Sustainability Solutions to Share with Linchpins # 56

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!

Shoes for Sustainability:

Shoes are definitely a challenge, because we wear out a few parts and toss them.  (Especially in the west.)  There are synthetics and natural fibers mixed together to form these wicked compounds that typically can’t be reconstructed.

Where’s the Linchpin opportunity?

What is someone used a synthetic compound like Crocs to make a shoe that could be re-made onsite.  Sell the shoe making stations and all you need to do for a new pair of shoes is drop your old ones in the top and retrieve the new ones in the bottom.

Simple.  Beautiful.  Elegant.  Shoes.  Sustainable!

There are volumes of detailed and verified statistics about carbon […]

    Sriracha hot sauce does it all wrong, of course. The label contains more than five identifiable typefaces. The distribution method was sort of odd. The pricing is way too low. Trademark protection is non-existent. Line extensions were avoided. The market was crowded. And on and on. It’s possible to do everything wrong and do very […]
  • Avoiding the GIGO trap
    “Garbage in, garbage out.” It has a nice ring to it. And engineers have long embraced it as a mantra. If you don’t put the right stuff in, don’t expect to get good results. And so, when we banned leaded gasoline, the car industry complained that they’d never be able to make cars run well […]
