On February 23, 2017, the 5th grade had a Hackathon. A Hackathon is an activity where people get in groups and come up with ideas to improve something, like making SSIS a better place.
I decided to join a topic of reducing plastic, because people always trash plastic and waste plastic, making the world horrible. We wanted to reduce plastic so we made a STAR poster explaining how to reduce plastic.
Situation-People are constantly buying drinks that are in plastic bottles too much, and after they drink it they throw it away.
Task-Try to reduce plastic bottle use.
Actions-Posters and signs have to be placed in halls and classrooms to remind people to bring their own water bottles and use less plastic.
Results-It may happen if people reminded other people to bring their own water bottles and use less plastic.
I think it would be sustainable if people would bring their own water bottles or leave one water bottle in their lockers.
Ecology- I think it might be good for the environment, because you're using your own water bottles, and that would reduce the amount of plastic.
Economics-Maybe people might save money.
Politics-Maybe the leaders of SSIS would agree to this plan, because it's very sustainable and might be good for our school.
Culture-It might fit into people's culture if they get used to this plan and if people keep using reusable bottles.
People might not like this plan, however, because they always use plastic and might not like to wash their water bottles over and over, but some people might like it because it's sustainable.
