Our Build Day concept is aimed at sustainably supporting small businesses and restaurants in Austin. As a result of the pandemic, disposable takeout container use has dramatically increased at the same time that supporting small businesses like local restaurants has become crucial to keeping local economies alive. Our concept will aim, first, at the design and implementation of a modular reusable container sterilization system. This will allow customers to skip the single-use plastic while supporting local businesses without risking COVID-19 cross-contamination. Our Build Day event concept is a hybrid of real-time system assembly broadcast and virtual community connection with the launch of a small-business dashboard.
