If it’s not enough to kick back at a local pub to watch the upcoming World Cup tournament, King County invites county residents to participate in the “Green World Cup” contest.
Residents can share suggestions, stories and examples of creative and different ways of green living, which will be judged by a local panel of eco-experts.
Briefly describe how a community in another country or people from your own culture are living green through an innovative waste reduction method, green technology, alternative transportation, a unique recycling or reuse method, or a carbon emission-cutting measure.
Entrants can submit a video or picture along with a written description. The most innovative, unique and effective idea will win four tickets to see the Seattle Sounders FC play the Houston Dynamo on August 8 at Qwest Field. Entries will be featured on the King County web site and Facebook page.
The two runner-up prizes are Alchemy Goods recycled backpack and an Energizer solar charger.
Submissions may be made online or mailed to Tom Watson, King County EcoConsumer, 201 S. Jackson St. #701, Seattle, WA, 98104. All submissions must be received by June 25. Entries are welcome in any language.
