Targeting aviation waste with reusable meal packaging.

Project Description

CaterRing targets the often overlooked waste within the industry of aviation food. It consists of a reusable meal container that is ultimately recycled at the end of its life. CaterRing reduces embodied energy, CO2 emissions, weight and cost.

We created CaterRing to integrate with the existing catering system and infrastructure - causing minimal disruption and improving our product’s feasibility.
