Local distribution using reusable intermediate containers
In the past, food and drink were distributed using intermediaries that had their own reusable containers.

How does this research relate to our Use Cases?
All of the use cases show instances where the product packaging is single-use and where there are no obvious intermediary containers to distribute the product locally.
What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?
How can we redesign the distribution of food, drink and household goods that use one-time plastic packaging so that we design in more multi-use intermediary distribution systems that allow consumers to bring their own containers - and hence cut plastic waste.
