The Earth could use some climate-change-fighting superheroes right about now to fight the dark forces of pollution and waste, help others, and work everyday to make our world Evergreener. Shady Khalil – co-founder of Greenish, a social business that aims to implement sustainable environmental solutions – is definitely one of Egypt’s top environmental superheroes.
“To us, Greenish was a dream that was born from our conviction that we could live in a world without waste and plastic; a world where we could connect with nature without pollution. We shouldn’t be surrounded by so much pollution that leads to illness. It started out as a dream before other people joined us, then we turned this dream into a reality through awareness campaigns, workshops, and organizing events to clean the Nile and beaches around Egypt from the wastes taking over.”
