Purvish commented on Aluminium caps for water bottles

Good idea of rethinking the material of plastic caps. Why do you think the current caps are plastic and not aluminum or any other material?

Purvish commented on Redesigning the grocery store

Hi Michelle. Good inspiration. Here I have certain doubts regarding convenience. We have one time use plastics because they are very convenient, you use and then throw. When we talk about refilling, no doubt it will save company a lot in manufacturing, but if the users find it tedious to carry the empty container, and that too a different one for all different types of products, will they use it? This will also imply that you will have to prepare yourself before you go for shopping. And lets say I forgot to take the empty refillable along with me to the shop, and since I realized that after reaching the shop, I think people would definitely buy a new one. Now the user will have two empty refills. Thus, atleaast one of them will now not reach the company back. How do you think this will impact the whole circular economy. I think Use Case 1 ( Single use sachets ) can be targeted with this concept. Can you explain using that example ?

Purvish commented on Local distribution using reusable intermediate containers

I appreciate your thoughts. To extend and give a further direction, do you think we can list down all one-time use plastics and then give priority to them considering the impact they have on waste and then think of how we can reduce that?
