Starting today, 22 April 2009, Mimoco's GURP, or GreenBot USB Recycling Program, launches a three week long video contest to celebrate its green mission and we're happy to be on board to support it. With a goal of recycling old or unwanted USB flash drives in return for gift certificates toward a Mimobot (the designer drives that Mimoco makes), it's an easy and rewarding way to help stop the glut of electronics waste.
In addition, Mimoco's CEO Evan Blaustein announced that for every video submitted, Mimoco will help save 1,000 square feet of rain forest. The grand prize winner will be chosen by three judges, one each from Notcot, Inhabitat and Cool Hunting, and will receive an 8 GB Mimobot flash drive of their choice. To enter, submit a minute-long video about how GURP recycles your flash drives. The contest runs until Mother's Day, Sunday, 10 May 2009.
Get your cameras rolling and visit Mimoco for more information on both GURP and the Mother Earth contest.
