K commented on Cleanliness is Next to Godliness

I love your idea Sarah! Knowing you, this project sounds perfect and it is so special to connect it to you background. Sanitary public places and pollution are two very serious issues that can have harmful effects on our environment. I agree with you, that if easier access to sanity public restrooms and waste bins are provided, citizens could easily contribute to helping the planet. It is such an advantage for you that your uncle has connections in the city, and can help get your project started. Take advantage of your connections! I do have one question: where would you be getting the funding for this project? Will it come from the government (taxes), or would you hold a fundraiser yourself? I think the project will most likely get passed if you prove that you can support your own funding. Keep up the good work!


K commented on Plants for Happiness

Great idea! I love how you are combining two vary drastic things. I had no idea that plants could help patients with anxiety disorders. You provided research from credible sources that show that you are confident that this project will be successful. One question that I was wondering is where will patients have access to the plants? Will plants be given to each individual patient? My suggestion is that there could be a communal greenhouse at each hospital or rehab facilities that allows patients to spend time in their during recovery. Keep up the great work!
