Over the last few weeks we reached out to the creative community requesting their inspired interpretations of nature for our Earth Day Design Contest. All the submissions are in, now let the voting begin. You, all your friends, and the public-at-large is invited to vote between April 15-29. Winners will be announced on May 1.
We're listening. Which are the patterns you think are so beautiful you'd want to wrap your gifts in them? We know it's hard to pick just one, so every voter is invited to name their top three favs. And hey, there's a little something in it for you, too. Submit your choice and you'll see what we mean.
It is time for you to choose your favorites: Vote HERE.
News of the contest spread far and wide, we heard from artists from the UK, Canada, Hawaii, and across the continental US. For a closer look at each of the 22 submissions, complete with the artists' comments, read on.
For each entry, we pledged a $10 donation to the Earth Day Network to support their eco-loving mission across the globe. We love their tree-planting campaign, The Canopy Project, and awesome Green Schools Project. We are thrilled and honored to write a $220 check to such a worthy environmental nonprofit organization— truly the ones that are the driving force behind Earth Day every year. We hope this contest grows and we can give even more next year.
Additionally, to do some good near and far, we gave the designers the opportunity to name a local environmental charity of their choice to receive 5% of online sales if their patterns win the contest and go to print. Let's see what they came up with.
