Ernest commented on Solecan - 'Your single can trash & recycling solution!'

Like it a lot Francesca :D. Seems to solve the problems of aesthetics and ease of use at once.


Ernest commented on Economic Incentives and Reward Systems

Really like a lot of your thoughts David. I think that incentivizing those that aren't as invested in recycling as most folks on this site are is a good start. Once people develop the habit of recycling, they'll justify the behaviour to themselves even as you slowly reduce the incentive. For that reason I wonder if things like incentivized slacktivism might not be such a terrible way to start?


Ernest commented on Reuse and Recycle Rubbish Because It's Fun

Really fun idea Tom. I think you could inspire a lot of people with it using social media. Maybe something like "feed the deed"( Would have to make sure it was fun for the tricky 18 -35 yr olds too...
