In January of 2008 with a thousand dollars, a laptop and the conviction that design can change the world, Emily Pilloton launched Project H Design, a radical non-profit that supports, inspires and delivers life-improving humanitarian product design.

This book features more than 100 contemporary design products and systems including safer baby bottles, a high-tech waterless washing machine, low-cost prosthetics for landmine victims, Braille-based Lego-style building blocks for blind children, wheelchairs for rugged conditions, sugarcane charcoal, universal composting systems, DIY soccer balls, making the case for design as a tool to solve some of the world’s biggest social problems in beautiful, sustainable and engaging ways.
