Abstract

Humans have carelessly taken the environment and its resources for granted for as long as we have been around. After the industrial revolution, mass production had more priority than the protection of the planet. Every product we produce and consume comes with ridiculous amounts of packaging, from plastic wrappers to styrofoam cups and plates. Many of these products are made to be used once and then disposed of and the effects of the production of these products, such as greenhouse gasses, are causing climate change and global warming. but due to improper handling by waste management facilities many products can end up being dumped into oceans and rivers causing the wildlife to suffer. Here at IMSA, all waste from the cafeteria gets disposed into one bin where it all gets mixed together and put into the same place. Our plan is to provide schools and other cafeterias with a waste sorting bin that allows people to practice proper disposal behaviors. Our product will eliminate environmental pollution by informing the masses of this fundamental issue and help dispose of waste properly by having specific labeled bins. This product ideally would slow the effects of global warming and the deterioration of the environment.
