1,3Ga tonnes of food waste in a year for 720Ga €

 

Actors --> food producer/ retailers/ policy makers / consumers

 

* Producer: waste food because they don’t have the great size/ juice --> waste the pulp

* Transport: products are deteriorated so you can’t consume them

* Stock: if there is a break in the cold chain all products are wasted

* Factory (if there is transformation of food): during preparation of cook food

* Market: esthetical requirement or expiration date

* Consumers: Surplus of purchases or forgot in the fridge

Public:

* Particular : 6.5MT are wasted, whose 20% are still consumable

* Distribution+food industry : 2.3MT are wasted

* Restauration: 1.5MT

* Note: 20% that particular waste still remain consumable

 

Ideas:

* Food --> care about the date of expiration + some help to make food        --> cooking

 

Sub-problems:

* Consumers waste a lot of food

* Industry waste lot of food/ part of product like the pulp of orange

* Waste food involve to waste money

* Not always easy to see the expiration dates on the products

* Surplus of purchases

 

Projects

* App to not waste food

Today we tought about different projects we could do :

Machine in a public place where you can put your food that's going to expire soon and you won't use, the machine gives you a bit of money for that and other persons can buy the food in the machine for a little amount of money

A board game about recycling, each player represents a supermarket. They can buy factories that produce food and they have to manage their production in order to sell their food to the consumers BUT ALSO in order to avoid wasting food. With this game, the players are learning about not buying too much food and to avoid wasting.

A small box that scan the things you buy and the peremption date. So this device would be dedicated to avoid food wasting and will warn you each time you have food that is gonna expire.

 

We realised that our third idea isn't really functionnal, in fact it would take time to scan each article when you put it in your fridge. Also, an app would perfectly do the job and would be easier to use for consumers. So we decided to focus on the machine and on the board game.

We want our target to be the consumers. So, in order to adapt our game to them, we've got to think about why they waste food.

The principal reasons why people waste food are :

-Buy too much (because of the promotions)

-Forgotten food in the fridge (or not)

-They don't look the expiration date when they buy the food

-They buy too much because they don't know yet what they're going to eat

- The players pick their identity card with a budget on it

- Shopping time : the players have to buy what they think they'll need during the week coming considering who they are

- Everyone picks an event card telling them what they'll need to consumme during the day (= the turn)

- If they have enough food for their daily consumption that's fine but if they don't they have to buy the food they're missing at the minimarket (more expensive than the supermarket at the beginning of the week)

- The steps 3 & 4 are repeating 7 times

- After the 7 days/turns, the person that has the less wasted food and the more money left wins

We precise that each time the players buy any food, they have to put it on the fridge that contains conveyor belts. Each conveyor belt has a different speed (representing the speed the food is expiering). At the end of these conveyor belts, the food falls in a trash.

At the beginning, you have to pick a card and on each card you've a family with the shopping list corresponding.

After that, you put your food on the conveyer belt and if you have a fresh food you put it on the first floor and the food less fresh on the second and the food not fresh on the third floor.

Than you pick an other card in which an event is written. This event is going to consume your food. But if you have too much food and if the food on the conveyer belt is at the end of it it falls in the bin.

At the end, the person with the most wasted food loses.

You pick up a card and on this card you have a list of your food that will soon perish in your fridge

So, you put in the order of your choice the food on the stair of the fridge

After, you a pawn and each player (at his turn) is going to launch a dice. With the number on the face of the dice, you move  a number of boxes. You can only move on right/left/up/down, you can move only straight

On each box one or more food are consumed

The goal of the game is to learn how to manage your consumtion of food

The winner of the game is the first person with no food left on his stair, and less food wasted.

- In the board game we understand that it is better to have only one wall because it's hard to see the pieces and to move them in the fridge.

- The board game is fun with the theme with american series, but it's to easier to finish the game (too fast). We need to have more squares with nothing inside so it's harder to manage because if you are on a square with nothing you "loose" a turn and have a turn with nothing consum in your list of shoping list.

- Also, the design of the board game is too big because we need to have a board game with 144 squares if we have the start in the middle. So we are going to have a board game with a triangle forme because their is maximum 3 players and this form will allow more choices.

- It would be better with a budget because people will be more responsible with it.

- We have to manage better the repartition of the food  between the players and during the game.

During this session, we created the board of the game on paper (picture).

We also made pieces of the game with cardboard (picture) and we add a "trash" at the bottom of our fridge (so when the food is outdated it falls in it) (picture).

Finaly we made cards out of paper (picture).

With all of this, our game was ready to be tested and we tried it with other persons from our class (Antoine).

The feedback we had is that the rules are still not very clear and that it would be better if the boxes where food is consumed were better distributed on the board. (more details above)

On the board game we need to have more boxes with nothing

We need to have more boxes with defferent food

We need to have a cross around the start point where all the food can be reached so it's easier for the player to begin the game

Creation of boxes where we can change elements of place on the conveyer belt because on the board game it can be some area where this element can't be consume

The order of repartition of the food on the conveyer belt is random, so we pick a card with in order

During this week, we have tested our game (version 4) with strangers that we found on the CRI. The first man we tested the game with told us that it's a bit complicated to see the pieces and to move them on the fridge because of the walls on both sides of the fridge.

After that, we found a woman that told us that it's pretty fun to have a board game themed with american series but that it is also too fast to finish the game because of the presence of too many squares where you can loose food. (picture : board)

Considering these feedbacks, we'll create "empty" squares on the board where you don't loose any food. With this, it's gonna be longer to don't have food left in the fridge.

Also, we personnaly think that the design of the board game is too big because we need to have a board game with 144 squares if we have the start in the middle. So we'd like to have a board game with a triangle form because their is maximum 3 players and this form will allow the player to choose which direction he wants to take.

 

After the testings, we worked on the creation of our game pieces (food), we started doing a steak on Paint 3D (application of Windows 10) (pictures : Steak & Steak 2) and imported it on Cura to print it in 3D.

During this session we have received our steaks that we started to print during last session but the printing had a problem so the result is not really the one attended but we still can use it. (picture).

Also, we worked on our new board (in triangle form) that we  first draw ourselves (picture) and then we did the form of it on Draw.io (picture) and we add the different actions on the triangles. (picture)

Then, we started creating the newer version of our fridge in cardboard (picture & picture) and we started the modelizing of it on Adobe Illustrator to make it out of wood (picture&picture).

You pick up a card and on this card you have a list of your food that will soon perish in your fridge (in your conveyor belt that is moving).

So, you put in the order of the list the food on your stair of the fridge.

After, you have a pawn and each player (at his turn) is going to launch a dice. With the number on the face of the dice, you move a number of triangles. You can only move to an other triangle near the one you are thanks to the two sides (you can't go back to the triangle you were before) of your triangle.

On each triangle one or more food are consumed (or not).

The goal of the game is to learn how to manage your consumtion of food.

The winner of the game is the first person with no food left on his stair, and less food wasted.

- We tested our game and we understand that our rules are difficult to understand by ourselves but also for the others

- We need to do it again and we need to change several things like the identity on cards or the turn ( how it works).

To reproduce our project,

First, you'll need to use adobe illustrator in order to create the pieces of food and the fridge. During this step, you have to download an image of a cheese, fish, milk, pastas and a piece of beef. Once you have these images, import it on Illustrator and change the scale on a scale of grey or in black and then remove the edges of the picture. (see video) Your pieces are now ready to cut with the laser cutter. Don't forget to create the fridge with three stairs and to create it with the laser cutter as well.

You can now proceed to the creation of the board : use draw.io to create a triangle with little triangles in it. Use this as a model : picture. Print it and then write the different characters on some of the triangles and the food they each consume. (example)

To finish, you just have to find a dice and three pawns.

Your game is ready to play !

Right now, our game has a triangle board. The cards are made of paper and the "fridge" is made of wood. We have six different types of food made of wood as well (cheese, beef, fish, pasta, milk, carrot).

The rules of it are pretty simple :

- You pla
