Rice is harvested in mass quantities throughout the world and is known to be one of the most important food crops in developing countries.
When processed, the husks (the outer hull of the rice grain) are left as a natural by-product and agricultural waste that is usually incinerated due to the sheer volume of it. This method of disposal is a biohazard and extremely damaging to the environment.
Fortunately, there is an eco-friendly alternative which is to recycle these rice husks and convert them into a sustainable, non-toxic material that can be used to make things such as reusable coffee cups.
It is also found to be degradable in a natural soil environment so all rice husk products can give back to the earth when they come to the end of their use.
