MELIORA - A collection of products made from food waste that explores human interaction with food, namely,
the indoor & urban growing of produce and our after-meal rituals.
A central principle of regenerative design, and circular systems, is as follows: "If food waste can become new
products, then that product waste should fuel new food growth."
The material that I developed over the course of the semester, which I named Mellifluus, is a carbon-sequestering,
fully home-compostable, waterproof & highly antimicrobial material that actually fertilizes soil as it degrades.
