iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

GreenCircle is a service system targeting kitchen waste recycling and food consumption. This composter is designed to convert kitchen waste into portable organic fertilizer. When delivered to a community collection center, the fertilizer is exchanged for reward points. All the fertilizer is later sent to organic farms to produce safer and greener food, which is in turn supplied to the community store. With their reward points users can buy organic food at lower prices or even spend a day at the farm. GreenCircle not only signifies the recycling process but also bringing together farmers and consumers.

The idea behind this project is good but can be developed in greater detail. The proposed service conceptually addresses the problem of waste, involves the community through gamification, and promotes a circular economy. This is a more sustainable proposal for the treatment of household waste.
