    • My “lightbulb”
    • Reduce environmental footprint
    • Ecological benefits
    • My Thesis: In order to enact change, I will contact local colleges about their problem and help them to initiate change by first informing them of the ecological and economic benefits of recycling and composting and then by helping them set up separate bins for different waste and making signs to inform people on how to use the bins.
