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!

  • Do you have a chocolate problem or an oxygen problem?
    Run out of chocolate, and that’s a shame. Run out of oxygen and you’re doomed. Sometimes, we overdo our reliance on chocolate. It’s better in small doses–too much and it loses its magic. And sometimes we confuse the thing we want with the thing we need… If your day or your project or your organization […]
