Every day, millions of pounds of food are sent to landfills around the world, but one fashion designer has come up with a clever way to remove some of that uneaten food from the waste stream. London-based designer Hoyan IP [2] turns leftover bits of food into belt buckles, buttons, and other useful accessories. The “Bio-Trimmings” [3] line raises awareness about global food waste issues while doing its part to prevent food waste from entering landfills.
