Which sustainability component will your lesson focus on?
The main sustainability component employed was nutrient recycling, with an emphasis on composting and recycling.
What related problem/issue will you present?
The problem is that there is too much landfill dumping and not enough recycling or composting.
What supporting facts characterize the problem?
The first fact is that there is more trash in the ocean than aquatic animals. The next fact is that trash put in landfills just piles up and takes many years and in some cases never goes away. The final fact is that with composting or recycling the resources that we are done using can be used again either in the soil or in another useful way.
What solution will you offer?
The solution is a decrease in landfilling and an increase in recycling and reusing. Many of our everyday items can be reclycled such as aluminum cans, paper, plastic, and glass.
What action or actions do you want people to take as a result of your lesson?
As a result of my lesson, I would like people to go home and apply what was taught. This means we want people to begin recycling whatever possible and compost so that nutrients go back to the earth.
Please attach any supporting audio, video, images, files, blogs, links, graphs or other related to the problem or your solution?
