TARRYTOWN, N.Y.—Renown restaurant Blue Hill has added several home furnishings products to its e-commerce site that debuted at the recent wastED London, a five-week event that showcased products from local producers and purveyors.

WastED, a community of chefs, farmers, fishermen, distributors, processors, designers and retailers, works to reconceive waste that occurs at every link in the food chain. With restaurants here and in New York City, Blue Hill created and collected products for wastED London, several of which are now available on its online marketplace.

The Tap Water Carafe ($90) promotes the consumption of tap water, and has two shapes: one with a long neck referring to water from deep underground, and the other a low, stout bottle, alludes to collecting surface water. It is made of earthenware and comes with a stopper.

The Cornwall dinnerware collection ($68-90) was inspired by forgotten mines in Cornwall, U.K., and uses 25 materials originating form the porcelain, tin, silver, lead and copper mines to pigment the handmade porcelain dinner places. The custom designed wastED London chef apron ($75) features a pocket made from leftover scraps from the production of Tilit, the chef and custom uniform company, and each has a small wastED London patch.
