The Green Effect

Recently SunChips, Frito-Lay’s popular line of multigrain snacks, reported they will introduce the first fully compostable snack chip bag made from plant-based materials by Earth Day 2010.
They have joined forces with National Geographic to create
the Green Effect, an initiative to inspire individuals to spark a green movement in their communities.

You could be the one to make a difference in your community—for the planet! Submit a description of your Green Effect idea by June 8, 2009. Ten finalists will be announced July 7, 2009. Online viewers and a distinguished panel of judges will review these inspiring ideas.

They will award $20,000 each to five people or groups that have the best ideas for green change. The five winners will also be profiled in National Geographic, and the winners will travel to Washington, D.C., to share their projects with environmental leaders.

This could be a great educational family or home school group project! For more information visit The Green Effect and see if your idea could be a winner.
