What is the problem you found?

How might we motivate the public to reduce litter?


Customer / Problem

More than 30% of Australia's agricultural land is considered "severely degraded".

Each person produces approximately 1.5 tonnes of waste every year. However, the public aren't aware of the extent to which their choice to litter impacts the pollution of our world.

What Is Your Solution?

Talkin' Trash is a mobile schools initiative dedicated to teaching young people about the impact that pollution is having on this world in order to inspire them to become dedicated members of community combating polluting at a macro scale (i.e, littering). The program would involve fun educational talks, recycling workshops, excursions and a range of interactive activities. Ultimately, our aim is to have a positive impact on our community by reducing individual and collective waste through each person's accountability.
