Amazing things Milan's made
Up till now, I have founded What A Waste. Abbreviated: WAW. With WAW I have built one prototype so far. It is an ecologically friendly bamboo recycling bin for indoor. This is the project that I am applying for as well. For a further explanation on how this works and how and why it is designed, please have a look at the product description section in the next chapter of this questionnaire.
The company is brought to life because the founder [a sustainably oriented citizen] noticed there was a lack of information for inhabitants of cities on how to live their daily life in a sustainable way. If that ‘sustainable’ citizen is not even clear on how to separate his or her waste in the right manner, how would other (less-) sustainably oriented citizens become motivated on separating their waste? WAW is taking this step for them, and making waste separation easy to understand and motivates them to do right.
