Energy and resources

Organize your home and help keep waterways free!

Water hyacinth is a beautiful and fast growing plant that unfortunately clogs the waterways where it grows. The dried stalks can be used to weave baskets, bowls and plant pots. This helps to naturally control its growth and create a better water flow, plus you can organize your home with beautiful objects made from nature.


What is water hyacinth?

Water hyacinth is a free-floating plant that spreads quickly in tropical waterways. When covering the surface completely, it blocks out sunlight which disrupts biodiversity. Also, local communities suffer as transportation routes are clogged. When harvested, biodiversity is restored and waterways are kept open. The plant itself becomes a resource too. The stalks make a flexible material that can be woven or braided into unique baskets, mats and other home furnishings.
