CHARLES CART­MER STUD­IED HSC DE­SIGN AND TECH­NOL­OGY AT MARCELLIN COL­LEGE RAND­WICK

Q AThe Green Bean Pod Cut­ter is a de­vice that re­moves all plas­tic and foil seals from a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent sized cof­fee pods so that the cof­fee grounds within the pods can be com­posted and the plas­tic or alu­minium pods can be re­cy­cled. I got the idea from emp­ty­ing my dad’s cof­fee ma­chine and re­al­is­ing all the plas­tic and alu­minium used in the pods were just go­ing straight to land­fill, so as part of my De­sign and Tech­nol­ogy ma­jor pro­ject I de­vel­oped this.

Q AI’m in the process of get­ting a pa­tent for my de­sign and hop­ing to ei­ther sell the prod­uct or part­ner with one of the big brand cof­fee pod pro­duc­ers.
