Trashion = Power. Literally.

This is a pretty amazing trashion story:

19-year-old William Kamkwamba built a windmill out of found and repurposed materials to provide power to his village in Malawi. This new source of electricity has been life-changing for his community, as it allows them to power things like light bulbs and a radio, when previously their homes were lighted through the use of expensive paraffin candles.

Seriously amazing and inspirational story. Check out William's blog to learn more.
