if all the salt in the ocean will spread evenly over the earth and die a surface we would make a lair more than 500 feet thick that's the height of a 40 story building so what does this salt and how is it created a crystalline compound made of sodium chlorine and some impurities salt found dissolved in oceans and some lakes comes from the vetting of rocks on land. raindrops as they fall on land dissolve carbon dioxide from the environment and become acid dick the carbon dioxide plus water called carbonic acid erodes rocks and creates mineral ions or electrically charged it or make particles. these particles are got it to seize and lakes by rivers and streams where they bond in a chemical reaction to form salt. this process has been happening since the beginning of time making salt over 202300 1000000 years old. common salt

5:44 pm
are starting to understand that vantages of sanitary napkins. made it to you. but i you know i live here in the slum oh you know i was using cloths and but then i heard about the sanitary napkins made by the girls. there. very good and are better than the ones available on the market. i really like using them well your goodness they were just. the girls also invite women from the slums to come to this school to learn more about women's body in an informal city. we are opening with these young. go on.
5:45 pm
and they will be happy to play these games they also the schools and the media suspects of friends will help. there are still many young women with insufficient sex education and access to hygiene products because one of sanitation movement projects like this in other parts of the country and the need is for their ticket society as a whole about what menstruation here's one of the most natural things in the world are. not difficult conversations like speaking to one and her family about safe menstrual hygiene is what brings about real change communication is a key factor in creating conducive environments not only a tool but also at the workplace even today women continue to face gender discrimination a battle space designer insta tackle this problem enhancing communication she has designed for games and watching games so that workplaces in india can speak about
5:46 pm
and fight gender discrimination through game and team building. here the day starts with playing games but this is serious work in this public research center in paris designers and developers work together on education. games graphic designer may code design 2 games for the indian market. the aim is to raise awareness about workplace discrimination by making employees play. in the video game another day the player acts as an h.r. manager and meets priyanka who's reporting a case of harassment. present her work to a colleague. we had our concept when she says that people whistle at her there that they touch her. her
5:47 pm
colleagues say she shouldn't wear short skirts she should wear something more traditional so. the game simulates a face to face interaction with the employee answers questions that help the player address the problems and learn new social practices. although western brands are in india now obviously the girls dress in a more western way it's more practical there's a kind of gap now it's a problem we thought was important to address. doesn't exist yet. her other game is a board game called hired. each player has to find out who refuses to recruit women old people or people from religious minorities the most common victims of discrimination. was. the role play starts and everyone is trying to one mask each other's behavior. see
5:48 pm

5:49 pm
you have to adjust to indian cultural sensitivities you can't just go to your boss and say look what you're saying doesn't suit me off slam the door and leave the indian mindset doesn't work like that there's a lot of consultation compromise it's a cultural thing. you will be included the games have been played in about $25.00 companies in india thanks to a local ngo that reaches out to them and introduces the project. in france to discrimination that work is far from being solved that's right he can tell. you farm woman who is confident will be told she's the boss but if it's a man who has the same kind of behavior we're going to say this is a leader. and women are stigmatized even if they have the same qualities as men. to me is working on adapting these games for europe since european organizations
5:50 pm
have also shown interest. moving on to another fascinating solution and estonian designer is using scraps of cloth left behind by large textile manufacturers to create a brand of small fashion usually most mass production manufacturers are left with an average of 18 percent of style waste that is usually taken to landfills booked up cycling system this design has managed to see about 75 percent water by using just these left was. mountain. textile waste these are pictures of a dump site in bangladesh. both in india and bangladesh tons and tons of textiles from industrial leftovers are thrown away every year. but some of it forms the basis for a new fashion line. the estonian design a red house uses industrial leftover materials to create items like t.
5:51 pm
shirts sweaters and dresses she wants to be a catalyst of positive change. if you just drive around in that's the area where to see you see just takes the leftovers everywhere. mixed with plastic kids playing they are burning it it's toxic waste it's awful air pollution it's like or and the 2nd thing. is are going to the ground water the people who are living there they are drinking it getting sick there are so many issues related to the decks that waste breakouts cooperates with 3 textile manufacturers in bangladesh and one in india one of them is back simcoe one of the biggest in bangladesh that makes clothing for brands such as h. and m. calvin klein tommy hilfiger and sarah more than 240000000000 items are produced in its factory every year. on average 20 percent of what's produced becomes waste.
5:52 pm
3 years ago right alex developed a system called up made it consists of 2 main steps a certification of the company to ensure transparency and a detailed leftovers report but center every month from the factory. this makes planning easier for. when they start production then we're all going to get the information that we know how big will be there the wastage what kind of material so we always make the environmental calculations as well there's off work. well that's how many blouses or trousers or different products we're going to make out of the left or worse etc so that that makes it very easy for the big companies as well if something a company would like to adopt. breakouts is based in the estonian capital. a shop is located in tel escapee
5:53 pm
a former industrial complex that's been turned into a creative hub of a stone an artist's. this is where she does the sampling i'm designing. the designs are sent back to bangladesh and india to be manufactured. by using leftover materials she can save on average 75 percent water and 88 percent energy compared to conventional production. but the scheme does have some limitations the biggest limit is that we will never know how much we have one certain type of material yes that's definitely a limit it means that for example. in one design with the arrow for example we never know how many we can do with let's say blue and
5:54 pm
gray but there will be always gray but the blue and gray we always look at different and that's the thing about that's that's the part of our collection despite the challenges that has a lot of potential not only for break outs now wants to convince other companies to take the same step. companies don't have any idea how. after their production so that we are helping them to make their way stream transparent and all the production that they can actually in the moment when they start deciding their products they already do. start designing. products as well because they will know how much leftovers we will be from their main productions another element of the project is tackling post consumer waste with a new project denim she collects jeans from recycling centers in estonia a company turns them into yawn which is used to make clothes like the. customers
5:55 pm
appreciate the combination of up cycling and recycling. i like to design but also yeah obviously the idea that you can use a fabric that's left somewhere and make it into something really cool i think it's important the boy is torn in this line and i think what she's doing is something very special so i think the design and methods are very good and for me it's very important there's a strong design and there are some great. companies could produce around 10 to 15 percent more by using leftovers and save a lot of money for 8 hours it's a win win situation she's already working on her next collection. today with the amount of ecological damage the planet has suffered nearly all of us are forced respond to some change of the other. stories have given you the inspiration to take the 1st step towards creating the change we want to see for the
5:56 pm
