Propose A C02-Reducing Product Or Invention, Win € 500,000 In The Postcode Lottery Green Challenge!

If you’ve got an invention that reduces greenhouse gas emissions, pitch your idea to the judges at The Postcode Lottery Green Challenge for a chance to receive € 500,000 to develop your business plans.

This Netherlands-based contest has perked the interest of green inventors and designs worldwide to develop environmentally friendly goods. Previous winners include American inventor Molly Morse’s “Mango Materials,” a recyclable bioplastic to be used in a wide range of common products, and British inventor Nick Christy’s Water Recycling Shower in 2011.


To be considered for the big prize, your invention needs to cut down on C02 emissions, be a well-developed idea, able to be made within two years of receiving the cash injection and must incorporate Cradle2Cradle (sustainable) themes into the designs.

In addition to the € 500,000 investment presented to the grand prize recipient, one or two finalists will also win € 200,000 towards their promising green products. The five most brilliant minds with the best C02-clipping creations will be invited to Amsterdam for the announcement of the grand prize winner on September 16th. If you’d like to throw your carbon-cutting inventions into the ring, you’ve got until July 17th to send your business pitch to The Postcode Lottery Green Challenge.
