Reduce, reuse and recycle. The three R’s that form the cornerstones of responsible packaging. Now it looks like ‘consume’ could be added to the list thanks to Wikifoods, Inc. (After a brief flick through our thesaurus, we failed to find any suitable synonyms beginning with R.)
The edible packaging experts have collaborated with New Hampshire-based Stonyfarm Foods to produce Frozen Yogurt Pearls. Each pearl contains a portion of frozen yogurt, encased in an edible strawberry, coconut or peach skin.
The skin’s made from natural ingredients and is washable, just like a fruit skin, and although the pearls still require a degree of packaging to contain them in freezers, the bags are made with a wood-based film, not plastic. Time to save the planet, one bite at a time.
