Convenient Truths: Last Day to Submit a Video; Voting Starts Tomorrow


OK, procrastinators: we've warned you for weeks that the entry period for Treehugger and Seventh Generation's Convenient Truths contest would be ending on February 28th. Well, today's the day, and we'll stop accepting submissions of user-created videos at 11pm EST. There are only a few hours left to show the world your efforts to fight the climate crisis, and to get a chance at the nearly $30,000 in very cool prizes that the winners will take home.

If you can't get a camera and a concept together today, there will still be a reason to get out of bed tomorrow: rating starts for all videos that users have submitted. You'll be able to watch the videos at Treehugger, and use our rating system on the contest's home page to give a "thumbs up" to the videos you like. The top vote-getters will move on to the final round, in which our star-studded panel of judges decides the contest winners.

While you do have to wait until tomorrow to start voting, you can start incorporating some of the ideas presented in these videos into your own routine today -- we can't procrastinate on that, either!
