From a young age, I've always been very concerned with the state of the environment. I can recall reprimanding other kids for littering in elementary school, and continued to alert people to the consequences of such actions as I grew up. Into adulthood, I realized some people simply never grow out of this behavior. The world has only declined during my lifetime and the opportunity to reverse the damage is almost gone. While we, as individuals, cannot achieve this alone, we still have the opportunity to do what we can with these constraints.
A large part of the lack of action is due to the allure of convenience, which is rarely associated with sustainability. Through Tennen, my team and I were able to explore the idea of making sustainability not only convenient, but also applying near-instant gratification routinely to the long-term user journey.
