Change for Good

Year-end round-ups for 2012 can be hard to sift through, with so many blogs releasing their favorites in an endless number of categories. One that is worthwhile, and worth noting, is this round-up of the year’s best designs for social good. These innovations are inspiring and heart-warming, from a disaster preparedness kit inspired by the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, and a solar oven that makes salt water drinkable, to a beachside solar-powered building designed to gather the most energy possible from the sun. With social innovations this impactful last year, we look forward to what 2013 will bring.
