KEEP SCROLLING DOWN FOR MORE VIDOES

Composting: Saving our Planet

Participants: Arnav Reddy, Esha Karam

About the project

EXCITEMENT

Our video is about a composting effort that we started at our local temple. We noticed that every Sunday, a lot of leftover food gets thrown away at lunch. So, we started an initiative to divert that waste from the landfill and compost it instead. We got our temple to buy compostable disposable plates to reduce waste going to a landfill, and now we compost every week at the temple.

It showed us how small behavioral changes could have a large impact. Everyone in our community just had to stop for a few seconds and separate their trash, but it made such a difference in the end.

DEATH BY TRASH

About the project

EXCITEMENT

Eco-lution takes on the challenge of pollution by informing people and showing them how they can help save the Earth.

We got to learn a lot ourselves about the problems the Earth is facing and it was enlightening to inform people and make a change. We were incredibly happy when we saw people appreciating and implementing our tips.

About the project

30-DAY ECO CHALLENGE

Participants: YPranuti Kalidindi, Aashrita Nanduri, Aditi Srinivasan, Anushka Sharma, Madhavi Vivek, Nidhi Munikote, Niranjana Kannan, Pranav Kammili, Sumedha Kanumuri, Yashita Banwar,

About the project

Our solution was a 30 Day Challenge. We created a 30 Day challenge calendar with 30 impactful yet straightforward activities that everyone could partake in. Statistics show that it takes 21 days to make a habit, so by participating in this 30 Day challenge, people made a habit of living environmentally friendly. By sharing pictures of themselves participating in the activity of the day, they were able to motivate their friends and families on social media to participate as well. Over we had over 1,000 people participate over the month, and our reach for the challenge went beyond Seattle to many other chapters and other organizations as well. Instead of holding an event where people only participate once and forget, we made a daily impact on people's lifestyles through this solution and began to transform our community.

EXCITEMENT

This challenge was exciting for the team because it was an innovative way to solve the problem. Many times we see people trying to solve the problem of climate change by holding events, physical campaigns, advocating, etc. We instead used the power of social media. Social media has a vast reach, and we capitalized on that to spread our message. Our idea was also simple and easy to implement. It took less than 5 minutes to do the daily task, which motivated a lot more people to participate. We were excited to see how our simple, easy, yet vastly impactful idea would be received by the community, and we were glad to see that it did very well. It was also quite challenging for us because every day, we had to post on social media to announce the challenge of the day and motivate people constantly to participate. We were always on our toes looking for the posts and finding ways to encourage people throughout the month. So overall, it was a roller coaster experience, which we very much enjoyed and also are grateful that we could make such impacts on people's lifestyles and bring changes in our community.
