Millennium Fellowship Project: Sharing us
Treatment of solid waste. We want to raise awareness of
consequences of our consumption habits in a first stage, then we will take action inviting and training the community to be responsible for these wastes and the last phase is the use and transformation into useful items to avoid the production of new plastics mainly.
The last stage is very ambitious but we are already working on the development of technology and processes to achieve it. It is an example of circular economy.
The idea of this project is to promote the culture of recycling by preventing more generation
plastics and reuse what you already have, with a social and sustainable approach. It seeks to achieve social welfare, improving the environment through recycling. Is a
problem that we are attacking but can have great impact and this is only the beginning.
About the Millennium Fellow
I was born in China, in GuangDong, small city, when I came to Mexico to search opportunities to work, I identified that we had the same social problems in both countries, like contamination, polluted air, a lot of plastic waste and other.
Even though these problems look huge, the solution will be coming with actions that people make.
So if we are helping us, it is helping others, because we are in the same situation.
