Re-grow your vegs

Food waste has become a huge problem in Sweden; we throw away app. 26 kg food/person/year. The production of this food has a negative impact on climate change. It is important to reduce food waste in public as well as private consumption. As for myself I do no longer throw anything away. It may seem difficult at first but after some practise you’ll figure out how to re-use left overs etc in new delicious ways. Did you know that a lot of vegetables and fruits can re-grow themselves if put in water? Madeleine Nelson, student at Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm, and producer Designtorget has presented a tool for re-growing vegs like leek, salad and lemongrass. I’ll try this one out at once! Nice!
