Loop / Food waste sorting


The aim of Loop is to empower food waste recycling by turning it into a seamless and encouraging routine. Loop consists of a kitchen sink that focusing on efficiency and comfortability when food waste occurs, and a collector underneath that will collect and maintain the nutrients in the food waste.
The end goal is to increase recycling by taking advantage of the energy and nutrients in food waste, to create a closed loop.
