Philanthropy Is the New Sexy: Find the Next Great Eco-Hero

As the summer blockbuster season draws to a close, the greatest damsel in the most distress — Mother Earth — has yet to be saved. Environmentalist, green jewelry designer and trusted sidekick to eco-heroes-in-training Rebekah Green today announced the launch of a monthly “Eco-Hero Contest” through her website, http://www.rebekahgreen.com, that aims to inspire and reward globally-conscious, environmentally-savvy heroes doing their part to make the world a better place.

The contest asks users of all ages to submit their stories of action — whether they are tales of protecting neglected animals, cleaning up littered highways or performing acts of kindness on a local or even global scale — along with a photograph via the contest upload form on http://www.rebekahgreen.com.

Throughout the course of the month, visitors to the Rebekah Green website will vote on which story they find to be the most uplifting, inspirational and heroic. On the last day of each month, the submission with the most votes wins his or her choice of Green’s handcrafted, 100 percent recycled 14K gold earrings worth up to $100.
