I was thinking about the wind-up radio. It’s both environmentally and socially friendly! It was designed to help isolated villages in Africa, by educating the people and improving communications/ global awareness. Radio was popular already there, but the people had to spend alot on batteries to power their radios.

It sells really well because it’s associated with benefitting Africa (so it’s thought to be a nice, friendly, ethical product..) plus it’s environmentally friendly.

I know it’s not what we discussed in our last meeting, but thought it was a good lead so wanted to post incase it inspires anything..

gawd damn it.. how do you insert pictures into blog posts??
