One Week Left to Enter in Yahoo! Green’s “Make it Green” Contest

In the Spring on Ecolocalizer we featured the start of the Yahoo! Green “Make it Green” Competition. Now with only one week left, the possibilities for new entries are endless. If you have a brilliant eco-creative idea, and want to see it manufactured for real, then enter now. Yahoo! Green explains:

“the best ideas will be made into real products and stocked on real shelves. The innovator will get a share of the sales for 20 years, plus $2,500 and possibly an appearance on PBS’s Everyday Edisons.  It’s a great way to turn an idea into reality.  For this last week, we’re waiving the submission fee.   We’ve had more than 110 ideas submitted and 10,000 votes from the community.”

So what is most popular idea so far? Well, the top idea now shown on the Yahoo! Green “Make it Green” Competition site is plant fiber diapers. Do you think you can come up with another brilliant planet saving invention? If so, the time is ripe to see it manifest.
