Green Exchange 

Rightfully Recycled first started with the "Green Exchange" initiative in mind. The "Green Exchange" is a program where members of Rightfully Recycled travel to communities in need where, alongside the citizens of the community, we collect recyclable waste together. In exchange, we provide the community's families with sustainably produced essential goods, thus incentivizing sustainable actions in places where economic choices are largely prioritized.

Webinar: Discussing Sustainable Development to Alleviate Income Inequality In the Philippines

We partnered with an organization called Math And Science To Empower the Rightful Youth (MASTERY) to host a webinar that spotlights SDGs #4 and #13 in the context of Filipino society where income inequality and poverty are rampant. Our webinar featured two guest speakers Aina Eriksson (writer for the Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities) and Shanti Jagannathan (Principal Education Specialist from the Sustainable Development Department at ADB). Through our webinar's facilitated discussion with the guest speakers, we brought about insightful and thought-provoking ideas and generated awareness in our audience, working towards cultivating activism throughout the youth. 

MASTERY X Rightfully Recycled - Project Think Green! 

"Project Think Green!" is an initiative that furthers Rightfully Recycled's goals of using sustainability to empower communities in need. We firmly believe that community growth starts with the youth, a conviction that has led us to start "Project Think Green!" "Project Think Green!" works with MASTERY and Alabang Elementary School (AES) to upcycle plastic waste. First, we gave a lesson on sustainability and recycling to the AES students. Together with AES' students, we then gathered  recyclable waste from their homes and around the school. Afterwards we formed stations for three unique projects, a mini toy car, a pencil holder, and a collage/mosaic made from scrappy flimsier pieces of plastic waste. Each station had a group of students, and each group of students experienced each station. This was an uplifting experience that put the fun in sustainability for young students.
