Non-Compost, Non-Leftover Food Reuse: TourDeFork

Non-Compost, Non-Leftover Food Reuse: TourDeFork

An orange in our home goes through four phases: it's counter decor until it's chosen to be eaten; it's peeled at that same counter, and the fruit is ingested. The peel sits there a while, maybe an hour or two, and then that very peel is thrust into the backyard, willy-nilly, to (supposedly) ward off neighborhood cats. Oh, how I wish we had something like this instead.

With TourDeFork's forthcoming designs, and orange peel will become a room diffuser. An apple skin will become a sourdough starter aid. Coffee grounds? Refrigerator refresher. And all in such gorgeous, minimalist designs.

These are the kinds of things that we could imagine easily working into our green lifestyle. What do you think?
