Biking in the rain sucks. The streets are slippery, your hands get cold, and water assaults you from every angle. VANMOOF ‘s new rain poncho makes rainy day cycling suck less. The Boncho is a lightweight, waterproof and breathable shell that extends over your handlebars to keep your hands, torso, and legs dry. (It won’t save you from tire splash – but that’s what fenders are for.) A flexible built-in frame gives the shell structure, and the whole thing folds into a tiny pouch you can keep in your bag at all times. Did we mention it’s affordable? If you act now, you can pick one up on Kickstarter for $50 and breeze through rainy days on your bike. + Boncho Bike Poncho + VANMOOF

Comments Off on Splinster and Vanmoof just unveiled the bike share of the future at SXSW

Spinlister has just unveiled what they hope will be the future of bike share programs at SXSW in Austin . Rather than relying on clunky bikes that are stored at central locations and owned by a private company (a la CitiBike ), Spinlister’s bikes—which are designed and produced by VanMoof —are independently owned by riders (i.e., you), and rental time can be located, booked, and the bike unlocked via smartphone app, wherever they may be parked.

Poll Shows Voters Do Want Climate Change Action Despite Silence on the Issue

Comments Off on Poll Shows Voters Do Want Climate Change Action Despite Silence on the Issue

A recent survey conducted by YouGov and the Huffington Post has revealed that voters in this week’s midterms consider climate change an issue, even though it is being downplayed in the pre-election rhetoric. Interestingly, given the Republican Party’s evasiveness  when it comes to discussing the issue, 44 percent of respondents believe that human activity is driving climate change, 33 percent believe the climate is changing but not as a result of human activity, while only 12 percent believe that the climate is not changing at all. A greater number of those polled said they would be voting for a Republican candidate rather than a Democrat candidate in the midterms.

New Food Label Expires Along With Food, Could Save Tons of Food Waste

Comments Off on New Food Label Expires Along With Food, Could Save Tons of Food Waste

If you follow the expiry dates on your food, you could be throwing out almost 40 percent of what you buy each month – the average person throws out a shocking total of 20 pounds of expired food each month. However according to Grist , food date labels that say things like ‘best-before,’ or ‘enjoy by’ are just guidelines from the growers or manufacturers that say when their food will remain at its best – it’s often fine for eating days or weeks past the date marked on the label. Bump Mark is a new food label that could change all that.

Can the $40 Billion Great Garuda Project Stop Jakarta From Sinking Into the Sea?

Comments Off on Can the $40 Billion Great Garuda Project Stop Jakarta From Sinking Into the Sea?

Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta, is sinking into the sea . And forget the fuss about Venice dropping at a rate of 0.08 inches per year, Jakarta – home to 10 million people and counting – is sinking at between 2.9 and 6.7 inches  per year , as some areas submerge faster than others. While rising sea levels are a contributing factor to this, by far the greater cause is unchecked groundwater extraction from below the city to provide fresh water to the ever-growing population. To try to stave off the impending inundation of sea water, the city has engaged Dutch firm Witteveen+Bo s to manage a $40 billion land reclamation and sea wall project that will construct 17 new islands and take an estimated 30 years to complete. But will it be enough? Read the rest of Can the $40 Billion Great Garuda Project Stop Jakarta From Sinking Into the Sea?
