As I told you before, my projectgroup and I have to create a concept to keep the school clean and pleasant. When I was searching for special, funny and brilliant ideas to clean up, I found an article about the Big Belly Solar which made me very enthusiast.
What is it?
Big Belly Solar is a fantastic system! Because of this clever solution, bins have to be emptied fewer times. Not a little bit, no it goes up to 80%.
The bin generates electricity through solar energy. The bin presses the garbage with this energy. The bin is only gets emptied when it is nearly full. Bins wil never be overcrowded or been emptied when there is almost nothing in it. The Big Belly Solar will help to save money, time and fuel.
Unfortunately, the bin is only in use in some places in the USA currently. I think this area will expend soon.
Why is it cool?
Trash causes many problems in this world. Not just the waste itself, but also the amount of it. We are wasting a lot of money and fuel this time. This problem can be solved in a sustainable way, by solar energy. Sustainability is a trending topic and a major trend currently. I think it is very cool solar energy can provide a better world, on a large scale.
