Hi Hannah! First of all thank you so much for your thoroughness. This is impressive and I really appreciate it. There's a lot to unpack in your message and it's very very useful to have this sort of analysis at the early stage. All the challenges you've pointed out are absolutely relevant. And as an individual it's hard to tackle them all. The testing problem and the portions problem are still pending. But I've created a small storyboard explaining how people can be engaged and encouraged to use it (in the ideal world). About the funding it's even more complicated for me. But I was imagining this system as a part of a whole re-branding process of the store. For instance if the administration decides to try a more "conscious" strategy, with farm local products of high quality (and as a result higher prices) and less food waste, it could be a good addition as the regular customers would buy less and the higher prices wouldn't be that scary for them. This is just one idea. But recently Adisa Adeniyi suggested his expertise in this field, so fingers crossed.. :) I hope I answered at least some of your questions. I would be very happy to know your other thoughts and ideas on this. And thank you again for your comment
Thank you Eric! You are absolutely right, knowledge is power. As "the moral problem doesn't exist for many of us before someone has pointed it out". As pretentious as it sounds :). And I also think that we waste so much not because we're irresponsible in majority, but because we don't have a habit to think about it a lot.
