Going Green, my proposals to manafacture recyled cork into yoga mats. This proposal connects us to our community by healing our environment.
3. Opportunity: Which pillar of well-being, and which aspect of that particular pillar, are being addressed by the idea? In what way does it influence a pillar? What type of individual and community would benefit from the idea?
Community is the piller of well being that I have chosen. By manafacturing recycled cork and processing the cork into cork yoga mats we better our community's/enviroments health. Cork is renewable, recyclable and biodegradable. Cork is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional yoga mats. Local and global communitys would benefit because of this. Cork farmers would also benefit by selling their renewable product.
4. Innovation: Why is your idea unique, novel, and/or impactful? What will the future look like if we’re successful in bringing your idea to life? How does the proposed solution differ from existing solutions addressing human well-being?
My idea is Impactful and unique because cork is a renewable recyclable biodegradable resource. Harvesting cork doesn't harm the tree. The future would be that of more trees planted, less garbage and less emissions from processing/manafacturing cork into a product. This differs from traditional solutions of well being because it's an environmental approach as well as it's a marketing approach.

5. Action Plan: Please justify and briefly describe the major steps needed to make this idea a reality. Does the technology and understanding exist now? Is it likely to exist in the next 3-5 years?
Procure a deal with cork producers/farmers in order to obtain the necessary materials. Manafacture pulverized recycled processed cork into yoga mats. Promote the new exclusive environmentally safe cork yoga mat. The understanding of corks environmental impact exists and is generally know. The technology exists and could be implemented very easily. Sustainable development is going to exist for decades to come. Side note: cork is light weight, durable and flexible, it's perfect for a yoga mat.
