PRIZES: 1st Place: Lunch in Beverly Hills with “green advocates” Christopher Knight and Adrianne Curry, co-hosts of the VH-1 reality show, “My Fair Brady”
2nd Place: $500 gift certificate to Wal-Mart

BACK STORY: According to a new nationwide survey, conducted by Synovate for Green Plug, more than 60 percent of American consumers regard the consumer electronics status quo as “wasteful” or “frustrating.” A staggering 379 million discarded and obsolete external power supplies are destined to end up in U.S. landfills this year alone. Green Plug technology minimizes solid waste by enabling consumers to keep their chargers.
