One idea that might make recycling at home easier to envision creative ways of turning waste into something useful, is to create an app. that shows what a product could be if it were recycled rather than thrown away. "From This to This" is a simple
Sometimes recycling is just not so convenient. It is these times that you ask yourself questions like: “would this one bottle of coke really make a difference? How much difference would one bottle make?” The common answer is “every bottle counts” but
Hey Stephan, would be great to have you on-board and help with brainstorming or any other aspect of further developing it.
Please also applaud the idea if you liked it. This can help it get more exposure and give it a change to be developed.
The idea is to help people to develop a habit of recycling by gamifying the process of creating habits: Trigger - Behaviour (make it as easy as possible to have early success) - Reward . The basic gaming concept is that people could purchase or downl
Provide a guided, safe, social platform for children and young adults to interact in creative ways. By creating a multi-sided platform, children can participate in sponsored programs or allow children to learn code and build academic applications etc

In the Land of Creativity, a storm is brewing. The guilds of storytellers, painters, musicians and many more creativities are gathering around. They’ve sent out their ambassadors to all corners of the world, and now are waiting for a call to action.
The devastating consequences of rape--HIV, STDs and unwanted pregnancy--are preventable with inexpensive medications. Tracking these life-saving medications gives early, anonymous and geographic data about where mass sexual violence is occurring.
What if we can enable people who live in hard-to-access areas to gather and send information, by giving them the information and tools to do so before violence erupts? Building on several inspirations and ideas, Enabler Cards explore that question.
Product is bearing an insightful message or information / Product reaches perpetrator/violator / Consumer is confronted with pro peace statements each and every day / Change of behaviour as possible outcome
Skylanterns are easy to use means of communication. They are cheap, not weathe dependent to high extent, visible over great distance and might be produced with natural or very low tech materials. Signaling upcoming violence might be one way of usage
Thx Christel Tardif for your thoughts and feedback. What exactly do you mean by early adopters "selling" the idea? Selling to customers that the drink comes without straw or do you refer to something else. As this is a multi sided model it is indeed very challenging to build value on both sides through high numbers of bars and site-visitors / customers. With such models the first months or even years are critical. So far I haven't come up with alternatives. How exactly would your partnership solution work? Thank you for any further input and thoughts that you might have in the upcoming days. Stephan
Thx Darren Yeo for your comments. Exactly, the idea is that we award certain businesses with a certificate that represents participation in a plastic free movement and serves as a badge which can be also displayed digitally (like bcorporation)! Issuing the badge for a year or longer or shorter is certainly an important question. It shouldn't be easy to get unless you commit to banning straws in your bar/restaurant but of course you should be able to celebrate your success for some time.
Of course: it's important to test how important straws really are fro (perceived) quality. My feeling is that we use because we get it but this feeling needs some back up / testing.
Do you have a restaurant, café, bar or any other business of that sort?
