(Focusing on Thermal Physics and Energy)
An Investigatory Project in Physics By:
Today, candles are made not only for lighting purposes but for many other uses such as home décor, novelty collections, as fixtures for big occasions (weddings, baptismal , etc.), and as scented varieties for aromatherapy. Candles are made from different types of waxes and oils. Cooking oil is a major kitchen item in Filipino households. It is also used substantially in fast-food outlets, where it is used in different stages of food preparations. Ordinarily, used cooking oil is discarded. This waste oil pollutes and clogs canals and sewerage systems. The sound of cooking oil as the prime material for making candles may sound cliché. Yet, in this investigatory project, we will prove that cooking oils can be made to candles.
The study we made was not just made for the completion of our physics requirement but also to let everyone open their minds in the possibility of a greener nature. This is our objectives: * The role of the consumer-producer relationship in maintaining a market for sustainable products. * The role of consumers’ attitudes toward eco-friendly goods.
Significance of the Study
As for consumer attitude toward green purchasing, I believe the key issue is whether consumers” get it”. Do consumers who purchase sustainable products (like cooking oil made candles) do so because it’s” hip” to be green, because the candles are chic, because they feel pressured to turnover a new leaf by climate change headlines, or because they believe in the sustainability of sustainability? While any of these motives is better than none at all, it’s not necessarily true that more is better´ when it comes to sale of eco-products. Only a lasting change in mindset toward production and consumption - not merely the sale of more products –will establish sustainability for the long haul. This is the real light at the end of the...
