Crowdsourcing Mornings: FoldFlat Food Containers

Geek Alabama Crowdsourcing Mornings

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

For every time you’ve found yourself on bended knee trying to find the right lid, for every second you’ve spent tidying up that one impossibly messy cupboard stuffed full of plastic food containers, and for every moment you’ve found yourself cramming an empty lunch container back into your bag: They made these for you.  They’ve always known that there had to be a better way. After more than 70 years of waiting, they decided to make it happen.  They began working on FOLDFLAT because it was a product they knew would make their lives easier and more pleasurable.

Their prototypes look good, have proven the concept, allowed them to shoot the video, and generated loads of excitement. Success on Indiegogo will see them producing FOLDFLAT by injection moulding with the results being even more spectacular. All of the product renderings you see before you play an essential part, letting them show you what the finished product will look like.  They have created the world’s first origami tupperware, and here are four reasons you need to pledge today!

  1. They collapse to just 2cm or 3/4 Inch (lid included). That’s thinner than most plates – no more messy cuboards!
  2. They pop-up when you’re ready to use them – Patent pending, it’s like no other food container you’ve ever seen before.
  3. They fold down into their lids – Finally, the answer to ‘lost lids’.
  4. They look awesome. How often do you see a container you can honestly say looks great?


As of November 4th, this project has raised around £1,000 of their £70,000 goal. This project only has 35 days left to raise the £70,000 or it will not be funded!  For a pledge of £13, you will get one FoldFlat container and lid.  For a pledge of £24, you will get two FoldFlat containers and lids.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
