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

Participants: Harish Jaisankar, Oviya Jaisankar, Kaavya Karnati, Hrudaya Kishore, Shruti Satish

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

We as an Austin team have decided to address a simple, yet a very important problem in front of us today. How best to properly dispose off our own daily trash/waste? is by providing education early in life and bringing the change in one's own behavior to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle For Earth.

EXCITEMENT

the project we took-up is exciting to our team because it is practical, sensible, easy to implement, scalable and over the time will have a maximum impact by Reducing, Reusing, Recycling For Earth.
