The Earth Awards Seeks Sustainable Innovations

There are just a few more days to get your entry in for The Earth Awards 2010. With a selection committee made up of innovators like Richard Branson, Graydon Carter, Jane Goodall, Philippe Starck, and Diane von Furstenberg, The Earth Awards showcase innovative and SUSTAINABLE design in six categories: Fashion, Products, Systems, Built Environment, Future, and Social Justice.

Entries are judged based on their sustainability factor. They must be Ecological, Original, Measurable, Achievable, Useful, and Scalable. Last year, FAB.REcology by Neri Oxman took the grand prize. These organic forms adjust to their environment, as seen in this fantastic video.

Submissions are welcome through May 10, 2010 and the Awards gala is set for September 16th in London, along with a fabulous exhibition of sustainable design and a Sustainable Business Conference.
