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!

That it’s up to them, whoever ‘them’ is. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. quoted Theodore Parker: “The arc of […]
  • Everyone is doing their best
    What if that’s not actually true? Perhaps it’s more useful to consider that in every moment, on every project, no one is actually doing their best. Because there’s always a need to hold a little bit in reserve. Because there are always competing priorities. Because everyone has a noise in their head. Because there’s fear, […]
