Idea: In everyday living, we come across a lot of electronic items of ours that become faulty like a mobile phone charger or a pair of headphones, etc. Majority of us dispose them by chucking them in the bin and unconsciously disregard that they can

Karan commented on Social Inclusion via basic Economic Participation

Commendable! I think this can certainly help in solving the issue and its results can be manifold. With an initiative already in existence, even students like us at business schools can step up to do something of social good. Have a read of this article just in case, as it explains the know-how of biddy bags as a hybrid business model.

Nick,
It is interesting to see Google extending its scope to learning and mentoring. It could potentially act as the platform which a few emerging ideas in this challenge can use.
Good groundwork.

Karan commented on Why I don't recycle on a regular basis...

Hi Brad,
a very valid point that widely popular companies like Coca-Cola can do much more when it comes to promoting recycling of their own packaging.
However, I doubt if they would ever come up with an actual image on their product of what damage does it do if not recycled properly. Visual imagery does not have great affect on usage/consumption patterns (for example: Cigarettes).
It can definitely magnify the recycling logo on its bottles so as to promote it.
Another interesting alternative is the video that Quincy has linked.

Cheers Mate!
