Still 100 words, but includes input from Tuesday night’s discussion:
Biomedical waste must be properly managed in order to protect the general public, and healthcare and sanitation workers who are regularly exposed to it. However, consumers are not properly disposing of this waste in their households because of the difficulty of doing so.
Creating awareness about this issue and producing a solution(s) heavily relies on the collaboration of graphic design facets including package design, environmental design, print design, and designing for sustainability. This collaborative effort has to persuade consumers to reduce the amount of biomedical waste going into the trash, and needs to meet the standards of all industries involved.
