Everyone plays a role in limiting waste through the reduce, reuse and recycle model. In BC, much of the 40% organic waste sent to our landfills (Government of BC) could be reduced, reused or recycled. Furthermore, despite one's good intention to compost, some organic waste cannot be recycled and composted as efficiently and would be better used alternatively. For example, the 5 years eggshells decomposition time can be significantly shortened and better used if grounded for fertilizer or chalk. With an issue at hand, Sivan and Chris launched Shellevate in March 2021 to bridge the gap between consumers of eggs and those who could benefit from eggshells. Within the next few months, we began experimenting and researching different products of eggshells, finding great benefits to gardens and chalk making. Partnering with organizations in Vancouver and driven by passionate high school students, Shellevate aims to repurpose these shells, containing valuable minerals, by creating innovations to positively impact our future generations. In the long term, Shellevate hopes to branch away from eggshells and into other gaps between consumers and beneficiaries, such as coffee grounds, and promoting aspiring students to make their change in their local communities.
