There are many attempts by problem solvers to reduce the waste of animals inedible parts during Eid-ul-Azha( The religious event of Muslim community to slaughter animals and share it to poor people). But they didn't succeeded because some suggested to collect meat waste, which is not a problem, in ground reality all the meat is consumed by people or shared to the poor relatives. I am from the same community and not even one piece of meat is wasted, only inedible parts cause the major problem. On other hand some people suggested that all the people should dump the waste in one place, but in ground reality no one have enough time to go for allocated place and dump his animal inedible portion (Which is not meat but can be processed into animal feed or compost) in a large pit.

So we introduced an innovative app ''Animal Trash Cash'' in which people don't have to go anywhere and get paid for their by-product of animal slaughter. Just add the time of animal slaughter and GPS location, our inedible parts collector will be there on time.

We will generate valuable products from it.

What early, lightweight experiment might you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?

On this Eid-ul-Adha we tried to manage a short survey and people were very surprised to have this app in future.

What skills, input or guidance from the OpenIDEO community would be most helpful in building out or refining your idea?

Our team member is able to design android apps and he developed some other apps lately. As agriculture is my academic field of research and we have experts from veterinary science department, we are able to process animals inedible parts into valuable products
