Hannah commented on Make Inclusive Design Playful!

They've since rebuilt it (elementary school was a long time ago for me, after all). The new design is also meant to be inclusive, you can see a mock-up here: http://worldonline.media.clients.ellingtoncms.com/img/croppedphotos/2016/09/14/120-85348-2D0000_copy_JS_RyanGrayHillcrest_08312015-lead_t640.jpg?a6ea3ebd4438a44b86d2e9c39ecf7613005fe067

Hannah commented on WHY WASTE WASTE KENYA PROJECT (WWW)

I love seeing traditional building techniques being upcycled for use in the modern world. Plastic insulation for homes is a great solution for the housing crisis that the world faces, and an amazing way to upcycle waste.
Will the families themselves be constructing these homes? What are the weather conditions in your part of Kenya - and will the materials withstand major changes in climatic conditions?
Are there any potential adverse effects to building with plastic insulation?

While introducing biofortified seed seems promising, I'm curious about a few things.
Will farmers be able to regrow from their own gathered seeds at the end of the season, or will they have to buy seeds from HarvestPlus every year?
What are the potential adverse effects to the local ecosystem from introducing these seeds?
