As a project for the fall 2021 semester, our team partnered with Daniel Velez and his company Growly Delivers. Our team is composed of Project Lead Elnur Aliyev and Solutioneer Veronica Chen. Growly Delivers is an e-commerce company that sells alcohol and other non-alcoholic beverages online. Because Growly Delivers operates online, they offer a sustainable business model through the use of sustainable containers.
In spring 2021, Dynamic.RE reached out to GreenLight Solutions Foundation because the company wanted to inform and educate its clientele on making sustainable impacts in real estate. GreenLight Solutions, with the guidance of Dynamic.RE, integrated the company’s resources in the form of a website that was easily accessible and educational to its clientele. Due to the success of the last project, our project partner Masrur Huq became one of GreenLight’s Board of Directors and continued the partnership by presenting another sustainable solution that could be applied to Dynamic.RE. The new sustainable solution was focused solely on short-term rentals, namely, how Dynamic.RE could make short-term rentals sustainable and monitor changes for the benefit of its operators and investors. In Fall 2021, Dynamic.RE partnered with GreenLight Solutions Foundation for a second time. The team of Solutioneers consisted of Vrashab Sheregar, who previously worked with Dynamic.RE in the spring, along with Abby Hemmings, and Huiling Chen.
The issue of hunger has roots in many sustainability challenges. Often, rural communities are facing the consequences of climate change and environmental degradation, regardless of their part in generating it. Communities, like ones in Malawi, are trying to produce enough food for themselves in the midst of natural disasters, resource depletion, and disease. Food insecurity and malnutrition have become a growing problem throughout different areas, making sustainable farming a viable solution.
