Industrial designers Altino Alex and Savin Dimov have just unveiled an innovative product geared towards helping families around the world reduce their food waste. The Bubble Food Tracker is an app-controlled food tracker that monitors products in your kitchen, keeping you aware of what you have in stock and your regular consumption habits, all to bring you closer to a zero-waste lifestyle.
Food waste is one of the world’s most pressing issues. In fact, according to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, approximately one-third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year (around 1.3 billion tons) gets lost or wasted. And unsurprisingly, its fruits and vegetables that have the highest wastage rates of any food.
Thankfully, ambitious and eco-conscious designers are beginning to put their thinking caps on when it comes to helping us all reduce our food waste. Industrial designers Altino Alex and Savin Dimov have just unveiled the Bubble Food Tracker, an innovative concept that makes it easier and more efficient to truly have a zero-waste kitchen.
The Bubble is a smart, user-friendly and app-controlled tracker. When food items are placed in its capsule-like container, the information is sent directly to a smartphone. This way, people know, at the touch of the screen, no matter where they are, just what food products they already have in stock. The system is designed to take the guessing game out of shopping, enabling shoppers in the moment to avoid buying what they already have at home.
Additionally, the Bubble regularly registers your eating habits, keeping track of which food products are consumed the most in the household and what is often left behind. This helpful tool allows families to work together to become more efficient about food shopping and to teach children about the true cost of wasteful food habits.
