Who would make a food container that you can't recycle or compost? TetraBoxes – those metal-lined cardboard boxes that are mostly used for soy milk, soups, and drinks – are frustrating. You feel guilty whenever you use one and just toss it into the landfill. Malyasian designer Ed Chew agreed and looked into ways to reuse these containers.

Chew says of his project, "With sufficient packet drinks, one could even build a spherical pavilion as big as a house or a moon."
