Abstract

Eco-feedback is a strategy to increase awareness of resource use and to encourage conservation. We applied eco-feedback on household food waste with the prospective to increase awareness and explore its impact on food related decision-making. In this paper we present a prototype of an eco-feedback system for food waste, which was deployed in a student house. In preliminary findings, participants indicated positive effects on dealing with leftovers, food preparation and reection about food waste issues, when eco-feedback was deployed. Findings are used for the next design iteration of the concept and, for more concluding results, in a larger-scale evaluation.
