[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!
