The Gradual Tightwad

unconsumption:

The Grotesque Apple, the Ridiculous Potato, the Failed Lemon.

This great video describes a campaign to, in essence, rebrand the imperfect-looking fruits and vegetables that are normally thrown out, into something special and unique.

Now you can eat five a day inglorious fruits and vegetables. As good, but 30% cheaper. The inglorious Fruits&Vegetables, a glorious fight against food waste.

Watch the video! Very clever!

I love it!!!
