YouTube Preview Image

What do you do when you get a hole in your rain boots, or a gadget cable starts to fray? If you’re like many of us, probably curse, fire up Amazon, and resign the broken object to the trash or the back of your closet to be re-evaluated later. But what if you could easily repair everything you had so that you never had to buy new stuff again? We recently discovered an amazing new product that works wonders with repairing and improving stuff. Sugru is a handy moldable glue ideal for any number of household projects, including fixing all of your broken gadgets and junk! It’s not only a sustainable alternative to hot glue guns and toxic super-glues, but Sugru transforms from glue to rubber creating an adhesive that’s strong enough to securely bond nearly any material — everything from aluminum, steel, ceramics, glass and wood, to even most plastics and rubbers.

The promise of Sugru is to empower average folks who want to solve their everyday problems around the home themselves, and create less waste in our world. Watch some of their cute videos after the jump to learn all sorts of summertime DIY projects, home improvement hacks, and cool ways to trick out your bike that are possible with this ingenious little solution.

Is Bernie Sanders our best defense against climate change?

Could Bernie Sanders be our best hope to save the planet from catastrophic climate change by leading a clean energy revolution in the United States? The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, whose populist message has been drawing big crowds across the country, is gaining on Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton. On Sunday, the Clinton campaign announced her plan to combat climate change. The following day, in an email to supporters, Sanders laid out the problem and solution. Sanders put the climate crisis in stark terms: “The scientific community is virtually unanimous in telling us that climate change is real, is caused by human activity, and is already bringing catastrophic damage to our planet. Yet, the Republican Party is prepared to reject science in order to gain campaign contributions from the Koch brothers, Big Energy companies and others who make billions on fossil fuels. If we do not act boldly on climate change, the planet we leave to our grandchildren may be uninhabitable.”

What do we have here? Yesterday on my way to the office I pulled up next to two heavily camouflaged prototypes of Chrysler’s all-new Town & Country minivan, which is expected to arrive sometime next year as a 2017 model. While this isn’t the first time that spy photographers have caught the new minivan driving around the country, what sparked my interest here was the “EV” sticker on the back – providing a hint of the electrified powertrain under all that camouflage.
