" I am really excited and grateful to be a Millennium Fellow. I’ve heard so many amazing things about it and to be a part of this inclusive community is a dream come true. It’s truly an honor, as it provides me a platform to share my ideas, learn, and work with other youths who are as passionate about making social impact as i am. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Greenheart
we strongly believe what you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.
PGH is working to advance SDG 11 (Sustainable cities and communities) and SDG 13 (Climate Action). PGH aims to use the power of social media to encourage and inspire people to switch to a sustainable and a low-waste lifestyle.
Our mission at Project GreenHeart is to create environmentally conscious consumers who are mindful of how their consumption has a negative impact on the environment and who adopt tiny better lifestyle adjustments to mitigate that impact.
The focus, through the Instagram page, is raising awareness by providing related resources; actionable tips and tricks to reduce individual consumption, recycle and upcycle existing products, and reuse consumer goods through thrift shopping and community sharing practices.
As a not-for-profit venture, we create and sell reusable products through our Instagram page. A part of proceeds from the sale are being sent to a local tree plantation ngo, while the remaining proceeds are being pooled back to create new products.
