Abstract

According to www.byui.edu, on average, it costs $30 per ton to recycle trash, $50 to send it to the landfill, and $65 to $75 to incinerate it. The recyclable materials in the U.S. waste stream would generate over $7 billion if they were recycled. In addition to this, the EPA estimates that 75% of the American waste stream is recyclable, but we only recycle about 30% of it. America could be richer in nature and in profit if we properly took care of it. This is where our project comes in. Self-awareness starts from an early age. Our goal is to educate 1st-5th graders of the importance of recycling, and truly showing them that “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. Our vision is to present to students at intermediate and middle school’s in the Chicagoland/Aurora area about their impact to our earth and show them that everyday is earth day; it starts with them. After we present, we would have a workshop which would show the student’s how to make jewelry out of recycled material To start up our project we plan on joining with museums, more specifically the art institute of Chicago. As our workshop will include art as well as improving life on land.
