Sustainability Solutions to Share with Linchpins # 31

I’m sharing some “million dollar” creative sustainability ideas and you can have them for free.  Be a Linchpin and develop something: ship, ship, ship!

ACTIVISM:

If we’re going to have a healthy sustainable future, we have to keep up with technology.  As we’ve already featured, the government wastes exorbitant amounts of virtually every resource known to man.

Here’s an example: the laws concerning hand washing in food-service facilities was (finally) updated in 1998…to accommodate for the use of hand dryers rather than the wasteful use of paper towels.

(I seem to remember similar delays in the elimination of those nasty rotating cloth towel rolls that recirculated the grime once about thirty people dried their hands.)

Where’s the Linchpin opportunity?

The world needs movers and shakers to change the government.

I don’t think that we all need to be engaged in Non-Governmental Organizations and capitalistic enterprises…but most do.  A few (very few) should be willing to SERVE in the function of government.

Simple.  Beautiful.  Elegant.  Activism.  Sustainable!

  • Uphill both ways
    A naive dream is that it’s possible to go on a long bike ride–and enjoy the journey going downhill in each direction. Newton had it right… you’re going to need to go uphill in order to go downhill. Too often, though, we set up our projects and our freelance life in a way that makes […]
  • Social media is a symptom, not a tactic
    When your ideas are spreading, when your work is remarkable, when your organization has built a social ratchet that works, one of the side effects will be a significant social media presence. People will talk about you in ways that they like to talk… online. On the other hand, if you spend all your time […]
