As pedestrians put plastic wastage in to the garbage collector, the leaves on the tree board are lighted using green LED lights. The more the plastic and garbage collected more the leaves turn green. So when it is full all the tree becomes green and gives a message "Recycle - Reuse - Reduce" the plastic. Inskickat av Manoj
This idea is to promote physical activity while having fun at the same time. The idea is to have a giant etch-a-sketch floor with magnetic slip ons on people feet and they can just draw away with their feet. I would put this somewhere with some traffic like the mall. This would of course be free of charge and I think kids would have so much fun with it, and probably adults too.

Many people take their dogs for a walk but don’t catch the dog poo. It requires an intervention that makes catching dog poo something funny. The “Poo Cleaner Bank” allows the dog’s owner to make different investments when he deposits the poo. Every time the owner deposits a bag with poo (it has to be analyzed to verify if it really is dog poo), he will receive a token, which will be exchanged for a cookie for the dog. Besides, many other investments are possible if the owner keep the tokens to change later.
Here you can see some pictures from a charity action I organized with the members of the school charity organization in the ational High School for acient languags andcultures in Bulgaria. This is an organization which I created and which work with children in trouble, orphas and od people and also we have a lot of loal area projects for making people understand theneed of oluntary acts and social change, a small step for a world with much more smiles and positive acts. This action included 20 students fromthe High school which were divided tothree groupswith one clown in each.
People use their car horns for all sorts of messages: Celebrating after a sports match, telling a friend "I'm here" when sitting outside his house, saying "Thank you" to another driver who has let you drive first over a one-lane bridge or saying "Good bye" to family as they wave to you. Yet in every case, we use the same, purposefully-dissonant sound to express each message. This results in both noise pollution and ambiguity. I propose that we add a second horn to each new car and truck sold: A horn that is euphonious, not dissonant, one that plays a major third or major fifth.
In society today, there is a great deal of concern over the spread of germs and viruses. This “fear” is increased amongst people globally, by the widespread media attention & coverage of viruses such as H1N1.
On a daily basis, many people do not wash their hands after using the bathroom, or before consuming food. In airports, we have noticed that fewer people wash their hands after using the bathroom, than people who are using public bathrooms elsewhere. We believe that this occurs, because people are often in a rush when travelling.
Why spend your money on new stuff? Why throw away things you don't need? How about you could trade your old stuff for a perfectly good object that someone's not using anymore?
Meet new people , save money and energy needed to produce new things , keep track of your old belongings ( how they travel around the world ) and have fun while doing it!

My proposal for the problem of abandoned and broken glass in public places of meeting is inspired to Bruno Munari's projected painting and at the same time to a popular game of our childhood: the kaleidoscope. So, throwing the glass bottles in a special container made of a "glass crusher" and of a suitable projector, we can create several compositions subsequently. A downright "open work" in continuous transformation thanks especially to the people - often young people - that won't be anymore "only" responsible citizens not polluting, but also active part and creators of pictorial works.
To encourage people to recycle, recycling machines need to serve more than their actual function. The Better day recycling machine rewards the user by telling him different kinds of information regarding the amount of recycling done. In Canada, you get back a deposit while returning empty bottles (plastic or glass). While having the cash back through a receipt, the Better day recycling machine speaks out a sentence and prints it out as the usual receipt gets out. From 1 to 5 bottles the user gets a message to brighten his day (You are a wonderful person).
Kids don't always wash their hands properly. A Musical Hand Wash featuring music, animal images and fun instructions is a great way to teach and to remind kids how to wash their hands properly. A musical welcome mat would start the step-by-step instructions for washing hands. A sink with an elephant for the faucet would be enticing and water would be released when a sensor detects hands under the trunk. Another sensor on the soap dispenser beside the sink would detect when soap has been released and music would play for 20 seconds.
Idag är det för enkelt att skänka pengar, så enkelt att det blir tråkigt. Så vi gör det svårare och med chans att fördubbla sitt bidrag.
Vi ställer upp en vägg på en offentlig plats, där får du kasta dina mynt. Prickar du ett hål är du en riktig lirare, dina pengar fördubblas. Missar du gör det inte så mycket för dina pengar blir ändå en fin donation. Det fina med det hela är att du får välja vilken organisation du vill donera till (om du är stadig på handen). Dessutom skulle man kunna lägga till extra detaljer som att sätta en saftblandare på toppen eller någon slags fanfar, om
GOLD MINE is a proposal to propagate the use of dry toilets and replace the current Water Closets (WC) in an intriguing kind of way. For The Fun Theory we call the wooden toilet houses GOLD MINE and place them on several public and semi-public places around town. The idea is to engage not only volunteers in building and maintain them but also to connect different parts of the community through the GOLD MINES. What people produce in the GOLD MINES is later utilized to enrich the soil of the community while leaving glittering traces outside of the dry toilets.

People do not like to do exercise and are lazy, but now the green car exists! It works by having pedals inside the green car and you just start pedaling and it produces no pollution and produces electricity. And it is fun at the same time.

How can we get children to wash their hands after using the toilet? We involve them into a quiz: When they push the soap dispenser they hear the question "Who is it?" Then, when they turn on the water for washing their hands they will here the typically sound of an animal. (The animal sound changes each time, so that they do not automatically know the answer) After washing the hands for 30 seconds they will get the answer (the name of the animal). If they wash their hands too short they do not get the answer.
Choose Paper Bags over plastics- period. Let's get everyone on board, that is, retailers, grocery stores, and companies large and small who advertise coupons-- have them utilize paper bags for advertising/printing coupons. It will be more readily seen by consumers (rather than stuffed into mailboxes and thrown away) -- a far better way to get us back to using paper bags just the way we used to before plastics bags were invented.

Have you ever noticed how loud kids get in cafeterias? The “Chatter Ladder” is our fun and entertaining solution to this problem! A sound meter in the “Chatter Ladder” detects and registers the noise level every second; the quieter students are, the more points they score and the more lights are illuminated on the ladder. Messages scroll across the top of the screen either congratulating or encouraging quiet conversation! An average score is recorded for each lunch period. Each lunch group tries to attain the highest score and see the most lights light up on the “Chatter Ladder”.
The problem that a lot of people do not do is recycling. Right now we really need to help the environment. So we have come up with a really fun way to get a lot more people to recycle a lot more. We are doing this because we are very concerned about the environment. Our solution (or theory) is to get people to recycle plastic bottles, aluminum cans, and bottle caps. We want to make it as fun as possible so that way we can get a lot more people enthusiastic about recycling and how it can be really fun. Here is what we plan to do.
