Peel Saver, ecological fries packaging
Fries companies produce a lot of potato peels waste. The idea of this project is to use this waste material in order to create a street food packaging. The potato peel is made up of starches and fibers components, which after maceration and natural drying, acquire the ability to bond with each other and harden. The obtained material is completely made of production waste and is 100% biodegradable. Fries are thus served inside the same peel that originally contained and protected the potato. After being used, the packaging can be usefully re-inserted in the biological cycle becoming animal food or fertilizer for plants.
