Solacle / Rack for sun drying

Solacle
Solacle

Although the usage rate of disposable plastic containers has increased due to increased consumption of delivery food, the recycling rate is very low.
The major cause of decreasing recycling rates is because of carotenoids in food that contaminates containers. Carotenoids do not wash off with water, but it breaks down into sunlight. We call this washing method "sun wash."
Solacle is a product that helps to store and “sun wash” disposable plastic containers. By Solacle, the user can form a systematic and proper habit of recycling for the modern environment.
