The purpose of my innovation is to allow for a way to easily wash food storage bags in a dishwasher making it easier to reuse and therefore keeping them out of the landfill.


The method in which I created my innovation was through design, engineering, and testing.


I recorded my observations and analyzed my results.


My results confirmed that my hypothesis is correct. If I design and create an insert that allows plastic food storage bags to be washed in the dishwasher then the food storage bag will be cleaned thoroughly. Therefore this design will help convince people to reuse their plastic food storage bags instead of throwing them out.


I would like to acknowledge all of my experts/consumers.
