Soon you might not need to worry about wasting your food — you could just turn it into leather instead. Undergraduate design students in the Netherlands have come up with a new, eco-friendly process that converts leftover fruit and vegetables into durable, leather-like material, possibly strong enough to be used for car seats, handbags and other products in the future.

The project, Fruitleather Rotterdam, began as a school assignment at Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, tasking students to set up a flash retail event. After brainstorming, the group of six decided to focus their work on social issues at the same time, and tackle the widespread problem of food waste.

"The academy gives us a perfect view over the Binnerotte Square in Rotterdam, where they have a market each Tuesday and Saturday," Hugo de Boon, who focuses on spatial design, told Mashable via email. "We saw how the square would be completely littered with food waste [at the end of the day], so ... we realized this was a problem we would want to solve from a designer's point of view."
