Green Paper - Private Shipping - Disaster Recovery vs. Old Grid living

my personal Notes: While going through some urbanesque (urban-like) survival, some environmental concerns do come to the forefront with Supply Chain. I want to see a less toxic personal home use supply chain that may succumb to extreme loss for a period of 80-100 years with global population growth.

For my private shipping Goals;- elimination of unnecessary weight in cargo
elimination of unnecessary product shipments while natural disasters ensue

Global Initiative Goal:  Make metals recycling of containers & appliances UNNECESSARY in public use.

Vegilogi's Goal: 
Eliminate use of metal cans & related mined materials for daily use food pantry item foods from the supply chain. Replace with least toxic storage option.
  • Shorten Product warehouse storage time on daily pantry items - 
    • Shorten Expiration and move product out of warehouse as "stock" mandatory 2 year minimum on warehouse stored product with 3.5-3.9 year total shelf life from production. 
    • Reduce warehouse storage time on unnecessary food items such as Candies to holding stock for less than 1.5 years
    • Increase warehouse storage facilities for survival goods in cans to 15+ years with more subsidies to warehouse canned food stocks.
  • Shorten Product to Retail Purchase
  • Change packaging for fish, meats, seafood, pet foods, soups - impress dehydrated foods as storage method. 
  • Refocus on hydration supply to re-hydrate such foods - Hydrators.
  • Can be interpreted as moving "healthy/ natural foods"
  • Increase reuse incentive of plastic containers that house dry goods;- supplement powders, grains, dehydrated edible plant matter & other protein based nutritional sources.
  • Promote shipment of personal water filtration bottles & reduce any canned hydration or recreational drink stocks.
  • Reduce number of personal kitchens with pots, pans, and metal cooking utensils. 
    • Reduce public sales of personal use/household metals
    • Increase disaster recovery stock of portable personal cooking burners (solar or gas @warehouse storage) 
      • note:# urban survival burner can: make a 30min heat sourced burner from tuna/pet food sized can with tightly rolled corrugated cardboard inside, minimal candle wax (prolong burn), and long burning wick to start.can be placed in a larger empty coffee can to warm things and trap some heat.
    • implement used/broken pot/pans & utensils collections to prevent landfill burial
The use of Cans - BPA-Free or not should be a "Survival Only item" rather than a storage method for daily pantry items that need short storage. Acid based foods that deteriorate packaging need to be reduced as well.  One of the most pertinent issues then becomes continual transport of non-hazmat goods and use of shipping systems geared towards transport of food/liquids. This is in part to reduce EX-IM liability of potential terrorist threats that could easily be hidden in metal container packaging.
I cannot insure the integrity of entire team that I would have to rely on. I have had to consider the requirements of the goods I would ship. I looked at the US GOVT as a model;- and their requirements are different and allow metal items to be shipped domestically & internationally as single packages with personal liability on the sender.
However, as a larger company;- I would not want to incur that liability of metal items being sent.
China & other nations that take actions against democracies, have engineered plastics to resemble weights, densities and textures of natural materials and also disguised toxins as food ingredients.
My focus has been to set the HULOTOXIGEN standard high. This lends itself to a perishable cargo or a cargo that is not haz-mat or chemically complex of human design. Use of mobile refrigeration container units and their storage could be employed across Grids as plug-ins and singular vending sites (with solar compatibility as a mandatory requirement).
To reduce the cost to the shipper and insure a sufficient number of the units, there needs to be a demand. Current American home kitchen standards do not support this type of business to exist with profitability to maneuver the current economic platform in North America. Globally, this type of business has potential to reach even more remote communities with a sufficient power supply;- even a solar converter, to provide the community with a weekly-bi-weekly fresh food source and cooking station for dry/ preserved foods.  

A more extreme viewpoint (or more living like a New Yorker) that I have concluded so as to develop my company values. I don't believe that every home deserves or needs what has become commercial/restaurant quality kitchen equipment in comparison to food standards from 70 years ago using most famous cookbooks from 1950's7 60's as a basis. The reality of old or uncleaned and thrown away kitchen appliances is the loss of metal resource and landfill space used.

Goal: Eliminate large personal kitchen appliances in private condo/homes
or America (specific): Government subsidies for kitchen appliance use & maintenance (purchase, utility, shipment) of large personal/family kitchen appliances to process & cook foods for families with children.
1. To reduce Shipping Insurance damages and loss of materials/goods
2. Redistribute cost of single person home appliances & depreciation (due to transience and unoccupied time) to support restaurant & convenience and vending services.
  •     Immediate cost of utilities also included in vending/ convenience store products
3. Kitchen square footage can be re-allocated to emergency shelter space without new construction (more for USA/Canada than Tokyo, Japan). Possible to implement Government payment or tax incentive for emergency shelter housing to participating homeowners.
4. Re-organize distribution of refrigeration units on the Grid - Small Convenience stores & grocery. - in power out, Grid power gone.
5. Re-train consumer habit of continual refrigeration for large quantities of sauces and condiments, the beer fridge, cold storage of "power/meal bars" includes installation of solar panels for pre-existing personal kitchen units.

2011 Vegilogi, LLC Product Needs:
  • Reusable &  plastic-flex see through packaging or bulk packaging for fresh or prepared food - oxygenated/ fresher needs to be reusable & strong for units. Vegetables/ Fruits requirements to be - 
    • Live enough to be taken out of the package at point of purchase
    • Stays fresh in H20/water for 3-5 days without any refrigeration.
  • contaminant free: wime barrel style to contain breakages (see through window) buoyancy

America Specific: 
USA refrigeration is mainly used for hydration, frozen veggies (that incur frostbite), desserts, sauces, beer, eggs, milk, Peanut butter, cheese, and incurs a large waste of fresh vegetables & fruits, breads, and luncheon meats & cheeses (speculative due to high volume of sandwich/sub/hoagie shops).
Even without a refrigeration unit in the personal home: Current  (not expired)  liquid  hydration/ Hydrators can be secured in aseptic packaging and reconstituted such as almond milk, coconut milk, soy milk. Non-vegan items could still include high-quality dehydrated eggs for omelettes, crepes, scrambled eggs for personal home use. Dehydrated eggs still serve as a protein source and would cook quickly over emergency burners on a downed grid. Traditional butter keeps out in a covered butter dish at a cooler room temperature and fresh oils could be used if there is still burner/ stove top cooking in the household with use of a thin pizza pan.

   2011 Vegilogi, LLC Product Needs*:  
  • high-quality dehydrated eggs (vegan equivalent)
  • Dehydrated Pepperonis (vegan possible?
  • Science adding oil to a dry parmesean style - mozzerella cheese type protein powder base (make stringy reconstitution) 
  • Spice packet for a dehydrated cauliflower or traditional crust
  • Dehydrated pizza sauce
  • Hydrators:- Requirements;- flavorful for addition to dehydrated proteins & foods, without refrigeration stays preserved in aeseptic packaging or other non-metal & contaminant free packaging.

 *Note: the above products should be able to be cooked on "basic" urban survival burner can
