Got orange peels? Got a winter bonfire!


We, at L’Ane Vert, are all about upcycling and recycling as much as possible. And because we’re located in Morocco, we find ourselves with lots of local oranges to use… and reuse! This comes at a perfect time since we need some Vitamin C intake as we’re going into winter!

After offering freshly squeezed orange juice to our customers, we take the orange peels down to our compost area where we lay them to dry in the sun.

Some of the fresh ones are also reused to make natural cleaning products (find the recipes here).

Once dried, orange peels, or citrus peels in general, can be used in many different ways!

We decided to use them for an awesome, cosy, nice smelling bonfire where guests and the team alike joined in for some live drum music and a good time.
