Helder commented on The Re-Food Movement

Hi Swapna. Just a quick note to tell you that Re-food inspired a similar venture in India - The Robin Hood Army. (http://robinhoodarmy.com/)

Hi Kate! I think this can help us understand a bit more the product's features: http://materia.nl/material/rotterdam-fruitleather/ :)

Hi Kate! I was just amazed with other stories at designindaba.com highlighting the food waste problem, like the Original Rotterdam Fruitleather, which turn 7000 kilos of rejected fruit and vegetables into a new material (fruitleather-rotterdam.com), or the Wonderful Waste Ball, by Tomorrow’s Meatball explorative project which explores this and other future food options (space10.io). There's an amazing range of creative solutions out there to inspire.
