By recycling old homework from students, tens of thousands of tonnes of paper can be recycled and put to better use instead of ending up as excess pollution and wastage. Stationary can also be of use to students. This will also reduce the amount of material needed to make non-biodegradable plastic stationary. The paper stationary are in turn biodegrable and will not pollute the earth once they have ended their pragmatic use.
Problem: Describe the primary problem(s) that your innovation is addressing
Excess pollution, active recycling.
Actions: Describe the steps that you are taking to make your innovation a success. Include a description of the business model. What might prevent that success?
Enlisting the help of chosen school's Greenlink Clubs to promote and spread the message of recycling and the existence of this recycling homework to stationary project.
Put recycling bins in conspicuous places in the canteen.
Make prototype stationary as attractive as possible and display them beside the recycling bins in the canteen. This will attract students to purchase the stationary once they have been produced. And will also encourage students to recycle more of their old homework to enable more production of paper stationary.
Results: Describe the expected results of these actions over the next three years. Please address each year separately, if possible
Year 1: Generate and increase interest of students in donating more of their old homework and actively purchase the paper stationary.
Year 2: Extend project to all pre-U schools in Singapore.
Year 3: Expand business into an active recycling company catering to the less-reached residents living in private condominiums, where normal recycling companies do not access to. Also, begin providing paper stationary to less-fortunate children for free instead of selling them.
