ReCytrus is a project where we take discarded citrus fruit peels from already-used lemons, limes, and oranges that would otherwise go to waste and re-use them to make a 100% all-natural household cleaning product. This cleaning spray has been tested to eliminate 99% of the bacteria on a given surface. Canada has a significant food waste problem and therefore, through this project, we aim to repurpose food waste and turn it into useful products that can be consumed in households.
A portion of the proceeds from our food waste reduction project will be redirected to address food shortages and inequalities in our local communities. Our hope is that this project will be able to raise awareness of reducing and repurposing waste, as well as improve our local impact on sustainability initiatives.
