"There is always something to learn from everyone"
I was born and brought up in the Western Ghat region of India. Hence, my adulation for Ever green forest of Western Ghats, plenty of water falls, Sunset at Sharavathi Valley, and my hometownis never going to fade. As I have groomed in such a wonder of nature, it's now my passion to explore such places around and capture them forever.
I respect creativity and creative ideas, and this is why I think I have joined Open!deo. As most of us believe that this world belongs to everyone, and if something belong to us, then it's our responsibility to protect it and make it a better place to live.
To make recycle process effective and efficient, we have to induce people to participate in the process on their own interest. The recycle process, I mean, to collect recyclable stuff (From home, offices, restaurants, and .etc) and to turn it to a re

However, the only challenge that I see is the cost that's involved in this recycle process (Chain); basically, to maintain the statistics of everyone's contribution toward recycle process. Because when we say a social app, scanning provision for each recyclable material that's involved in the process, and etc. This adds cost, and which might hamper the efficiency of recycle process as a whole. Definitely there is a way out for this, and I’m looking forward for this idea to grow, all the best.

My idea was for those who seek benefit for themselves for the thing that they do. The factories that produce recycled articles (Like Bags, recycled metal & plastic products) definitely need recyclable raw materials. And these factories can offer reward points in exchange of recyclable home waste. Moreover, the strategy for recycling process should be carried out on the case basis, like -Location, what is the stuff that's to be recycled, and what could be the product that can be derived out of a particular recyclable material. So, my idea could be used for some location and certain varieties of recyclable materials.
