TURN ORGANIC WASTES INTO BIODEGRADABLE TEXTILE MATERIALS
Cooking New Material is a topic based on a self-developed process which involves multiple procedures that recycle, reuse and turn various organic wastes into alternative, biodegradable textile materials. The seemingly useless food wastes will reborn with a second life. Banana and orange peels or soya milk pomace are combined with a natural binder as a matrix. The resulting composite material can be easily reused even after it is already used in cooking. It is a 100% biodegradable "no waste" natural product that also opens up whole new design possibilities.
