This Gadget Eats Your Leftovers to Feed Your Plants, Everybody Wins

by Conner Flynn

Humans are wasteful. We throw away so much food without a thought as to others who are not so fortunate. Well, I don’t have an answer for feeding the world, but this concept gadget wants to take your waste and feed plants with it instead.

Designed by Fanny Nilsson, the Re-FEED device takes your leftovers and it turns them into plant food by liquefying them. It pumps this goo directly into your flowerpots and it is all done from your countertop. Not bad. Just drop in your scraps and a blade chops up the mix and it is left to compost. Just add water and you have plant food.

Your plants will be very happy and healthy with this device around. Not sure if I would enjoy compost smell on my counter, but I love the idea here. The Re-Feed’s plastic casing has been treated with an odor absorbing compound for the smell, but who knows how well it would work. Hopefully this will make it into production so that plants can eat our garbage, even indoors.
