We took a plate and a cup and sent them in a trip around the world. This plate and cup will travel from country to country throughout the year. Every month an ambassador/volunteer will be responsible for eating and drinking in this containers. Why? In order to create awareness on the use of disposable products. Is it really necessary to use that many?

This plate will keep track of how many disposable plates and cups it can save. It will be interesting to see which countries use the more disposables. Will it be Sweden, India, Mexico?
Other of the goals of the Plate Project is to share the traditions, culture and recipes of each place. The Plate Project volunteers will be sharing their experiences with us. Follow them here and on Twitter with the hashtag #plateproject
