Sustainable design

Or...Design for the Other 90%.

Awhile back i saw Paul Polak speak about his book "Out of Poverty" at OCAD and became very interested in the idea of designing stuff that actually allows people to help themselves instead of the short term, expensive and non sustainable design.
Some of the designs his team made cost only a few dollars and help people to get their farms going and take care of their families without relying on the government or anyone else for help.
have a look at some of these great ideas by checking out the links below:
