What is the larger global issue that you are examining through the lens of laundry? Would it be sustainability issues?

The larger issue we are examining is: Inconvenience of current laundry processes (in highly populated areas) in terms of energy/resources wasted and unsatisfactory methods dealt with when using public laundromats throughout the world.

I’m sorry but I am still not clear on the global issue of this topic area and your focus. I think this is an interesting topic area and your team could focus on energy & water waste and take a focus of sustainability. Or you could focus on the larger issue of space constraints in urban centers and focus on the issue of dealing with laundry in space constrained centers. Or you could look at an issue of health and how important laundry is in staying clean and healthy and analyze the issues that affect people’s ability to effectively clean their clothes. But trying to look at sustainability and health issues and space issues all at the same time could be too much for the team to focus on.

Please try and clarify your topic area and post a comment that clarifies how your team has decided to frame your topic.

We have chosen to focus on the larger issue of space constraints in urban centers and the issue of dealing with laundry in space constrained centers. Sorry about the confusion.

No problem! That sounds great! I suggest that you do some research on Europe and India. There are some interesting ways that they deal with space issues and laundry.

I will make a category label for your group: Space Constraints & Laundry, please use this category label every time your team uploads a post for this project.
