Green ResponsibiliTEES – Web App Developer

The Covid 19 situation has just shown how the recycling and waste sector is not only vital to survival playing a large part in frontline services, with probably the least recognition. It has also highlighted the absolute need for dedication to local supply chains. It has brought light to questions of ethics about traceability of the plastic journey and the responsibility of LAs. Are your recycled plastics being dealt with in a sustainable fashion or are they being incinerated or sent to landfill?

Can you imagine being able to track your recycled goods, arrange collections on demand and know that your plastics are going to an economic and social benefit?

How about pay back schemes to local schools and social groups for their efficiency – so they can flourish, be educated and actually make products and learn vital skills whilst also raising funds from their own community collections.

We have worked closely with Social enterprises in both Africa and India where they see waste as a commodity and educate the future generations by payment of plastic. This has multiple benefits as plastic can be a very valuable commodity for recycling and has a huge calorific value in energy production.

Greenology would like a student to be able to work closely with our Director to deliver a project that we feel has huge social benefits and can be piloted throughout the Tees Valley school network as not only an enterprise but also an education and awareness tool.
