Explain your idea in details:
The main objective of Recycle Campus is putting emphasis on waste management on a creative note. We will be treating a waste product as a valuable one by paying a reasonable amount for it. The idea is to create an organized sector where our company, Key Resources such as artists, pickup and delivery people etc. and our customer segments come together. Key Activities include logistics which will help in transportation of products, various equipment for recycling, advertisement for initially attracting customers, human resources etc. Innovative approaches may include running a campaign or advertising in such a way that we can educate people about this major problem of waste management and how to overcome this. Please read the business model for further details about the plan
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Impact of this idea on sustainable development includes Responsible Consumption and Production, Climate Action. Our planet has provided us with an abundance of natural resources. But we have not utilized them responsibly and currently consume far beyond what our planet can provide. We must learn how to use and produce in sustainable ways that will reverse the harm that we have inflicted on the planet. Research shows that a whopping 91 percentage of plastics are not recycled. In household sector, nobody has the time, money or resources to recycle plastics or the resources they use. Our plan is to take the household "resources" considered as "wastes" and recycle them for a sustainable production on sustainable development. Not only Plastics but we can also take various other household items like newspapers, cardboards, bags etc. in order to reduce land pollution, air pollution etc. We may make an innovative product which we can use in daily life or just as a decorative product by giving it an artistic touch. Climate change is a real and undeniable threat to our entire civilization. The effects are already visible and will be catastrophic unless we act now. Plastic not only poses an immense pollution, it also exacerbates climate change. When waste decomposes, carbon dioxide and methane gas is created. Thus, rubbish sent to a dumpsite or landfill represents a significant amount of greenhouse gases already emitted to the atmosphere and have contributed to climate change. The only possible solution in this regard is to recycle by minimal or no use of natural resources. Also, Our company will hire people which will give employment in sustainable development

Hello, I am Dhruv Kalbalia Idea Owner of Recycle Campus Age - 15 years old Youth Category - Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition I am currently a school student from India whose interest lies in technology and entrepreneurship. I noticed that there is enough production of resources that is needed by us but the main problem is we do not utilize it and indeed throw it away. It's the same case with plastics and other household resources. It is indeed very difficult to replace those completely because in most cases they are cost-effective and durable which attracts many. The solution is to RECYCLE those in a very simple and innovative way. Yes, I agree that we are doing it but there isn't any organized process or system that is involved. So, I thought of Recycle Campus - Recycle today for a better tomorrow. I am from a middle class background Motivation is to serve our mother Earth and be some kind of a help to other people. Qualities - Leadership Qualities, communication skills, skills in terms of technology, zeal to learn something new and develop continuously.
