Daily at Springwise we receive hundreds of ideas submitted by our spotting system for all of us to review, which we just publish three every single day. Due to the absolute amount of technology innovations being delivered to our attention on a regular basis, it’s maybe no surprise that Pumpipumpe stood out… Tips don’t come much simpler or reduced technology than this.
Pumpipumpe is a Switzerland-based project that encourages residents to put stickers on their mailbox to denote the products they’re willing to provide for their next-door neighbors. Each sticker comes in the form of a small blue square that has illustrations including a bike pump, yard mower, kitchen scale, children’s toys, and even net accessibility and fancy dress outfits.
The concept is that home owners put the stickers corresponding towards the items they own to their mailbox, permitting passersby realize they are able to knock-on the door and ask for to borrow one thing. There'll inevitably be protection issues with such an initiative, in trustworthy areas the idea has actually obvious merit.
