I've entered the ironing board despite the fact that it stands in my house as an object of maternal servitude. However, I am reminded that things would be so much more tedious without it -- living as we do in the first world where pressed shirts matter. I really appreciate crisp sheets, smooth table cloths and well-turned out school uniforms too. Next up would be flushable toilets and child car seats -- designed for those of us living in an industrialised, mobile society. I did want to register soap but some-one had beaten me to it. That, and penicillin would have had more meaningful global impact. Check out the listings.
The concept is supported by Acumen Fund, a a non-profit global venture fund that uses entrepreneurial approaches to solve the problems of global poverty.
