I am not very educated around recycling issues. And I realized that when waste recycling labels get too complicated, I tend to trust the behaviors of my peers, by mimicking which bin they have used to dispose of something.

What if communities identified unsafe public spaces to re-appropriate them and transform them into safer ones? This is what a group of women in Argentina did in a square in the neighborhood Barrio Hipotecario.

Great idea Jes! I really like how you thought through the user experience. One suggestion on how you could prototype this and take it to the next level is to use a simple prototyping app like POP (https://popapp.in/) which allows you to take different drawings or screenshots and link them together so you can users try it out on their phone. This would allow you to get feedback on how to improve your idea from real users (even better if this is happening in real-life situations, so you could start by testing it out with friends/family in their respective homes).

Hi Caitlin! Thanks for sharing this great inspiration! Really gets me thinking of how to face this challenge when more systemic processes (e.g. recycling at the city level) are not in place.

Hi Richard, interesting post! Any chance you could find an image to go along with it? Images help grab attention and tell a story with higher impact. You should be able to use the Update entry button on the right of your post and follow the instructions to add images from there. We know occasionally people have issues uploading images so let us know by hitting the Feedback button at the bottom of most pages of our site if you face any problems. Looking forward to seeing more of your inspiring insights on OpenIDEO.
