Paper Utensils Printer Friendly Version
Why make plastic utensils when paper can be just as durable? It makes no sense to make something to be thrown away every time you use them, when they can be replaced by a cheaper, bio-degradable, environmentally sound product that would hold up to hours of use. Paper can have many uses, but this is the best one. They make the paper plate, but forgot to make the rest out of paper. The knife, the fork, the spoon, the spork and everything else,could be paper, and then we would have a set that would just rot and never cause a problem to us, ever.
You always see the plastic utensils, around the garbage cans where they are supposed to be inside and then, someone comes along and breaks it, making hundreds of little garbage, waste, pieces of plastic, that can never be collected and litter the ground forever. It is also not safe for animals to have plastic in their stomachs when they come to eat the garbage we leave behind. If everything was paper then it would all be digestable as well. It would solve so many problems that there isn't room to write them all here but, when you compare plastic to paper, you obviously know the right answer to the best choice. It's Paper Utensils!

Tissue Paper on Toilet Paper Rolls Printer Friendly Version
If you have tissue paper on the same cardboard rolls as toilet paper you can then tear off the proper, needed, amount of paper. Not too much and not too little. You can then buy a toilet paper holder and place your tissue paper roll in a convienant place for nose blowing or what ever purpose you use tissue paper. Maybe in the bathroom where you can blow your nose in the mirror to check for any mess left over on your face or clothes. Faster and better than having it in a box of tissue where you don't get enough and have the blow through or too much and too many sheets of it to hold onto or handle.

Entrepreneur's Business Park Printer Friendly Version
Every area has talented people. Skills all going to waste. Dying of loneliness. And lack of opportunity. In my experience, the only people who really benefit from the agencies set-up to help entrepreneurs, are the employees who mostly do very little to actually help alleviate their struggles.
So why not introduce a true enterprise zone to help bring enterprising people together. Government funded, industrial type building - you're allowed all kinds of styles in business parks! It could be a sort of theme park for adults, with places to crash out, bars that serve good food/drinks, IT stations, art studio facilities, noticeboards, keep fit equipment including fun stuff like swings, a gym for people to play ball games etc., and most importantly, a large conference suite so that council members or big business can consult the brainy bods!
Surround the place with loads of trees, flowers. Create enough parking (could be underground). Maybe charge members an annual fee, reimburseable if they make a good contribution to help run the place efficiently/cost effectively.
For ambience, try using weatherboarding on the floor - nail down and sand the panels, apply paint/varnish! Cheap, effective, hard-wearing. Don't make ceilings too high or problems keeping place warm. Could show educational films relating to art/craft/design. Hold seminars about whatever people are interested in, e.g. tackling poverty... Could run a store re-using waste paper etc. There's so much potential, the mind boggles!
Reward: Just make it happen! Invite me along to my local think tank. That would more than suffice.
