BEAUTY FOR A CAUSE: My “Beauty for a Cause” project is the alternative use of Rice hulls (rice husks) in the construction of wood laminate floors in order to decrease their polluting effect on the environment and also to reduce the need for wood from trees. I believe that this has application in Guyana where rice husks are seen as a waste product from rice mills and where it is disposed of by burning mostly. It is also left in big piles behind the rice mills and not only does it look untidy but also pollutes and can cause breathing problems for anyone coming near it. The technology of using the rice hulls in laminate floor construction already exists and introducing it to Guyana would greatly reduce the pollution from rice hulls and also decrease the demand for hardwoods from trees in the forest. This also saves the trees and allows for another way to protect the environment.
