Push for Good: This Week's Guide to Crowdfunding Creative Progress

by Alessandra Rizzotti

May 19, 2013

According to Soles4Souls.org, we throw over 700 thousand tons of apparel and footwear into our landfills annually and 300 million pairs of shoes are thrown away each year. If this is happening, why not make the shoes biodegradable? Tying up our conversation about walking and climate change, these shoes give back to the earth and provide opportunities globally, while making any active sport seem like a barefoot, yet safe experience. See how designer and GOOD member Steve Boynton came up with these 90-day easy-to-make shoes that are actually comfortable to wear.

Tell us what projects you're getting behind in the comments below. And, since it's Transportation month, let us know about any innovative projects that effectively redefine city streets or get people from point A to point B. Push progress forward, and do it for our collective good.
