Our project will provide a collection point for neighbors to bring their fall leaves for composting. We have worked with our local schools to establish a collection point and coordinated youth groups to assist seniors in raking their fall leaves. We have arranged for a Master Composter to educate neighbors on the "Whys and Hows of Backyard Composting". Neighbors who compost can take donated leaves to their compost piles and the remaining leaves will be placed in a dumpster for composting at a local facility.

As part of our campaign, we will be contributing time to the weekly bbqs near the train tracks where many live in one of 2 tent cities. We will offer the mats for sitting (there's so much mud from intense weather) and the seed kits for planting in the community garden near the shelter. We will engage in conversation starting with, "What's your name?" We know that homeless people are rarely asked this basic human question. We will track how many people we connect with, creating humanity within our community. Having learned mapping at ESRI when I was with the NYLC, I am planning to show my group other homeless communities in the Capitol region that we need to reach out to. We will also create relationships with the youth by gardening together.

We will host a World Chimpanzee Day celebration, creating a space for neighbors to come together and learn about the connection between e-waste and chimpanzee conservation. We will have speakers from the Right to Repair, Uganda Tree Project, display locally made e-waste art, and provide e-waste collection.

We're inviting global ‘classrooms’ (can be a physical classroom, before/after-school program, extracurricular program, etc.) to participate in a series of 30-60 minute virtual field trips in July, hosted over the video conferencing software, Zoom. Field trips will feature inspiring individuals, from those starting sustainable social enterprises, to grassroots community organizing, to nonprofit leaders in the environmental field. It is intended to invite under-resourced communities into the global environmental justice conversation, and empower students to develop agency and create change starting in their local community.

Ashtabula Area City Schools, particularly the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students, have been working on becoming more sustainable and even created a sustainability committee to address environmental issues in our school and community. One of the big problems the students saw was that there was no recycling program in our school as well as a very confusing community recycling system that needed more clarification. Our school uses styrofoam trays at breakfast and lunch and the students wondered why they weren't recyclable even with the triangle on the bottom. They did not like that hundreds of trays were thrown away and added to our landfill each day! The students in our school, along with their teachers, were able to get a recycling program started in the school and worked with the Assistant Director of Community Services and Planning to get 2 recycle bins donated to the schools for the community to use as well. The director explained to students why some things are recyclable in this area and why they are not. Students will be working on ways to get out into the community to educate the public on what is acceptable to recycle. In addition to this recycling program, students continue to be guests at city council meetings explaining the plastic pollution problem and their new focus is on banning plastic bags in the county by switching to reusable options. (They are working on convincing our school treasurer to purchase reusable lunch trays or compostable options as well. It hasn't happened yet, due to funds.) Students would like to do demonstrations outside of stores, showing the public how to up-cycle old t-shirts into reusable bags that can be used right away in that store. The only down side is that these t-shirt bags do not hold much in them. Our students would like to provide and sell larger sustainable canvas bags, designed by students, to promote awareness of the importance of reducing plastic usage and switching to reusable bags that will help our environment. We all would like to see less bags on the sides of the roads, stuck in trees, and in our nearby Lake Erie and many rivers that can harm wildlife.

At the end of very visible 1st street in Missoula, Montana, we would love to implement a permaculture yard to reclaim the soil and demonstrate the power of plants. We want to hire a local mural artist to beautify the building. We want to build a large outdoor compost system to process urban food waste, educate locals on the power of composting, and give back finished soil to the city. We have big dreams and need some financial support.

Students will reduce paper waste by designing websites for teachers. Teachers will be able to share class resources digitally vs. printing on paper. Students will also design posters for each classroom with a printer to ensure that students select the right printer and settings when printing. Students will also design posters with photos of typically available products at our school that will be displayed at each recycling station to encourage proper recycling.

Our project will create a culturally-relevant community garden and composting system that will enable our Halal food pantry to be sustainable while providing services to our seniors, preschoolers, and other community members. We have already begun cleaning out the concrete lot behind our building, which has been used as a dumping ground for trash. By the end of May, we hope to begin construction on our composting area and lifted beds, using grant funding from programs like Roots and Shoots, the Citizens Committee of New York, and Fiskars Green Thumb Project. At this point, we will also begin providing classes to our seniors and preschoolers, starting with seed germination and basic composting practices. We also look to compost at least 1,000 pounds of food waste by the middle of June, which would be ready to integrate By the end of the summer, we aim to have the composting system fully-functional and the garden producing Zone 7 Hardiness fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs that are free to take home by any program participants or volunteers. For this project, outreach will be done by communicating with the parents of our preschoolers' parents, the seniors, and other members of the agency and community. We will use flyers, Facebook, Instagram, and email. Classes will be held at least once a week.

We wish to begin this project at the end of May. Initially, we plan to build lifted beds and pallet gardens made from recycled wooden pallets. We then plan on planting late-summer vegetables and herbs that are appropriate to our USDA Plant Hardiness Zone (Zone 7). During this time, we will also begin composting, using waste from the rescue and any other waste from volunteers or participants. We aim to have the garden and composting system fully up and running by the end of June. Classes will be held on a weekly basis. We will do community outreach via Facebook, Instagram, and flyers.

Nanotechnology can now reduce up to 98% of carbon emissions in ALL vehicles, Old or new, big or small. XSNano, when added to fuel, makes the fuel (Petrol or Diesel) burn more efficiently. Reducing emissions, improving fuel economy, increasing power and performance and extending the life of the engine. XSNano is available in Australia from Lubrication Solutions Pty Ltd with 25 years in the lubrication industry and an excellent reputation in fuel and oil treatment. Electric vehicles will reduce future emissions in new vehicles. But XSNano can reduce the emissions in ALL the vehicles currently in operation. We do need to reduce existing emissions as well as planing to reduce future emissions.
