Buy Food With Plastic - Today our plastic collection process is manual. We would like to see how this can be automated. An example: Instead of writing number of plastic bottles collected, we want some kind of digital solution. And here the numbers of bottles could be shown on our public web, as well as the numbers of meals provided. We urge you to be creative and innovative.
