Below are examples of previous initiatives completed by our founders, members & fellows.

SUSTAINABLE FASHION AUCTION

CLIMATE CARDINALS TRANSLATION WORKSHOPS

BUSINESS WORKSHOPS

Led by: ECI Board

Led by: Chloe Young & Georgia Scarr

Led by: Lily Moore, Georgia Scarr & Chloe Young

We hosted a sustainable fashion auction via Instagram which raised over $200 in funds for ECI. The purpose was to educate people about the environmentally damaging effects of fast fashion, and to promote sustainable clothing in a fun, interactive way, whilst raising money for a great local cause.

ECI is partnering with Climate Cardinals to help fulfill their mission of providing environmental education to all by making it more accessible to those who don't speak English. We gathered a group of high school students to translate Wikipedia pages on climate change into Spanish, French, Mandarin & German. 

We are working to aid businesses in transitioning towards an environmentally friendly future by hosting free, personalized workshops for businesses in North America. Our workshops include teaching employees about the intersectional environmental crises, in addition to performing assessments on the businesses operations and recommending how they can affordably change.

ECI's blog focuses on sustainability and youth activism, an educational platform for youth artists and journalists to share their passions and educate others.

ECI has their own podcast, Eco Insights, which aims to educate people on the intersections of the environmental crises, as well as amplifying the voices of youth activists and global influencers, making environmentalism more accessible for all.

After witnessing the large amount of food waste at their school, members of ECI created a composting system to allow students to reduce their food waste, whilst educating them on the impacts of food wastage. This initiative involved over 40 individuals who assisted in running the composting system and that children put the correct items in the compost.

To actively reduce the impacts of fast fashion and the number of clothes going to landfill, ECI hosted a clothes swap where individuals exchanged their old clothes for clothes donated by others at the event.

Members of ECI worked with the British International School of Chicago to ban plastic water bottles at the school, in order to reduce plastic waste and raise awareness of more sustainable solutions, such as Boxed Water and reusable water bottles.
