Summary

This project aims to raise general awareness and to take meaningful actions in creating a sustainable waste management system in Bangladesh. After conducting workshops in schools, cleaning a polluted lake with 500 volunteers (Banani Lake), and empowering young leaders to take action, this project now focuses on setting up a system of trashcans in all over the capital city (Dhaka). Once successful we then hope to extend the project to the rest of the country.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There is no system of proper trash collection (littering) in the public arena. As a result people are little aware of how to dispose their trash.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project will provide a way and a system for people to dispose their trash properly in public, keep the city clean and will raise awareness about how to further enhance the system of waste management.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project is building a whole system that is most importantly sustainable. It will keep the roads clean and create a greener city in the long run. Through the use of the system, it will also allow people in becoming conscientious citizens who will begin to make socially and environmentally responsible choices in every day life.
