Improve the social environment in Rotterdam with the following project. 1. Find people who want to do volunteer work 2. Find places/people who need volunteers. 3. Find companies (cinemas, cafes, etc) who want to stimulate volunteer work and arrange discount for your volunteers at those companies, in this way creating a help chain. May 20 2012
"Hi, I am open for suggestions! I realize that carbon footprint is an annual calculation, but we can think of ways to convert it. I was at first thinking about suggesting to only eat local food, but then realized the idea came from wanting to reduce the carbon footprint. There must be so many more ways to reduce your carbon footprint, I am hoping that if Maarten focuses on it for a month he can come up with some good tips for all of us."March 5 2012 on Calculate your carbon footprint and try to reduce it with 20% in a...

"I have to say, I agree with Jorinde. Although Maarten deserves a holiday after a month of no shampoo, chocolate and toilet paper, this new idea will not affect a lot of unaware people. Most of the followers are already aware of the conditions abroad. Besides Maarten will spend a lot of money, might have to use polluting transport, without acutely helping any worker. Moreover the website’s public might not have the same favorite object as Maarten and the gathered information will not even be informative for them. I love the idea of this website, but would like to suggest to start with more local idea’s. The local media attention that Maarten already got this month is great and can cause the snowball affect Maarten is looking for if it continues."February 25 2012 on Trace your favorite shirt back to the factory in which it was made....
