"The recycling symbol is used worldwide, but there's no emblem for the act of reuse."
Interested in more design contests for a good cause? Earth911 and GOOD Maker are teaming up to host a design challenge to create an universal reuse symbol.
In 1969, Gary Anderson, a student at the University of Southern California, created the recycling icon for a design competition of environmental issues. Today, that symbol is internationally recognized. However, recycling is not the only solution to the issue of waste.
Submit a reuse design from July 18 to August 22. The Earth 911 design team will select designs to go to the voting period and then voting will be open to the public from August 23 through September 6. Winners will be announced on or before September 13. Check out GOOD Maker for more details and contest rules.
The first round winners and the honorable mentions have been announced! Explore our website to view the top designs and learn about the designers!
