“Green December” is EEG’s winter recycling project and the last waste management campaign for the year! It encourages EEG student members to collect a minimum of 500 Kg of paper or 15 Kg of cans within a given time period. The aim of this programme is to remind the youth of the importance of commitment, persistence and responsibility in green practices as the year comes to an end.
In the previous year (2017), 11 student members collectively took up on the challenge and deposited 101 Kg of Aluminium Can, 6,247 Kg of Paper. This contributed to the mitigation of 34 MT of CO2e, conservation of 289 Million BTU of energy, saving of 36 m3 of landfill space and the prevention of 106 trees being felled.
