We want to focus on the single use plastic sachet waste through a simplified reverse vending machine. While minimizing effort on the part of the residents , we want to solve the "collection and segregation problem" of the sachets.

Executive Summary

The idea is to set up simple reverse vending machines at the local sari sari stores to deposit used plastic sachets and get small incentive coupons in return. The collected plastic will then be sold to road building facilities to build plastic roads in Philippines. Among this population, we decided to focus our solution towards the women who run the household and young children.
