Silvana commented on Aesthetically designed mobility support devices

Hi Devendra, I think you are right! Thought you might enjoy browsing through this wheelchair project: http://layerdesign.com/projects/go/

Hi Jen! I love this idea. We can see a similar concept happening with grocery bags. After living in San Francisco, and observing how most people bring their own reusable bags to the store or try to fit as much as possible into one purchased paper bag; coming back to El Salvador where everybody uses numerous new plastic bags every time they shop makes me wonder how much plastic will be saved when Latin America eventually adopts San Francisco's grocery bag culture.

Silvana commented on Fresh Paper

Hi Emily! Thank you for sharing Ecovative's website, they have some really interesting materials. I can definitely see something like Fresh Paper scaling in different ways such as packaging and perhaps even revolutionizing the way we store food and leftovers - the future of tupperware maybe?
