The design company Carlo Ratti in Italy is one of those. It has developed a juice bar to serve orange juice in orange peels.
The process works as follows: After pressing the oranges to extract the juice, you keep the peels rather than compost them. Then, let them air dry. Next, the peels are powdered and mixed with polyacetic acid before being converted to a bioplastic 3D printer filament.
This is how glasses made from disposable bioplastic are created. After use, these glasses are recycled once again.
