What is the problem you found?

How might we open up employment options that are environmentally friendly?

Customer / Problem

Many commonly used household utensils aren't biodegradable, which can have negative impacts on the environment once they are discarded. Now more than ever, this is an issue, as sustainability is so important in the face of climate crisis.

What Is Your Solution?

We will create a service that will create and sell wooden kitchen utensils such as plates, cutlery, bowls and baskets. This service will employ disadvantaged members of our community to manufacture the items, opening up valuable employment opportunities. It will also provide an economically friendly alternative for people looking to buy household items that don't have an adverse effect on our beautiful surroundings.
