Kevin Huang is a student at Monash University who has designed “BinIt! – A Compostable Bin“. Kevins design offers a sleek product that encourages people to compost their food waste at home. His presentation provided a useful example of the different stages of sustainable entrepreneurship, talking about his experiences in designing a new product which has yet to fully commercialised. Kevin’s project is an outcome of the VEIL project, a collaboration between design academics and their students to realise sustainable outcomes in universities across Victoria.
