Make Time for a Green Cause: Clock Design Competition
Here's another entrant to Green Design Contest Season: Make Time for a Green Cause is a New York City-based green clock design competition and fundraiser for Trees for the Future, a non-profit reforestation organization. The challenge is to conceive and create a clock, incorporating green design elements; entries are being accepted now through November 5 at Spring, in Brooklyn's Dumbo neighborhood. Then, at the design show from November 16 through 18 (with an opening party November 16, from 6 - 9 pm), the clocks will be auctioned off, and half the proceeds will benefit Trees for the Future (the other half goes to the designer). For every dollar raised, ten trees will be planted (and we can always use more trees, right?); the goal of the show is to plant at least 100,000 trees.
For more information, check out the Make Time site, which has details on the competition, related events and other pertinent info (like how the heck you design a green clock). Good luck -- the clock is ticking! ::Make Time for a Green Cause, ::Trees for the Future, ::Spring and ::Thwart Design
