Still Some Green for Green Design
Even with the tanking economy, green-design initiatives are managing to attract funding. Earlier this month, Design Green Now won $10,000 from Ideablob, an online community where users vote on their favorite entrepreneurial schemes. DGN holds panel discussions, “design jams,” and other events to foster conversations about the environment. (Metropolis’s editor in chief, Susan Szenasy, hosted a recent panel on new approaches to energy.) Watch a short video with highlights from past DGN events after the jump. Got your own brilliant business idea (green or otherwise) in need of some starter cash? Submit it to Ideablob for a chance at the next $10,000 award.
