The scientists from Princeton University were looking for ways to restore land that was nearly dead and was so severely overused that any life there barely existed. The result was so astonishing that they could not believe their own eyes. The magic solution was discovered in orange peel waste: in other words, fruit leftovers!
In 1997, 2 scientists from Princeton University started a very ambitious project in Costa Rica. The project started when they approached a juice manufacturing company, Del Oro to donate some of their land to a national park and in return, the company was allowed to dump their orange peel waste. The experimental area looked very dead at that point and it seemed like a very good deal for the company to let go of the useless piece of soil and save a lot of money on the waste disposal.
