Yahoo!’s online Make-It-Green campaign is looking for eco-friendly product ideas to improve people’s lives and help the planet.
Submit your ideas to http://green.yahoo.com/makeitgreen. If your idea is selected, Yahoo!, in partnership with Edison Nation, offers a chance at a share of sales royalties and a possible appearance on the Emmy Award-winning PBS television series Everyday Edisons.
You also can give the “thumbs up” and vote for your favorite product ideas online. A green idea can mean using fewer resources, reusing materials or finding a better way to get rid of unwanted stuff.
Among the ideas Yahoo! has liked so far: the Kyoto Box – a solar-powered cooker constructed from two cardboard boxes, aluminum foil and an acrylic cover. It saves energy, trees, the atmosphere and even lives … and costs about $6 to make.
