About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

My project could address many problems: - youth unemployment: unqualified staff is needed for the collection of plastic waiste. (in Italy youth unemployment is higher then 30%) - environmental issues: plastic waistes are 100% recycled, rather than pollute the environment - accesible price: thanks to the low cost of production on the long term, the price of design products can be accesible to everyone.
