Waste papers recycling to useful products
Explain your idea in details:
Main objective of the idea is to reduce accumulation of solid wastes in our environment, due to daily population growth in my country there is high waste production also many people have low awareness about proper waste disposal and due to that they leave wastes spreading in the streets which is very dangerous for our health and environment appearance. so when we recycle waste papers to useful products our environments will be clean and safe. Another objective is to make money through wastes we produce, people will be able to dispose their waste papers in one place so as to sell them for recycling process. The main activity will be to collect waste papers in all areas and use them as raw materials to produce new products (toilet papers, note book and other paper products) by following several steps using machines. Also educating people about proper waste disposal.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The expected impact of my idea on sustainable development is waste management for clean and safe environment and health of people. Through collection of waste papers will ensure clean environment in the streets and cities also it prevent eruption of diseases like cholera, typhoid etc .Accumulation of solid wastes may cause floods to occur during rain seasons because when people deposit solid wastes in water drainage systems they block passage of water, therefore when its raining floods occur.We recycle waste papers instead of burning them and cause air pollution which may cause environment and climate crisis.The other impact on sustainable development is employment opportunity people will sell waste papers others will be employed at the company, also the company will sell products to people and produce revenue and pay tax to the government and increase national economy. Measures to evaluate success of my idea are clean environment, proper waste disposal and reduced number of unemployment people in the society.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The plan is to collect waste papers in all areas of my country and produce quality products ( toilet papers, note books etc) then with my team we will distribute products to the market in different shops and supermarkets. In our daily activities people will still produce waste papers so the process will continue. About financing source for now i don't have the capital to start the process, only funds will help me to achieve my idea. I will collaborate with local government leaders street leaders, district and municipal leaders so as to prepare good system of waste disposal in different streets and educate people in the society about proper waste disposal to ensure clean environment.
