The Greenhouse Effect
The Greenhouse Effect is our mission to establish greenhouses on college campuses around the country. Many colleges already have greenhouses, but are not useful to the students who attend them. U.S colleges generate 22 million pounds of food waste. Many people today are struggling to put food on the table, thus being very scary for the future. Through greenhouses, we can reduce food waste by growing what we would like to eat. Americans waste $165 billion on food each year. Cafeterias on college campuses are producing too much food for the students. With the Greenhouse Effect, we can save food and money and include possible incentives for students. One incentive is setting up farmers markets at the campus and allowing the students to sell what they grow. As of right now, the University of Scranton has a project set up that donates all foods made in the greenhouse to charity. Students in programs involving The Greenhouse Effect could be put into programs that allow them to donate the different foods that they make to local soup kitchens. There is no doubt that with this idea, students would become more in tune with the environment and be able to grow their own fruits and vegetables in their future.
