There's only one more week left to submit product ideas to the Make It Green program sponsored by Yahoo! Green (deadline is June 30th). The goal is to bring the best ideas into real products, to be stocked on real shelves. The innovator who submitted the idea will get a share of the sales for 20 years, plus $2,500, and possibly an appearance on PBS's "Everyday Edisons."
It's a great way to turn a fresh green idea into reality. As an added bonus, we're told that, for this last week, the good folks at Yahoo! are waiving the submission fee!
According to a spokesperson from the challenge, there's been more than 150 ideas submitted and 13,000 votes from the community. Here's some of the most interesting ideas submitted so far:
The most popular idea so far is plant fiber diapers.
Other cool stuff includes the vampire power cure and a fridge-cam that lets you see inside your fridge when you're at the store and forgot what's in there. There's also a stove that knows when to turn itself off.
