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!

  • Blockbusters vs. building blocks
    It’s the blockbusters that get all the hype. The home runs, the viral videos, the hits. It’s the sudden shifts, the ideas that change everything, the fell swoops. Fell swoops seem like they’re worth chasing, but a hit isn’t a strategy, it’s an event. Nice work if you can get it, but hard to plan […]
  • It’s all horizontal (and books went first)
    With enough top-down energy, it feels like the creator of an idea can broadcast it, anytime and anywhere. That enough hype/promo/media/leverage ought to allow a major publisher or network or candidate to bend the culture simply by yelling. If you follow this road, you’re going to be sorely disappointed. For 500 years, this hasn’t been […]
