which deals with home delivery of food has decided to present plantable seed pens to its customers.

The founder of the startup, Santosh Choudhury said that the pen is 95% biodegradable and is made up of 100% recycled paper. “We have preferred vegetable plants that produce quick yields such as onion, chilly and tomato. Customers can use the container used for packing of food to plant the seeds. Customers can keep the plants in their rooms and terraces,” said Choudhury.

Choudhury further said that this small initiative would encourage other startups to contribute towards environment. The stratup started its operation in August last year during lockdown and has provided employment to around 20 youths.
