A team of researchers at MIT are in the process of developing unique tags that will be placed on individual pieces of trash in the public trash cans of New York City and Seattle. They plan to broadcast the movement of the trash in real time for the public to view. They will also be closely analyzing the movement in order to determine the cost and impact of trash on our environment and economy. Finally we will know where "away" is in our system of disposable products. By making the journey of trash transparent MIT hopes to shift consumption behaviors in consumers and at the beginning of the production stream. The conclusions should serve as a valuable tool in designing products for a less disposable future.
