Q.

How can I make people separate organic waste?

Zone Madrid | Anonymous added on November 18, 2019 | Answered

Hi! My name is José, I'm a 25 year old Master student in Product Design. For my final project I'm looking toward ways to make people separate organic waste. In short, I would like to ask if you have any information about the topic, is there any information that the general public doesn't know and that might trigger a mindset shift that makes people see that separating organic waste is not that hard. (For example I recently have been separating different tiers of organic waste and I noticed that the bin with vegetable and fruit peels took longer to start smelling bad compared to the bin with cooked left over meat and grease. Another example is that if the bin is allowed to breathe it actually doesn't smell so bad once opened.) Best regards José
