The wastED earthenware water carafe
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.
