Throwise is a new waste disposal system for elementary schools that alters the ordinary interaction between students and waste bins through a game-based strategy.
Inspired by the concept “pay-as-you-throw” which is not yet implemented in Toronto, students will have to pay using Ren, a new currency, depending on the type(s) of waste they produce.
The campaign is proposed to be launched as a pilot run during Waste Reduction Week (WRW) in Canada 2019. The lesser waste students produce, the more Rens they can save, the higher chance they and the winning class will get the reward at the end of WRW.
The aim of this campaign not only helps our next generation make better choice of what they throw but also reduce “throw-it-for-granted” attitude while they are growing up to achieve the ultimate goal of waste reduction.
