Tokyo-based creative Kosuke Araki draws attention to the problem of food waste with his recycled tableware line. With an ambition to develop a design solution for the conscious disposal of edible leftovers, Kosuke Araki came up with the concept for 'The Anima Collection.'

Consisting of cups, plates and bowls that communicate a minimalist and sleek aesthetic in bold black and with ruffled edges, the recycled tableware line is entirely made out of repurposed food waste. The designer used "carbonized vegetable waste and 'animal glue,' from the bones and skin of animal offcuts." The animal products were boiled, while the vegetables were burnt to make charcoal. The total waste Kosuke Araki used for his recycled tableware collection equated to 315 kilograms in weight.
