Naman commented on Following a Condiment Trail in Downtown Detroit

Thanks for sharing these interviews and your insights, Leah! It's truly astounding to see how essential these small-format plastic items are in our everyday experiences, to the point where we don't even notice these items around us.

The whole idea of mobility and how our societies are always "on-the-go" could be a part of the problem. Maybe in addition to redesigning the satchets that our condiments come in so they don't generate waste, we also need to rethink how we deliver the same experience to consumers and working it into their lifestyles.

Thank you, Kate Rushton ! We're excited to be a part of this challenge!

He loved the initiative! Our conversation about the challenge got him to share his previous job experiences and tell us about how this has the potential to be so impactful in both Detroit and the world!


Naman commented on A Circular Economy Requires a Circular Language

Great insight, Rachel! And so very true! Walking around the city a couple of weeks ago I overheard a conversation where someone was eating from a to-go box while walking in a group, and she said "Could you go grab another fork for me please?".

To think how easy it is for people to gain access to these small-format plastics and like you said, how it's become such as essential part of people's lives is truly astounding.
