ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Ripple is a bowl and plate combination made of high quality, BPA free, microwave and dishwasher safe plastic. The bowl is offset and raised slightly allowing for connection and disconnection while holding the bowl’s handle.

ABOUT THE CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN
RISKS AND CHALLENGES
The authors have tested over a dozen ripple prototypes to guarantee that every part works the way it should. The only component that is subject to change is the connection. There might be some small modifications when we go to production.
The 20,000 goal will pay for a portion of the tooling costs, funding beyond the goal will go to the rest of the mold, testing and manufacturing the first order of Ripples. The authors feel confident in their manufacturesrs’ ability to deliver the product they envision.
