Millennium Fellowship Project: Small Business, Big Impact
Small Business Big Impact aimed to improve the improper disposal of trash and recyclables in local Atlanta businesses. We created models called “Disposal Displays” which was a glass box consisting of the recyclable materials based on the establishment’s products. A waste audit was later conduced to measure the level of impact of the "Disposal Displays."
About the Millennium Fellow
I am third year Public Policy student with a focus on Health and Environmental Policy from Alpharetta, Georgia. Fun fact--I have a twin! She also attends Georgia Tech, but she is studying Neuroscience. My passion for sustainability roots from the campus and it initiatives...and my love for bees. I am slowly but surely becoming waste-less by quitting straws and other single use plastics, reducing meat consumption significally in order to reduce my carbon footprint, and adopting biodegradable and cruelty-free produces into my daily life. Additionaly, I love being kind to everyone, especially to Mother Earth.
