2011 Show Us Your Green Photo Contest

Everyone wants to save the Rainforest, but most people don’t know how or think their individual actions will not make a difference. NOT TRUE! You can make small and simple green choices everyday that will help plants, animals and people in far away rainforests. We want to recognize YOU for your actions, and let you brag about them to the world!


How?

It’s simple. Take a photo of yourself taking a new green action, or even living your green life as you already do. Upload your photo below.

*** The Photo Contest has been extended. The new submission deadline is June 30th! ***


Need ideas?

Here are some actions you can take (and take a photo of yourself doing) that will have a direct impact on the rainforest: • Walk, ride a bike, take public transit to reduce your use of fossil fuels. • Buy greener gadgets and appliances, plant trees, switch to reusable shopping bags. • Turn down the thermostat, buy local produce, reduce your trash output. • Hold a event and donate proceeds to your favorite rainforest charity! • Click here for more ideas Photos don’t have to be fancy to win, we’re judging on enthusiasm and creativity! Pick any one of the actions above, or better yet, show us your own. Your action doesn’t have to be rainforest specific, anything goes! All green choices count! Just take a photo of yourself having fun while getting greener. And if you win, we’ll make sure your action is given the spotlight it deserves. The top 3 winners will receive prizes from our Rainforest Awareness Month sponsors. Good luck and have fun!
