Thanks, Marisa A ! I enjoyed reading your insights from Visit to a MRF (Material Recovery Facility). I can't remember from my time traveling in Singapore... do you use the plastic film seals for drinks? If so, did you see any of that when you went to the MRF?


Brian commented on Soap mill

Interesting! I use bar soap at home because of the increased efficiency in shipping, but I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a big fan of it in public restrooms. For consumers who've gotten used to automatic soap dispensers, I predict the hand crank featured in the original design potentially being seen as a "step backwards." Perhaps an automated option would give this old solution an upgrade that would help spur adoption.


Brian commented on Why straws, anyway?

Great insights! I personally am not a fan of straws and have never understood why they were so engrained in our culture.
