Tomato’s Home

Tomato’s Home aims to address the issue of food waste in producing countries like Nigeria with their design that can prolong the freshness of tomatoes, one of the most common crops in Nigeria, by five to six days. Inspired by cacti, quiver trees, South-American grass cutting ants, desert snails, and the respiratory system of crickets, this team utilizes local materials in their design of an energy efficient and sustainable tomato storage system.
