REMINDER: Deadline on Monday! Stop the Paper Towels Graphic Design Competition

REMINDER: DEADLINE IS THIS COMING MONDAY
Years of TV ads have taught us that if we spill something, the first thing we should do is reach for that quicker picker upper – the paper towel. But at what cost? Every day, over 3,000 tons of paper towel waste is produced in the United States alone and in the production of one ton of paper towels, 17 whole trees are cut down and 20,000 gallons of water are consumed, contributing to deforestation, water pollution and global warming. It’s time to break the paper towel chains of oppression and make the switch to reusable towels!
To help in this movement, Inhabitat  is teaming up with PeopleTowels  to launch a green graphic design competition  to see what illustrations you would come up with to print on a PeopleTowels reusable cloth hand towel  to help inspire the world to cut paper towel waste! The grand prize winner will receive $500, a chance to see their design printed on cloth towels that are sold online, and 10% royalty  on sales. The winning design will also be published on Inhabitat.com for the world to see, as well as our t-shirts. It’s a win for you, a win for the planet and a great career-booster to budding graphic designers out there! So get your designing caps on and get your submission in today!
Submissions deadline is March 7th
