Green December is EEG’s winter recycling project and the last waste management campaign for the year. It encourages EEG student members to collect specific amounts of paper or aluminium 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. EEG successfully completed the final recycling project of the year which was specifically run for its student members. The student members were tasked to collect a minimum of 500 kg of paper, 35 kg of plastic, 50 kg of glass, 20 kg of aluminium cans, 50 pieces of toners or 50 pieces mobile phones. The highest collector in each category is awarded with a certificate while members attaining the target are provided with e-certificates.
EEG received a total of 32 participants who collected a total of 8,395 kg of paper, 57 kg of aluminum cans, 320 kg of glass, 501 kg of plastic, 53 pieces of toner and 200 pieces mobile phones as a part of this campaign. The programme helped mitigate of 34 MTCO2e of emissions, conserved 231 million BTU of energy, saved 50 m³ of landfill space, prevented the felling of 307 trees and avoided the combustion of 716 gallons of gasoline.
