Just imagine if your snack packaging could be devoured upon the consumption of its contents? These Edible Food Nests are part of the Taste No Waste initiative to improve the consumerists habits that are destroying the planet.

The innovative Diane Leclair Bisson has produced a number of scrumptious vessels over the past few years, but this one is centered specifically on the use of tomatoes as the medium for making bowls, trays and baskets. No two look alike, as each has been assembled following the creative processing of the fruit-based material into thick ribbons, thin strips or flat shapes. From there, the Edible Food Nests are crafted into a cornucopia of unique forms, presenting restaurants, catering companies and schools with clever, elegant and eco-friendly alternatives to disposable wrappers that allow you to eat your plate along with your supper.
