Prompt: To redesign an object or system that is unsustainable and that is causing problems to the community/environment.

In this project I wanted to redesign one of the most unsustainable systems in the community that surrounds me: food waste in restaurants and bakeries. My background in the food industry gave me the means to develop a company that could easily address this problem while creating a new product that could be easily marketed. With most people (including myself) having pets and having to provide them with high quality food I decided to create a product that could meet this demand, making it also customisable based on the client’s preferences. I thoroughly enjoyed creating this project and I am hopeful that I will be able to research further, and maybe develop it into something more concrete in the near future.
