Design Boom's 2008 Green Earth Design Winner: "Greening"
After evaluation almost 4,000 designs from 91 different countries, the judges of the 2008 Green Earth competition, sponsored by Design Boom, came down to one winner: Greening, by Ji Yoon Yang from Korea.
Greening is a set of commitment cards that call for your green fingerprint as a symbol of your promise to keep the eco-friendly pledge written on the card... commitments like: "I, (name), will use mugs rather than paper cups," "I, (name), will take public transportation if possible, "I, (name), will use reusable bags when I go grocery shopping," and "I, (name), will stop using disposable chopsticks."
Greening is designed as a stand-up card, so that after you fill in your name and make your thumb print, you fold the card and pop out the tree. Then put the card in the best place to remind you to do your Greening!
Unfortunately, Greening has not been produced for sale as yet; but in the meantime, you might think of creating some things to remind you to keep your commitments to stay green!
