Qianshang commented on Cala-Ketchup (Tiny Calabash shape Ketchup)

Hi Kate,
Thanks for the comment and link, which is valuable and inspiring. I also think if my idea can corporate with Biobots, becoming the fast growing calabash's packaging planted in restaurants, is it even more interesting?
In term of the end-to-end process, I still need to do more research in order to make the user's journey and stakeholder map. But I have a general idea in my mind, I could make a quick draw before the deadline of the idea process if it is necessary.

Calabash is an interesting plant. Chinese has used it as a container more than 7000 years. They naturally become hollow when they aged. After harvest, people can drill a hole, then obtain the seeds inside by sharking them. And the seeds can be used for eating, planting or making soap, etc. Therefore, using calabashes will not produce any waste.

At last, I still have no plan for partners so far, but if I can be fortunately selected to the next step, I will try to cooperate with some companies or organizations to create a healthy system for Cala-ketchup. Thank you.
