Hacking Your Home to Become a Better Recycler
Dedicated recyclers create in-home hacks to improve their recycling efforts. What can we learn from them?
I always think it's interesting to explore positive deviants for clues on innovative approaches to our OpenIDEO challenge topics. When I started looking at what folks come up with to improve their sorting and recycling efforts, I was interested with what I found on
this collection of at-home hacks – so I've included some of the images from there above.
From the good-looking to the purely practical – if it assists recycling, it's gotta be a good thing!
I'd love it if a handy bloke popped round to my place and installed something like this :^)
As we head towards the upcoming Ideas phase, what other hacks can we collect on new Research phase posts? I dare you start looking for more!
How might we draw upon the innovation of at-home recycling hackers to propose solutions for mainstream folks at home? How might we create customisable sorting solutions that work in a range of living contexts? How might we encourage more folks to think about hacking their homes to improve their recycling habits?
