Vanessa commented on The First Preflight Challenge!

Great job Gavin!!!

Hello Rebecca,
We are meeting this WE to work on it :)
Thanks for highlighting the discussion, we'll make sure to check it out.
We've also sent the project directly to USAID, we're eager to hear from them!

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?
