TRASH BINS FOR PUBLIC TRANSPORTATIONS

A Peacemaking Project by Rosalinda S.

What is the injustice we are solving?

Public transportations in my town have no trash bins inside. I thought it was only happening in my town, turns out it happens to most of public vehicles around the world. People have tendency to do an easy action. So when there's no trash bin in the car while they need to litter, they would rather tucking the trash in between the seats or throwing it away randomly than bringing their trash until they find a litter bin. No wonder there are tons (I really mean ton as weight, like 220 tons) of waste thrown away at random every year, especially in Indonesia. In rainy days like this, floods are everywhere and diphtheria outbreak is widespread, causing 38 chidren to die by far.

Hi Rosalinda, any updates on your project, please? Do you have a deep understanding of how to solve this issue?

We would encourage everyone who is at this stage of their project to work towards deepening their understanding of the injustice they are focusing on. It would be great to talk to other people in your community and try to understand their perspective or other people who are trying to solve the same justice or/and people who are already working to solve this injustice.
Also, use the problem and solution tree to discover the root causes and consequences of your chosen injustice and it will guide you to more solutions. Here are some resources on how to do that: https://www.peacefirst.org/understand-through-compassion

You would need to get started now to be eligible for a mini-grant. Thanks again for sharing your project with Peace First members, and we are looking forward to your next steps of the project!

Please let us know how can we help.
