♻️ Did you know that dye with avocado peels/pits gets beautiful pink shades in textile fabric? Grandma Sita puts together the step-by-step natural dyeing guide with food waste for you to try. 🙌
➡️ Natural dyes, made from food scraps like avocado peels/pits that would otherwise go composted or unused, suddenly inspire creative opportunities that reduce food waste.
❄️ The best way to collect food scraps is to freeze them, and then defrost them once you have the amount needed to dye.
👕🥑 You will need 6/8 units of avocado peels/pits to get beautiful pink tones on unwanted fabric like an old t-shirt, white or light coloured works best. More details are below.
