Through the comments of the users, the concept of this design is interesting. Although causing initially some hesitation while eating at the beginning, users say that they get a strange that don’t get in regular meals. It is what attracts them to want to try it. However most people commented that intially had it not been recommended to them by a friend they may not be tempted to try it on their own mostly due to it’s appearance. Some say that because of my color choices, the bowl doesn’t really remind her of micro plastics that are found in the beach.

So in the next prototypes I would try my best to improve the way it looks to make it look attractive to users. Moreover, I would look for ways to make the micro plastic seem more realistic. In addition to that, I have realised that polyethelane is not biodegradable. Thus, it sounds contradictory that I am trying to solve the problem of reduce plastic in the ocean when using something non biodegradable. Therefore, my material also be changed to something biodegradable. However, judging from the feedback of the users this concept is able to fufill my intentions, so the concept and the composition of the prototype would not be changed.
