When there is a need, think green.

I am taking a free online course, “Leading Strategic Innovation in Organizations”, through Coursera, conducted by instructor David A. Owens of Vanderbilt University.

The project I am working on is "Stand On your Own", in which I hope to encourage single parents to create to sell Eco-friendly product.  This presentation is what it is all about.

I like it that I am able to include what I have shared on this blog to complete my course project.  So, never let others tell you that what you are doing is not useful if you think it is meaningful.  You never know where the future will lead you to when you are willing to share what you know.

Don't kill! Think green.

What do you think it will take to save livestock on a farm in Kenya from lions?  Bows and arrows or guns?

None of the above.  Pick this up from 13 years old, Richard Turere.  All you need are:

1) five flashlight bulbs
2) a car battery
3) a solar panel

Don't believe me?  Watch this video.

And for his environmentally friendly effort, Richard was offered a scholarship to study at The Brookhouse International School.  How great is that?

It just shows that you don't have to kill your enemies in order to survive.  Just think green.

Hot! It's so hot in Malaysia!

Yes, it's hot in Malaysia!  What do you expect, we are located near the equator.  But instead of complaining, what can we do about it?


That's what Julie and Scott Brusaw in USA are doing with their invention of Solar Roadways in their efforts to combat "Global Warming".  Watch this video and you will get an idea of how they are harvesting energy from the sun .

This concept should work very well in Malaysia too, don't you agree?

When a piece of cloth will do.

Do we really need more clothes?  Maybe a piece of cloth with holes cut in the right spots will do.

I hope that the "Vestido Multi Look" will inspire more fashion designers to work in this direction.

Need more inspiration?  Here it goes.

Bags? Make your own!

Do you need to buy more bags to match what you wear?

How about getting yourself a multicolored one that would match most of what you have?  You think that is too gaudy?  Watch this and you may decide to make your own.

Now you know what to do with scarves and stuff made out of fabric in your home that you have intended to scrap.

Strong weaving material? Found in plastic bottles.

If you need strong weaving material, what you should be looking out for are plastic bottles.

I hope this innovative idea will catch on.

Re-use plastic bottles the Coca-Cola way

Plastic bottles can be an issue if left to litter the environment.  Coca-Cola in doing their part gives you a reason to take their bottles out of the bins to re-use them.
