Project Summary
Elevator Pitch

Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

Milan is a big multyethnic city in wich coexist many different cultures and as well languages. Starting from this point we notice that many people coming from abroad are not able to follow the wright way to separate the different kind of wast due to the fact that all the explanation are given only in Italian language. The idea is simple, not expansive and fast to actuate: we would provide a multilanguage recycling kit in order to better inform those who not speak italian and improve the recycle in our community.
