Doing Good...the Right Way [Jun. 4th, 2009|07:37 am]

At the risk of you thinking that I just have an obsession with excrement...I share this link:

Because not only is it brilliant. And simple. But it's an example of someone (or ones) looking at a problem and coming up with a solution that not only addresses the end problem (how do we create a more sanitary environment so these kids stop dying), provides a side benefit (here's free fertilizer to help with crop growing/food supply) and chips away at an obstacle (the Tony Soprano's of the developing world who wind up diverting so much of the aid/supplies. Let's face it, what the hell are they going to do with a warehouse of poop bags? It's a product designed for small scale. It doesn't even work on a large scale.

Brilliant.

Plus their company is named PeePoople. And you can't beat THAT.

This is so cool I immediately posted the link to Facebook- and forgot to credit you. Sorry about that...

"PeePoople!" That's just great!

They'd be great for camping, too, in some situations. I want some.
