Un vélo en carton qui peut être construit pour moins de $15 | MonPetitBiz 06/08/2012 Transport Il y a quelques temps, Duke Studios annonçait la création des premiers bureaux en carton recyclé.

En effet, il a construit un vélo entièrement composé de carton recyclé qui couterait moins de $15 à produire, plus précisément entre $9 et $12 en moyenne par unité. Le carton utilisé est particulièrement solide puisque ce vélo peut supporter un poids d’environ 130 kilos. Le coût de production est l’un des atouts majeurs de ce vélo, mais pas seulement, puisque la démarche écologique est dans l’air du temps et très appréciée des consommateurs.
This is the third part in a series by Scott Anthony, author of The Little Black Book Of Innovation. It sounds so seductive: a “culture of innovation.” The three words immediately conjure up images of innovation savants like 3M, Pixar, Apple, and Google--the sorts of places where innovation isn’t an unnatural act, but part of the very fabric of a company.

8 Reasons To Choose A Startup Over A Corporate Job You've graduated from college, diploma in hand (or in the mail), and you have a couple of job offers on the table.

You're leaning toward that corporate job and good pay with nice benefits.
