When we hear about deforestation, illegal dumping or rising air pollution, many of us simply shrug it off or gripe to a friend about how so many folks out there “just don’t get it.”

But artist and designer Michael Jantzen has a somewhat different response to the world’s environmental woes.

His newest concept, called the Eco-Seed Sowing Machine, would receive a wireless signal when evidence of global environmental degradation occurs and release a small amount of flower seeds onto the ground below.

Over time, the field surrounding the machine fills up with flowers – reminding onlookers about the beauty of our environment and the importance of protecting it.
