Vote for the Best Green Idea 2009!

National Georgraphic and Sun Chips are sponsoring a contest, The Green Effect,  to award $20,000 to allow a person, group or organization to put their green idea in to action. The finalists have been selected and the public is being asked to register and vote for the winning idea.

The idea behind this contest is that a lot of small steps can add up to big change. The field has been narrowed from 2206 entries to the final 10 and now you have an opportunity to help select the best idea.

So regeister at The Green Effect website and review the top 10 applications.  Select the one that you believe should win the $20,000 implementation money and cast your vote.

You can vote 1 time per day and the voting will take place between July 7 and July 20, 2009.

All of these ideas are great...it is really hard to choose! I would love to hear what you think.
