Green dispersal Cup
Explain your idea in details:
The objectives of this initiative are : 1. to plant as many vegetation as possible and to cover for the global warming that has been caused by severe deforestation. 2. to do this planting involuntarily since it will be fitted on all vehicles hence the dispersal and natural growth of vegetation is inevitable. This also means that the rate at which forest is being burnt will be less than the rate at which vegetation will be replaced. 3. To cover the bare ground that has been deforested by 2030. Every Tuesday will be declared a green Tuesday where everyone will post a photo planting a tree and the top ten with the most reach in every continent will be awarded points that will help them to attend what will be termed the save the planet summit to be held twice a year. Online training will also be done to educate people about new development and massive social media campaigns will be run so that everyone is aware of the importance of this project. This gadget will be as innovative as possible and l will only disperse seeds after a particular programmed distance and when the vehicle is moving. The device will be mandatory for every vehicle manufacturing or assembling company. Because most carbon emissions are from vehicles, our first point of call for the save the planet initiative are the drivers.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Our target includes all the vehicle manufacturing and assembling companies because they are the major producers of cars so they must incorporate this initiative in the vehicles. This is the first step towards creating a greener world where every machine producing any form of waste must have ways of compensating its harm to the environment. We expect to plan more than a million trees every month and our impact will be seen by the number of adopters of the cup because once it is installed the dispersal process becomes inevitable.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
We intend to launch the product in August after doing test runs on the various machine and perfecting where improvements are needed. Our plan is to start in Southern and Central Africa since most old model cars that are not environmentally friendly are still in use. The various activities mentioned will be run by community members hance sustainability is guaranteed because they will be motivated by different rewards we intend to offer.
