Enactus Nottingham - Ecologeco Team
Ecologeco was formed in September 2020 with the aim to increase the sustainability of the agricultural industry. In order to achieve this, we will be creating a financially viable supplement to add to ruminants existing feed which will reduce their methane emissions. We began by researching various supplements and calculating the viability of using them as our chosen supplement. Alongside this, we create our unique ‘methane cowculator’ which asks consumers lifestyle related questions and subsequently gives them an estimated methane emission. Following this, consumers can sponsor a cow based on their individual emissions and hence offset their emissions. Not only does this support our project but it also makes consumers aware of the negative climate impacts of their lifestyle.
Due to the nature of our project and wanting to focus on achieving the SDG goals, we decided to use native seaweeds as our supplement, reducing the emissions from exporting the supplement overseas whilst also supporting British companies.
We are very excited to see where Ecologeco will go and hope to see a positive, environmental difference.
