This Mount Pleasant community event features our Industrial Design student projects about food waste.

Students in the ecoTANK third year Industrial Design Core Studio have been looking at how to facilitate re-using common household food waste through design.

The students will be showcasing their projects at Neighbour Savour, a sustainable community event that takes place on the evening of Wednesday, October 19. There, they will have a chance to speak with the public about their research and promote a ‘second life’ for everything from egg shells to pomelo peels.
