How to Fund Research that promotes upcycling, green design and disaster relief - kind of awesome

Nancy Vitale

Hey everyone,

So the researchers and students at the New York Institute of Technology have just launched a Kickstarter to fund the SodaBIB, a system that takes plastic bottles and turns them into roofs -- using the caps, the bottles, and even the pallets that water is delivered on!

These guys are working so hard -- throw them a little support if you can, or at least spread the word.

    this is awesome, nancy. going forward, when you post stuff that's actionable, make sure to post it as a "Do" (when you click post, it gives you the option to frame the link as something to learn or something to do, and when it's framed as a do, it carries a "do" button and people can put it on there to do list, pull in friends, etc, etc. Anyhow, hell yea. Thanks for sharing this.

      Thanks, Ben.

      I can't figure out a way to turn this into a DO. Should I just delete and repost?

      Also, we're trying to get these to a more prominent place. This Kickstarter is moving a little slowly. How can I get this featured as a Good HQ pick?

      Thanks, again,
