Win $3,000 in a Green Gadget Design Contest


December 6th, 2008 by  


[social_buttons]You’ve done it.  I’ve done it. We’ve all squawked at the lack of green-ness current gadgets have to offer. In fact, Greenpeace has built an entire campaign around it.





How can we not? It’s kinda fun! Especially when — somewhat ironically — the greenest sounding tech company of them all fails miserably: enter iPhone maker,  Apple.

Question is, do you have the design chops to put companies like Apple to shame?

If so, then you could win $3,000. That’s right. The Greener Gadgets Conference is launching its 2nd design competition, and the top prize is 3 Gs!

The competition asks design firms, emerging designers and design students to pony up the next-best-green-tech. The gadget must address issues like energy, carbon footprint, toxicity and social development. And that’s just to name a few!

The top fifty designs will be published on GreenerGadgets.com for visitors to vote and comment on. The finalists will be showcased at the Greener Gadgets Conference in February of 2009 in New York City.

To register for the competition go to GreenerGadgets.com
