So many things have been happening in the Betterific world these last few weeks and we’ve been desperately trying to keep up with the whirlwind of activity. We are happy to report that we have a lot of campaigns with fantastic brands in the pipeline and we’ve been gaining new users every day. We love it when people get creative and great ideas get some attention, which is why we’re posting this past week’s top ten ideas! There are some fantastic ideas floating around on the site and we want them to get as much attention as possible. Take a gander below, visit the site to vote on them, and post a few of your own if you haven’t already!

P.S. This week we launched a new campaign with frozen yogurt chain 16 Handles on the site! If you like the idea of winning 1 year of free frozen yogurt or a $25 gift card and the chance to talk with the chain’s CEO and founder about your ideas, go to the site and let 16 Handles know how you would make the frozen yogurt experience even better!

Wouldn't it be better if Kickstarter added a store section to their website, for all the funded projects.

Wouldn't it be better if sinks had two plugs - one for perfectly usable "grey water" (eg that which is wasted while waiting for water to heat up) and one for the dirty stuff

Wouldn't it be better if fans could invest in an old show to bring it back to life?

Wouldn't it be better if there were handyman or contractor companies that you could hire to assist you with projects, so that they could teach you how to do the project while completing it AND it should cut down on your costs because you are providing labor.

Wouldn't it be better if there were acoustical paint such that you could add a coat and it would remain flat on the wall but have properties in it that would absorb sounds so a room with a lot of "cold," hard, flat surfaces would not become and echo chamber?

Wouldn't it be better if building/house recycling bins would have stickers showing what types of plastic are recyclable in your area? (as some districts are unable to recycle type 6 etc.)

Wouldn't it be better if Whole Foods hot and cold bar offered section divided to-go trays for when you're craving various food types and don't want to mix them together?

Wouldn't it be better if Foursquare would remember the person you last checked in with, so that when you spend the day together you don't have to keep finding them over and over again?

Wouldn't it be better if car trunks had built in refrigerators for transporting groceries or could be filled with ice and used as coolers when necessary?

Wouldn't it be better if I could track where the UPS truck that will deliver my package is (day of delivery) on a map?

Thank you to all of our top ten weekly idea posters! We love your ideas! Happy innovating!
