EDOWA receives Generous Donation from Innovative Students
Over the past few months, a group, consisting of Rossmoyne SHS students Michael Lee, Charlotte Kirke, Chaki Ramesh and Rafid Hasan, have reinvented the second hand shopping experience for a social innovation competition. With the generosity of Riverton library, they were able to test our ideas at the library’s courtyard.
Through surveys of local communities, the students saw public dissatisfaction with low accessibility, fatigued appearance, and questionable cleanliness. In response, their team worked to incorporate many technological and policy innovations to second hand stores to boost the circular economy.
Their store, has thus far proved a successful business venture, promoting an ethical shopping experience, allowing us to get feedbacks on our ideas, whilst raising over $800 for the Environmental Defender’s Office of WA in a few short days. Thank you for your donation!
Their team has entered the Diamond Challenge under the Social Innovation category, an international competition for high school entrepreneurs. We wish them all the best and hope that The Freers qualifies for the next round.
