Feedback:

It’s Goodwill’s Mission to help people out of poverty. That doesn’t necessarily have to be your mission. What you have to figure out is; What is your mission?

Response:

My mission to creating the solar oven would be to use items donated to goodwill without the use of much labour, (besides the sorting and packaging), so that people who do not have everyday privileges can basically have a home inside of an unwanted suitcase. I wanted to provide someone with the means to cook their own food, I wanted to give someone independence with just that.

Feedback:

How much would this cost? Who is your core customer? What is Goodwill’s part in this? Are they just the manufacturers?

Response:

The solar oven can be produced for different customers. A solar oven that can be packaged with “as is” items from goodwill, and a simple reflective inner lining, can be sold to customers who have low incomes, or war refugees. Solar ovens that are sold at a higher value target the camping market. These oven would have to be able to work better, and have a consistent set of items.

Feedback:

How will you be able to utilize the space for multiple uses, than just an oven?

Response:

If the reflective inner lining could be folded down, or used as a dividing system for the items your place inside the bag, then the space can be utilized for other items.
