Apparently, we chuck out a ridiculous amount of usable fruit and veg because we think it may be past its best. Sometimes it is too far gone to eat, but often the food is still perfectly usable. These clever colour gradient stickers aim to help avoid that and save lives (the lives of fruit and veg, that is).

They look like a colour wheel, but the 'lifesaver' stickers have nothing to do with selecting a colour palette for design work (see our ultimate guide to colour theory for that). In this case, the colours match the various hues that each fruit or vegetable goes through as it ripens.
