Vanessa commented on The First Preflight Challenge!

Great job Gavin!!!

Hello Marj,

Thanks for your comments!

We are using the concept of the double bag, in this case the internal bag would indeed fall inside the outer bag with the weight of the waste. So the user only manipulates the outer bag. We are still working on how we are attaching the bags to the unit so as to increase safety (as you suggest) and at the same time minimise the use of plastic.

Regarding the light metal frame, how would you consider the end of life of the product?


Thank you wind jiang! What I love about the solution you shared is that it indeed limits handling of the possibly contaminated waste.

I'm a bit worried that this level of sophistication would significantly increase cost. What's your perspective?
