ETE is a dinner plate made in Sourh Africa,and sold in the Netherlands.
On ETE, one can see how much one should eat according to the guidelines of the nutrition center,so people in the Neterlands will be persuaded to eat how much they need,peple in South Africa will be given an opportunity to earn their own money and to be independent.

In the Western society people eat too much. This results in overweight, approximately 51% of men and 42% of women in the Netherlands are considered overweight.People eat increasingly behind the television or the computer, too fast and without really tasting the food consciously.The other side,Third world countries face food shortages.People with disabilities, like aids, do not have opportunities to work as they are rejected. No work means no money which means no food.Annet Bruil considers this as an interesting phenomenon and decided to solve those problems through design .

The ETE is a dinner plate on which one can see how much one should eat according to the guidelines of the nutrition center. It is made from high quality porcelain that can be mined in regions in South Africa, and sold in the Netherlands.

Being made in South Africa,Those people will be given an opportunity to earn their own money and to be independent.Furthermore profit of the sold dinner plates in the Netherlands will directly go back to the South African community. Also the Netherlands and the Western society will be persuaded to eat how much they need.

ETE deserves attention as this project solves two problems which are combined in one product
