Understand how this idea collaborates with the completion of Objective 4- Quality Education.
I have developed different shapes of separating the waste correctly, is an educational proposal, the difficulty of many people to correctly discard that it no longer uses, is a problem of lack of containers for separation of discards and lack of education.
One of its main functions of this proposal, is educational, is to allow everyone to get in the habit of separating the waste correctly.
The shapes are inexpensive, easy to access and use, they demand for space according to volume of waste and availability of the place, stimulate the good habit, which of course, is taken to other places, this habit also stimulates other good habits.
These ways of separating the materials we discard are extremely educational, because they also allow us to see better what we are discarding; reduce garbage production; allow greater reuse of discards; avoid waste; stimulate conscious consumption; allow the discards to be sent to appropriate locations in less time and at a lower cost to be recycled.
With the commercialization of what is discarded correctly, we can obtain values proportional to the cost of construction and maintenance of 280,000 schools, with the initial cost of R $ 5 million (approximately 1.5 million dollars) per school.
I remember that these values can be at least 3 times greater if we consider the values of profit with the transformation of what we discard in new products. And if we take into account the economy with the losses, profitability increases even more, and we will have more schools, more education, more quality teaching and learning.
What we discard may turn out to be school material and accessories used to generate knowledge.
I have an elaborate proposal to insert the use of the Recyclable Resource Collector through schools. The proposal is to encourage the correct disposal, through the possibility of using the Collector of Recyclable Resources, or other ways of separating what is discarded. The Recyclable Resource Collector is accessible to all, enables the task of separating discards. The idea is to make teachers of different subjects, to carry out tasks in the classroom and to the houses of the students, involving the separation of what is discarded during the class is in the period in which the students are out of the schools. Tasks can be applied to any age group. Tasks can be essays, calculations, data, scientific experiments, artwork, and others. Through these tasks students and their families can get into the habit of separating correct discards. In this way students, and those who live with them, can become accustomed to discard everything separately, generate less waste, generate more resources, rethink what they consume and think about reusing what they discard.
Another step in the educational proposal is to create educational centers in companies that produce the industrialized models of the Collector of Recyclable Resources. These teaching centers focus on basic education and advanced teaching in the areas of business activity, such as production process, logistics, administration, law, environmental management, technical design,...
One observation related to the goal is that until today, we have "educational" campaigns, which say, "throw garbage in the trash". I think it is more appropriate to say, "separate what you discard so you do not produce garbage". The Recyclable Resource Collector is useful for any educational campaign related to recycling, health, education, environment, job creation, innovation,...
Understand how this idea collaborates with the completion of Goal 3- Good Health and Well-being
The completion of one objective collaborates with the completion of another ...
Garbage, which is the mixture of the materials we dispose of, contributes to waste and loss, poverty, hunger, pollution, global warming, bad conditions of human health and the health of the environment. It pollutes air, water, the food chain, and other basic elements for the live. Proliferate diseases and contaminations, besides generating other damages to our survival. Most of the epidemiological diseases and other diseases that are significantly harmful to health, have a relation with the trash in its origin.
With the correct disposal we have less poverty, reduced hunger and better conditions in the environment where we live, as a consequence we have conditions to have better health and more quality of life.
It is also valid to consider that the income of 1 year, only with the correct disposal, is proportional to the cost of 20,000 hospitals, with capacity to serve a population with more than 30,000 people. Costs involve the construction, installation of modern equipment, medicines, furniture, maintenance, water and energy bills, payroll of all employees and others.
This number of hospitals can provide care to 600 million people in one year. Dedicating income to the construction of hospitals, in approximately 12 years and possible to have quality hospitals, with immediate care, to all human beings. Let's say ¼ of the income goes to health, in less than 50 years there will be hospitals to every.
Improving health and quality of life reduces costs to hospitals, and the need to use due to good population conditions.
Discards correctly also promotes, immediately and constantly, a pleasurable sense of well-being. It's a good deed! This pleasant sensation is frequent during the days, and habitual, it promotes immediate benefits to health, activates the hormones of happiness, and other mentioned benefits.
I have an elaborate proposal for the use of the Collector of Recyclable Resources in hospitals, with an interest in providing this good feeling to patients, and promot the habit of separating discards from patients and their companions, as well as from employees and their families. Hospitals are also sites for educational campaigns, and the idea is extremely educational and health-related.
Understand how this idea helps with the completion of Goal 2 - Zero Hunger
Agriculture and food production drives much of the economy, the transportation, energy production, water consumption, industry, and other sectors are directly related to food production.
Food waste negatively affects the quality and cost of natural resources and many other sectors of the economy, especially food quality and cost. When wasting food, much more is being wasted, and more pesticides are used.
It is estimated that about one third of food production are wasted. And the greater volume of discarded material that comes to be mixed and turns into garbage, is organic, are food.
The correct disposal, done from the harvest to the final consumption is necessary, so everything can be reused and destined to the correct place more quickly, mainly to those who go hungry.
Many of the foods are discarded under conditions of consumption or reuse as fertilizer, which can contribute to higher and better quality food production, and biogas.
With foods that are unsuitable for sale, but fit for consumption and properly separated, we can provide healthy food to everyone who needs it. Only with the share of wasted food being reused can we complete goal 2.
There is no reason to lack food with such a large production capacity.
Another great importance of correct disposal of food and that when mixed with other recyclable materials, the dirt degrades and devalues recyclables, requiring greater consumption of water and energy in the recycling process, and when mixed with the environment pollute the water, produce pollutants, feed bacteria, affect the climate, agriculture and hunger.
With the income that the separation of discards can promote, together with even more worthy and prosperous jobs, people will have better conditions to feed themselves, poverty is a great limitation in meals.
Understand how this idea supports the completion of Goal 1 - No Poverty.
Natural and financial resources are invested in the production of what we consume and part we discard.
Mixing what you discard is to produce garbage, is to generate the loss of what has been invested. They are financial losses, to health, to air, water and climate, ... many of them irreversible.
By separating the waste, we maintain the integrity of the materials, accelerate the screening process, generate resources, avoid waste of time, natural resources and serious financial and environmental damages.
The average value of 1kg of recyclable material, separated and practically clean, is R$ 1,00. With more than 1.4 trillion kilos produced in the world, we can have R$ 1.4 trillion per year (in accordance with the current monetary restatements, 350 bilion dollars), only with the correct disposal, which increases if we take into account all recycling process, the transformation of new products, and generation of jobs.
Income that circulates by all social classes, and enough to in a few years collaborate with the completion of all 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
The Recyclable Resource Collector collaborates with the completion of all 17 Sustainable Development Goals due to:
1. Promote environmental, economic and social benefits
2. Having an educational purpose, naturally promotes awareness of sustainable consumption and the habit of correctly discarding the recyclable or non-recyclable resources.
3. It is affordable and easy to use, is for all humans, is for any place and for different demands.
4. Relate and collaborate with everyone and everything.
5. It can be implemented in any idea, in any activity, by any person, rich or poor, in any campaign involving recycling, sustainability, quality of air, water, climate ...
6. It is simple and efficient, it makes the whole recycling process simpler and more efficient.
I hope that the collaboration of the Recyclable Resource Collector is easy to understand at all. Access and track content for more information.
