Hello Lauren,

I thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the Circular Design Challenge and was delighted to be shortlisted. Would it be possible to receive some feedback from the judges? This would be invaluable in developing my project, and myself as a designer. Thank you very much in advance.

Kind regards,

Hi Tanya,

I definitely agree that carers need more time to themselves. As a HCA I have seen many people who dedicate all their time and energy to their loved one, which, whilst being a beautiful thing to see, understandably and easily has a detrimental effect on them. What they need is time - guilt free. How can we give it to them? This is the challenge.

Hi Marissa,

I think that your product is interesting. I was wondering if the soap products would be harsher on the skin than the liquid version. I work in a hospital and the soap we use can be damaging to the skin if water isn't applied first. Have you thought about this concept being applied to household products such as washing up liquid? I think this could be very effective in reducing plastic waste as, similarly to shampoo, a considerable amount of these products are made up of water. Keep up the good work!
