One problem with recycling at home is that most of the time you're NOT at home.  You may have a recycling bin at home that you use regularly, but when you're not at home, you're at the mercy of your environment for recycling options.

Kendrick commented on ReGO: Recycling at Home for People On the Go

Meena, that's great advice; thanks! I've updated the profile with some examples. Let me know what you think ;). Regarding a prototype, I'm actually working on that. My idea was that this would be super simple to prototype... but my water bottle didn't fit the one thing I thought would be most useful to put into it - a can or bottle. So I'll try to find a water bottle (Nalgene?) big enough for a coke bottle, stick a white sticker on it to keep track of my progress, start carrying it around, and report back. Deal?

Ripe for hipster appropriation!

Kendrick commented on Sample Idea: No More Dark Buses Campaign

I worry that this idea will meet push-back from the municipal authorities that you would make liable. Perhaps instead of liability, you could make the program center on "outing" or "shaming" the government and bus-drivers for inaction. This would not require the authorities to comply or cooperate with your idea, and would use the universal power of reputation to nudge authorities and drivers instead.
