This project has changed a lot over time. Our first solution idea was to use stainless steel cups instead of paper, but after meeting with faculty, we have come to the conclusion that this will not work due to the fact that Windward does not have a dishwasher.
One of our other solutions was that we would implement wooden forks instead of plastic forks. This also would not work due to cross contamination.
Our new solution is to get rid of plastic ketchup and soy sauce packets and replace them with reusable squeeze bottles. This would vastly decrease the plastic waste that comes from packets of soy sauce and ketchup. After another meeting with faculty, due to unseen reasons, the spread of corona virus, this has been deemed not that safe for this campus. this has forced us to reconsider our solution.
