Plate with fewer dishes / Save Food

Plate with fewer dishes

The food culture of some countries ( such as China ) expresses enthusiasm to the guests with dishes
that look full, so the dishes are generally designed very deep , which is easily resulting in unnecessary Waste.
This plate uses the protrusions at the bottom to subtly reduce the volume of the dishes on the plate, and reminding people to avoid waste. After testing, the newly plate can reduce the volume of dishes by 1/3, which is consistent with the food wasted in a party. And it also maintains the surface area of the plate to express the dishes, showing the hospitality of the host.
