Piggy bank

2009-12-15 21:29 - 0 Comments

This piggy bank is like your dog or your cat, it is alive and it needs you to take care of it. When it is moved or randomly, when it senses that somebody is around, it gets sad and calls your attention because it needs to be fed. For doing that, its owner has to feed it with a small random amount of money that will be taken from the credit card. The idea is that the owner has to take care of it, but at the same time, it will save money for you and put it in a separate savings account. This way, at the end of the month you'll always have some money you saved because of taking care of it.

Velcro Grocery Bag

The main problem of the green grocery bag is that people forget it at home. We wanted to change the mindset of shoppers when it comes to bags: today it costs them in Toronto 5 cents for every plastic bag. It is obvious that a cost is not a deterrent of forgetfulness. We want them to think of the green bag in terms of savings. To that effect we are proposing a grocery bag that you can stick velcro grocery list items on. This saves the shopper time from having to write a list or call their spouse to tell them what they need to buy. It also saves their sanity because.

Throwing away dead batteries is really polluting the environment. In my country there are places to dispose of them but these are often camouflaged by advertising, making them difficult to find. Why not create advertising that emphasizes the message and encourages the use of these containers? Submitted by Martin Hernandez Toyos.

PROBLEM: The majority of Junior High students and High School students too, hate that sometimes you forget your combination or maybe your lock doesn’t work very well and gets stuck all times. Well is time for that to stop. We deserve to have fun when we want to open our locks.

Can You Plinko It?

My idea is based on the game of Plinko, from the tv show, The Price is Right. It's meant to be a fun way to recycle cans because aluminum is one of the most environmentally harmful minerals to mine. Basically it's a plinko board that is on top of a recycling bin for cans and bottles (only if your region accepts cans and bottles mixed together), so that they can be recycled normally if they'd rather not play.
