Win A Bike And A Write-Up In Popular Science!

Instructables/PopSci Go Green

As Collin has mentioned, TreeHugger has teamed up with Instructables and Popular Science to bring you a super-cool contest promoting DIY eco-friendly projects. You don't have to be as craft-tastic as Martha Stewart to have a shot at a prize. All you need is a little inspiration, a camera, and decent instruction-giving skills. What are you doing to go green? Recycling floppy discs? Greening your roof? Perfecting your recipe for homemade yogurt? Use TreeHugger as your muse and search our archive for "DIY," or, peruse our guides for How to Go Green. Hit the jump to see a few examples of the submitted projects in living color.If the dog days of summer have got you feeling lazy, the submissions below should fuel your fire.


CD Spidle Earring Stand - An unwanted CD case and CD spins into mod as an earring display.


Solar Thermal Water Heater - The back of a small refrigerator plays the protagonist in this blueprint to solar energy.


Wooden Wedge Bike - Salvaged wood takes an unusual but thrifty shape.
