He has proved that product design can not only make businesses successful but also change the world, by solving pressing social problems. His projects like “One laptop per child” and “See better to learn better” have made me realize my social responsibility as a product designer. Inspired by the way he uses product design to create social impact, I started looking for ways to solve real world problems and not just first world problems, through design. For one of my recent projects, through research, I learnt that expiry dates on milk cartons are mere approximations. Misguided by these inaccurate expiry dates, consumers dispose thousands of gallons of fresh milk every year.
The increasing of China’s food safety Recently, more and more people are claiming that they started to lose the faith in the food quality in China. However, I still held the different opinion from them: despite the alarming media regarding food safety that could cause people to disbelieve government, the quality of Chinese food supplies is actually increasing since the proportion of food that follow the food regulation is increasing. The reasons for me to belief that China’s food quality is actually improving in these years because that the proportion of food that follow the food regulation are increasing. The governments are also taking the current situation of the food safety seriously and more and more citizens start to show concern about food safety. What is more, there still have some special effect of improvement to the food safety in China which is offering the changing in the point of view of other country to China.
Another posted, "700,000 people, quiet, clean air, no pollution, democracy — what are you waiting for?” What is who waiting for?

Governor Snyder is "lobbying for 50,000 special federal immigration visas to entice even more investors."

China launched to eliminate iodine deficiency, with technical and financial assistance provided through the donor funded Iodine Deficiency Disorders Control Project. The cost and cost effectiveness of salt with iodine costs approximately 2 to 7 cents per kilogram or less than 5% of the retail price of salt in most countries. The impact by 1999, iodize salt was reaching 94% of the country, up from 80% in 1995 and salt quality had improved. The history of how China introduces iodized salt to prevent the multiple disabling disorders associated with iodine deficiencies represents one such program.
One, the success cases. These are the ones in which the revolution works. POI: Despite this rhetoric, the last two decades have seen almost a billion people lifted out of poverty in Asia, because private companies have an incentive to unlock an unskilled and uneducated work force, that they otherwise wouldn't.

It increased from about 1,000,000,000 to about 1,400,000,000 since the policy was created. Document A shows us how from the time the Policy started it has not positively affected their population crisis it has only worsened it. In Document B we see a different way of the situation. Document B they argue that China’s One-Child Policy has been working by saying that in 1970 the fertility rate was 5.8 but by 1979 it lowered down to 2.7. Nevertheless this is true after 1980 China’s population started to increase again.
Now, Walmart and Metro are also involved with the carbon disclosure project. Similar to Loblaw’s, Walmart uses a board of committee members who meet annually to evaluate climate change risks that can impact the company. The process on how Walmart integrates these ideas into business is more complex and detailed with it’s three core elements; opportunity, community and sustainability. Walmart also considers climate change on the corporate level, risk assessment and business energy level. In considering how much more complete Walmart’s response is in comparison to Loblaw’s, it is fitting that Walmart received a higher carbon disclosure ranking of 92% (Gomez, 2015).

The status of Chinese women in the workplace The communist party has attempted to liberate the workforce, they promoting women work and equality between men and women. In the last decade, the government proposed the goal of building a “Harmonious Society”, following with a series of social security system projects and various welfare programs.

Women not only in China but also all over the world have made huge progress in the workplace.
Since last year, the country has become the company’s biggest market, and the iPhone even became China’s biggest-selling phone for a few months earlier this year. But the challenges are increasing. There are several reasons that apple was successful in China, whereas its competitors, such as Google have failed.

In China, “the population controls have kept sulfur dioxide emissions down by 17.6% and reduced water shortages by 30.8%.

This is another way I support this policy.
