Beirut Service Jam

Marhaba! Hola! Hello! Ciao! We are the ChuShu Team!!
Marhaba means hello in arabic.

Marhaba is about enabling people from different backgrounds to start an impulsive conversation in a public space, and possibly grow into friendships.

"Service" is a typical public transport in Beirut, which enables one to 4 passengers to share a ride towards a given destination.
Usually, the "service" driver spends at least 10 hours per day in his car, people coming in and out, some of them already start conversations, while others might never connect, or might never find the reason to.

Being a fun ice breaker, Marhaba grows a conversation between two people that might never connect otherwise,

Marhaba is a recording device that won't stop repeating "marhaba", until it's picked up. The noise will act as a fun ice breaker to start a conversation between the passenger and the cab driver or between different passengers.

You also have the choice to record your own "Marhaba" followed by a message on the device, and leaving it to travel with the "service" to where he's going.

After the brainstorm session, we narrowed down the ‘Grow^’ theme to ‘Creative Solutions for a better lifestyle’. We then took that one step further and focused on parents/children dynamics. Hence our aim is to grow positive relationships and promote creative interaction within families. We will provide a service on a national level that capitalizes on existing curricula by mapping out a fun educational ‘treasure hunt’ for families.

Breathe Green

Breathe Green provides a very special service for the Lebanese households. It promotes a better green lifestyle around the city for us and the upcoming generations. The main service we provide is the availability of a "green detective" that is responsible to visit your household ( upon request ) and will do 3 main things :
1- checks your green status using a questionnaire
2- hands over 4 well designed garbage bins suitable for the space ( paper, plastic, glass, organic wastes)
3 - educates the household about what material in specific goes in which bin
In addition to this special service after analysing the questionnaire the detective will always provide the household with little tips about how to go green in other ways such as unplugging appliances that are not in use, or closing faucets properly... Also he will give them an updating about their current status regarding their wastes.
The main motivation is the pick up service for your garbage that we provide according to every community's waste patterns in order to maintain your current lifestyle and make it even better. The second motivation is implementing a scoring system where the household will collect points upon signing up and committing to the procedures given (e.g. every time the garbage detective passes by to collect the garbage you score a certain amount of points according to what type of garbage bin was full). These points can be redeemed at our sponsored retail stores for valuable prizes.
