After doing their research, SLS has investigated the case of continuous burn of rice straw causing the black cloud and contributing to the air pollution problem in Egypt. As the school is surrounded by agricultural lands, SLS team conducted a field study and has surveyed farmers about the produced amounts of rice straw and its uses. They collected samples to start their project: reusing of rice straw and converting it into wood products and antiques to be sold (economic aspect).
In order to master and improve the production process, they have also visited various carpenters and MDF manufacturing workshops before producing their own pieces from the collected samples. Then, they launched a Fb page to market their products.
SLS participants have also considered the social aspect of sustainability through empowering women from the surrounding farmlands and taught them the production process to enhance their living conditions women empowerment, the team gathered with women from the surrounding farmlands to educate them about their project and the production process.
