Designers, enter to win $10,000 in the HP Laptop Bag Design Competition + Poo-Powered Motorcycles : Inhabitat Weekly August 31st
|Dear Inhabitants -
It was an epic week for environmental news as the Obama Administration finalized a 54.5 MPG fuel efficiency standard for 2025 and Hurricane Isaac touched down on the Gulf Coast as we shared a stunning map of every tropical storm in the past 150 years. On the subject of disaster relief, we
announced a groundbreaking new conference taking place in St. Louis on October 29th, called the Sustainable Disaster Recovery Conference. It looks to be an inspiring event - find out more here >
This week we found inspiration in a number of surprising places,
from a Chinese mall topped with a green roof and 4 villas to an underwater wheelchair and a giant glass globe that can concentrate solar energy 10,000 times. We're also thrilled to launch our latest contest (where you can win $10,000 by designing a chic laptop bag)!
