All animals answer the call of Nature.

Clean water? Don't poo in it

My favourite innovation is the peepoo bag. I know a lot of other agents have written about this one but I hope I have something to add.



Where I live the most common sanitation device for humans is the water closet. This means people pee and poo into a toilet then flush it with mains water. This probably seems totally crazy to folk who struggle every day of their lives to get… Continue

Pee and Poo - From Problem to Blessing

There is an urgent need for sanitation in world today. Human excrementa are contaminating water with ch***ra and other diseases. There is a way to change this problem into a solution for last weeks mission. The peepoo bag is an excellent way to solve both the food crisis and the lack of safe water. The bag is easy to use, it's biodegradable and it's cheap. But even more important - used bags are extraordinary as fertilizer.



It's a simple solution… Continue

Holy Crap

I was just forwarded this article from the New York Times by an alternative energy list I'm on.



Its called the PeePoo, and its a biodegradable plastic bag with urea crystals in it to sterilize human waste and make it bioavailable. It will cost as much as a plastic bag, which some slum dwellers are currently using.…

001 Social Innovation: who am I following?

Back in March, I found a small article in the International Herald Tribune about a disposable toilet-in-a-bag aimed at the developing world, designed by Anders Wilhelmson. I found the facebook page for the peepoo product, and added it. Now, every time there is a new video, photo, or piece of news, I am alerted when I log on to facebook.


I find this product fascinating - according to the International Herald Tribune, Anders Wilhelmson used local customs/methods (slum…

Peak Phosphorous - A Looming Food Crisis

There is a looming food crisis in the world that is hardly ever mentioned. It could be labelled a new inconvienient truth. Phosphorous is one of the most important nutrients and is essential to all biological life. In most farming, phosphorous is added using fertilizers. Unlike nitrogen, which the other important nutrient, phosphorous supplies are much more limited. Phosphorous used in fertilizers is mainly… Continue

Want to innovate? Think in BoP projects

Base of the piramide, there's potential. I've search the posts but no one is giving any attention to the bottom of the pyramid market. It's all bout giving people that lives with less than 2.5 dlls the acces to the world of commodities. Maybe we can find an idea to help some of the problems that this people face, but how about if we just give them the tools like microcredit or peepoo, for them to find their own pats to a better life.

The phrase “bottom of the pyramid” was used by U.S.…

"Make it Inexpensive"

I'll quote the American poet, James Russell Lowell: "Wealth may be an excellent thing, for it means power, and it means leisure, it means liberty."
Wealth's relative, subjective. To people who live on a dollar or two a day, the ability to produce clean potable water inexpensively is wealth, and that means a greater degree of liberty to live their lives as they see fit. Engineer Michael Pritchard's Lifesaver water purifier is a…

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
