7 innovations to kickstart positive change today
In recent months, Springwise has spotted a number of innovations that -- said simply -- make the world a better place. Many of them help improve the environment such as 3D printed seawalls to boost biodiversity. But some combat social ills such as digital billboards to help homeless people find shelter. Or are health-related like fidget spinners that save lives in some of the poorest corners of the earth. At Springwise, we find all of the innovations we share worthwhile, but admittedly, some are more inspiring than others. Our latest Top 7 celebrates some recent world improving innovations. Enjoy!
