Peelie Bin - Urban Composter
Roughly a third of all the food produced in the UK or imported into the country is wasted. Peelie Bin utilises the Bokashi method of composting; it minimises the odour and mess using anaerobic digestion in comparison to other traditional composting methods (which produce methane that is 28 times more potent than C02) ensuring a far simpler solution for the disposal of all food waste, especially for urban residents with limited outdoor space.
Peelie Bin - Assembly
Users mix Bokashi bran with all food waste in the top compartment of the Peelie bin which filters down to produce a liquid byproduct that is used for plants. Turning food waste into green space. The product is easy to assemble and disassemble using minimal fixings. The bamboo lid with a silicone sealing ring prevents any leakages; it is also a sustainable alternative to plastic. A screw-top lid is a key to preventing any oxygen from entering the bin. This is done to aid anaerobic respiration and subsequent decomposition.
Peelie Bin Service
A combined service design element where the composting container will communicate to the user when the compost and liquid byproduct is ready to be collected and delivered to communal gardens, (However if the user has a small garden they may wish to use it for their own plants). In return, the user will receive a free bag of Bokashi bran as well as an e-token to be used at various sustainable shops or a free trip to Botanical Gardens as a reward for the production of their compost and liquid byproduct.
Peelie Bin - Form
The proposed design features a new way of removing the liquid byproduct from the bin. The bin should be odourless and produce quality compost in just 21 days. Peelie Bin is simple to clean. The exterior handles include a rubber grip making Peelie Bin easy to transport around the home. An all in one easy solution to disposing of all food waste in the home. Turn your Wheelie bin into your Peelie Bin.
Peelie Bin - Details
The inner Composting container rests on top of strain gages. A Bluetooth module is also in this part of the Peelie Bin. When the Peelie Bin is full it will communicate to the user via Bluetooth and the Peelie Bin App that the composting container is ready for collection. Whilst one Peelie internal bin is full another can be filled up and the cycle goes on.

A hardworking and motivated Industrial Designer who has predominantly been working on projects with a sustainable design focus.
My perspective of design has progressed significantly over the past few years. I have become proficient in multiple appliances including the adobe suite (Photoshop, InDesign & Illustrator). I have also gained technical skills through Solidworks (CAD). Also, in regards to rendering programs such as Keyshot and Solidworks Visualiser have enabled me to produce visuals for my current projects and bring them to life. Digital platforms are becoming increasingly popular as they allow us to share ideas quickly and efficiently with fellow designers. Working both in an individual and a cohesive team environment has developed teambuilding and confidence skills which bring a focused and positive work ethic. Collaboration work has been highly important for sharing creativity and boosting presentation skills.
My greatest strength would be the use of the Adobe Suite which has become essential to my working day. Additionally, I am proficient in sketching both digitally (through the use of Sketch-up) and by hand.
My Career aims are to broaden my cultural experiences, meet new people and further expand my knowledge of the world to additionally enhance my creativity. I hope to go into the retail design or interior design field in the future. I have a genuine passion for design and have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Loughborough Design School and am excited to see what is in store for me next.
