Trash, we can!
A prevalent and undeniable fact is that the lack of recycling in modern communities is harmful both for individuals and the environment alike. Focusing on the refugees’ camps, the misuse of recycling practices encumbers the quality of life. Furthermore, cause of the lack of environmental education and proper motivation, a lot of recyclable materials end up in landfills. An initiative from Lesvos Island has seen up close and assess the environmental and living conditions in the camps. They came up with an idea to develop a mobile application that communicates with a specially designed recycle bin. Recognition and reward system will provide an easy way to promote environmental education and thus resulting to cleaner camps.
