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.

    I’ve blogged many times about the chasm. That’s Geoffrey Moore’s term for the gap between the small part of the market populated with people who like to go first, and the larger group of people who want to get involved with something that’s proven, popular and effective. The early adopters ask, “is it new?” The […]
