While soccer fans plot out their viewing schedule for the upcoming World Cup (Murphy’s? Kate’s? The Iron Bull?), King County has launched a related contest, the Green World Cup, that focuses on eco-friendly living.
The contest is an effort to spotlight creative and different ways people embrace ‘going green’ around the globe. Residents can share their suggestions, stories and examples for judging by a local panel of eco-experts. Entries should briefly describe how a community in a country or culture outside the U.S. is living green – for example, a high tech toilet from Japan, or the donkeys that haul recycling in Sicily.
Entrants can submit a video or picture along with a written description. The most innovative, unique and effective idea will win four tickets to see the Seattle Sounders FC play the Houston Dynamo on August 8, 2010 at Qwest Field. Entries will be featured on the King County web site and Facebook page.
Submissions may be made online or mailed to Tom Watson, King County EcoConsumer, 201 S. Jackson St. #701, Seattle, WA, 98104. All submissions must be received by June 25. Entries are welcome in any language.
