Everyone recycles, but is it really as effective as we think? This talk details the dysfunction of the recycling system, it’s effect on the environment, and what we can do to make a change. Vanessa is a member of the St. Mary Catholic Secondary School TED-Ed club.
Vanessa is a grade 10 student at St.Mary CSS. This is her first time on the tedx stage, and she is very excited about the opportunity. Her first love is music: she plays 4 instruments, loves composing, and is in her schools band. Her second love is writing: poems, songs, you name it. Most prominently, she likes to talk (probably too much) which is why she wanted to try her hand at a ted talk. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
