Hi Emma, I think this a great idea that could help in minimizing the need for plastic bags and packaging which ends up being thrown away as waste. I agree with Yvette around the cost deterring people from adopting the idea. Another thought that pops to mind is, how do we ensure the quality of the good is maintained and does not pass good for use date before it is completely consumed? I guess this is where smaller packaging helps. Have you given this any thought?


Milena commented on The AirClothes Assistant

Hi David, I think this is a great idea as the reality when it comes to elderly is that no matter what we do to prevent falls, some will inevitably fall and it would be great to see something like your idea help minimize the injury. Is your product extend down to the hip area as that is often broken in impact and the recovery can be lengthy and in some cases not successful at all. It would be good to see if the cushioning can extend beyond the waist. Nevertheless, keep up the good work and congratulations on getting this far.


Milena commented on We should start focusing on glass

Hi Julie, I think that glass packaging as a replacement to plastic is a great idea, however have you also considered any of the disadvantages that go with it, especially around safety aspect of glass breakage and the associated health implications.
