Solution: Bag-It

Target population: young professionals, millennials

Sample size: 10

Interview findings:
-people don't want to hold their cups while at a concert
-people don't want to leave their spots and go looking for a garbage can

Description: Customizable waterproof bag designed for concert goers to carry their waste, specifically beer cans, plastic bottles, and cigarette butts. Freedom to move around with no waste on the ground!!

Process:
1) Person registers online and is informed of Bag-It which they'll receive upon entry at the concert
2) Person receives their Bag-It when they arrive at the concert
3) Person wants to get another drink --> shows their Bag-It and skips the line
4) Person needs to go to the washroom --> shows their Bag-It and skips the line
5) Person leaves --> dumps their waste in the appropriate bin and can take their Bag-It home

3 Key Elements:
** Incentive to avoid lines in bars & restrooms
** You don't have to hold your garbage (or drop in on the ground and step on it!) while dancing
** Lightweight and convenient

Future considerations for Bag-It:
**Design your own bag!
**Apps
**Partnerships with government and activewear companies
