New contest for all you crafters! Answered


For all you nifty crafters out there, Greenwala just partnered up with HP to add on to their green-themed contest with the Choose to Reuse contest. Participants upload a photo of their latest refurbished creation.

As an example of some things people have been submitting: a soda tab halter top, vinyl record potting plants, old shower curtain turned into a rain coat, etc.

The winner of the contest will win a new HP mini laptop and a printer! Plus Greenwala is donating $500 to the nonprofit company Acterra http://www.acterra.org/

Awesome contest -- every day, I see something new that I "oooo and ahhhh" about. Personally, I love the wacko soda tab bustier -- here's the link if anyone wants to take a look: http://www.greenwala.com/greenwala_contests/all/5-Choose-to-Reuse-Sponsored-by-Hewlett-Packard-HP/entries/all/97-Can-Tab-Warrior-Woman-Halter-Top We women always have to suffer for fashion ;)

I also think that the t-shirt design contest is probably up everyone's alley here (and that awards $250 cash!): http://www.greenwala.com/greenwala_contests/all/4-Greenwala-Tshirt-Design-Contest

I entered something cool - go look, it's a purse made from a Starbucks bag. Thanks for the info.

I saw that!! Very cool! I'm very tempted to go buy some starbucks coffee (i'm out of coffee anyways) and try one myself :)

Have you checked out the dress made from plastic bags? It was just entered today!

Oh my god that is great! I hope she wins, I voted for her. I hate the overuse of the underuse of plastic bags.
