That waste ends up in landfills and rot to no use or purpose, even though those moldy, rotten tomatoes you threw out have a very good use and it can be the reason why your garden is so full of bright, vibrant flowers and plants. Obviously not just tomatoes would be a good fertilizer for your garden but food in general. Schools are full of students and a majority don 't even finish their lunches. Even the cafeteria over produce some food that just gets thrown away. That food
I pursued an internship with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, where I experienced wildlife management up-close and personal. I attended The American Conservation Film Festival Workshop in West Virginia, where I talked with filmmakers and graduate students about their work and activism through filmmaking. One of the films highlighted in the workshop was BLANK by graduate student BLANK. I had never heard of pangolins, and yet, there I was in awe over the injustice of their poaching and I was on board with the video straight away. I thought to myself, THAT is exactly what I want to do.
Dedications I’d like to dedicate my project to my family, my mom, dad and sister, who have been with me through everything every step of the way and for having full confidence in me in everything that I do. Introduction I decided to do hydroponics, as I’m really interested in plants and stunned at how incredible they are. In Grade 6 we had spent time learning about how plants function and how they are able to do what they do and that’s when I started thinking. I did a lot of research on the internet and came to a word “hydroponics”. I then did more research and was fascinated with the technique of growing plants this way.
It is a cliché to say I have always known what I want to do with my life, but in my case it happens to be true. I have always wanted to give back, even from a young age I was donating toys and food to families around the holiday season and helping raise money and gather non-perishable foods for the local food bank. I was drawn to the feeling of seeing someone smile after getting something so simple or accomplishing something meaningful to them. When I was considering what I wanted to do with my life I thought of many professions from Veterinarian to Social Worker to our beloved Occupational Therapy. Occupational Therapy seemed to spark my interest the most out of all the professions I was considering.
The putrid smell of Escherichia coli is one that is immediately identifiable to the few lucky individuals who recognize its scent. It is also an aroma with which I became intimately sensitive to as I shuttled petri dishes of the bacterium in and out of an incubator. While my classmates shied away from the task of handling the pungent bacteria used in our recombinant DNA experiments, I took to the task eagerly, anything that would take me one step closer to my goal of researching. I had the opportunity to learn about lab techniques and cutting edge biology concepts the summer before my junior year, in an extracurricular biotechnology class at Northwestern University’s Center for Talent Development. The class, a three week crash course in the
Previously, I pursue my bachelor degree in environmental engineering in Institut Teknologi Bandung. I was actively involved in Himpunan Mahasiswa Teknik Lingkungan ITB (HMTL ITB) that initiates several types of activity. What I like the most is about social activity and spreading awareness about environmental friendly-act. We likely hold the annual event, one of them is named “ Desa Mitra”, to raise their awareness about eco-friendly lifestyle. In this event, we teach people in Cimanggu Village how to treat waste.
Sweetgreen in Schools educates school children on the benefits of healthy food and exercise.

This weekend I had a pretty interesting journey. I decided to put my old grandmother`s house in order and make myself a weekend getaway. This healthy lifestyle has really grown on me and once I think of my old habits, I don`t want to come back. This weekend, next on my list, taking care of that small garden behind the house. I was so excited, my list counted numerous plants, but it didn`t even dawn on me that there are some “rules” to be followed, some policy that we need to respect.
The book applies greatly to my life by educating me on how significant it is to be competent on the subject of pesticides and nature. By reading this book, I have become more aware of what I am doing to take care of earth and will better myself by doing things like recycling and reusing water bottles. For the most part, I agree with Carson on her view and would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about our balance with nature and what pesticides and insecticides are doing to that stability. This book is a wonderful way to educate people, and I think many people would benefit from reading Silent Spring. Overall, I rate this book very good and think it is worth the read.
