Repair and reuse have been hot topics as of late, with everyone from technology renaissance man Saul Griffith to Worldchanging editor Alex Steffen advocating a shift towards repairable, long-lasting heirloom products. We’ve been covering reclaimed design for quite a while here on Inhabitat, and love to see objects given new life through smart reuse. Taking care of objects also makes good economic sense, and a little bit of TLC goes a long way towards producing a personalized object that you’ll cherish for a lot longer than the cheap store-bought variety.

The winner of this year’s contest will receive the fortune and fame of being showcased on Inhabitat in addition to a gift certificate for $200 in great green goods from the Inhabitat shop! Three runner ups will each receive an herb-sprouting eggling of your choice.

The deadline for submissions is Friday March 27th, so get cracking today!
