Aryel commented on Garbage. Recycling. Food Waste.

Ahmed thanks for your comment! organic waste isn't a widely used category, most municipalities offer recycling, garbage and yard waste, which doesn't allow for food scraps. 

Devon Faller great info! I agree that there are definitely some issues to work out in terms of cost and collection. As you mentioned though, I believe this system has the potential to have a huge impact because it doesn't require huge changes in user behavior, but instead builds on the existing notion of what can be recycled. 

Love the idea and the designs! I was just out in my garden this morning thinking about your idea, what will you do for homegrown or farmers' market food?


Aryel commented on Integrated and Visible Food at Your Home

I love this idea! I was thinking about how for myself one of the main issues is I don't even remember what's in the fridge/cupboard. I was wondering if you could expand on, "Eliminate incentives to get the products into private households in the first place." It seems like eating out/take out creates a number of issues of their own, including takeout waste containers.
