Providing a safe and comfortable home
Comfort - Furniture can be wrongly measured, so the user does not have enough space for their comfort.
Safety - Edges and corners of tables are usually sharp 90 degree angles that can injure people as they bump into it or accidentally fall into it.
Table with round edges
Table with obtuse angles so they stick out less
Comfort - Having a place to store items such as pencils and worktop equipment will allow the user to know where to find their possessions when required.
Safety - When lights break it can get too dark to see the surroundings.
Make angles bigger
Make edges round
Make corners round
Increase the size of a product
Make a product that stores equipment
If a home is to be safe, it must contain products that cause little to no harm whether they are used properly or abused. For example, A table with round edges is safe because it will not cause as much damage as a table with sharp edges. If they want to be comfortable, they should be able to use the product without difficulty or struggle. For example, a chair could be uncomfortable because it does not have long enough legs or a wide enough seat.
Working towards a sustainable future
Provide alternative products with the same functions, but using different materials such as wood, plastic and metal.
Remake products using different materials that are renewable
Remake products using materials that are biodegradable
Many products are made from plastic, and it is non-renewable. This means the product cannot be made/grown over and over again (the supply is limitless).
A lot of products exist that are non-biodegradable (they do not break down naturally in the environment). Many of these products that are thrown away stay where they are thrown for years.
A high-profile activity or occasion
Create propaganda such as posters, leaflets or pamphlets to spread awareness of the event
Sometimes people want a lot of people to attend a certain event so they can earn money, however people don't attend because they don't know about the event - the event isn't advertised properly.
