Yoshida Manufacturing, which is one of the first zipper companies to focus on the environmental impact of its products, recently announced a contest in the United States called Builing A Better Tomorrow, Today, according to Reuters.

Contestants will submit videos of their innovative green design ideas to YouTube for review and the winner, who will receive $1,500, will be announced at the U.S. Green Buiolding Council's annual conference in November.

The company will also donate $1,000 to charity in the winner's name, and two runners-up will receive iPads. Every video must be two minutes or under and clearly demonstrate a way to enhance sustainable practices.

"We created this video contest to foster the sharing of ideas and innovation in sustainable, green building practices," senior vice president of YKK AP American said in a statement.

Those who are interested in making their own homes more sustainable may want to invest in bamboo woven shades. Bamboo regrows two-to-five years after being cleared and requires no pesticides or chemicals to harvest or maintain, so it is much more eco-friendly than other materials. Additionally, bamboo can add a distinctive touch of the natural world to a room.
