Here's a weird story you may or may not have seen...

A lady in Italy has figured out a way to make clothes from oranges!

And no, it doesn't look like this...


Orange peels are normally thrown away. However, orange peel has a lot of fiber, and she figured out a way to turn that fiber into a yarn, and therefore into clothes...

So who knows, we could all be wearing oranges some day!

(Will wearing oranges help with your Vitamin C levels? Inquiring minds want to know! ;) )

Apparently, the orange peel fiber can also be made into a flour. This can be incorporated into foods like muffin and cakes, perhaps to make it a little bit healthier for you...

Just an indication of innovations happening every day...!

Here's an article about it...

How Sicilian oranges are being made into clothes

Best wishes,
