Many of the previous and ongoing projects looked really interesting so I hope to come up with one that is up to par with the rest. Here are some of my ideas:
- The EPA recently came out with a label for environmentally safer chemical cleaning products called Safer Choice. The chemistry behind these products make it so that they are safer for the surrounding human and ecological health. I would like to asses OWU’s cleaning supplies to see what types of cleaners are currently being used and if it is possible to transition to a safer alternative, possibly the EPA’s Safer Choice products.
- I would also like to build upon my fraternity brothers, former students, pee project and evaluate its applications for fertilizer and other uses and possibly expand the project into a composting and fertilizer research.
- Lastly I have an issue with what the OWU trash service does with recycled bottles and cans. I witnessed recycling being dumped into a large trash bin behind Ham Wil, I would like to investigate if that is common practice and start a campaign to collect recycling and transport it to a recycling facility.
