After an overwhelming response, we are very pleased to announce the winners for the “Make A Green Pledge” contest. We would like to thank all contestants for their creative efforts. Two winners have been selected. Each winner gets to bring home a 111 Navy Chair. Modeled after the original aluminium Emeco Navy Chair (#1006) designed in 1944 for the U.S. Navy, each 111 Navy Chair contains a mix of 60 percent rPET plastic (recycled polyethylene terephthalate plastic) and a special combination of other materials including pigment and glass fiber for strength. It is estimated that more than three million PET plastic bottles will be recycled annually for the production of 111 Navy Chairs.  

 

Winning entries:  

“I pledge to use only what I need

So the ice caps will not retreat

So polar bears will not drown

So penguins will not frown

I pledge to reuse and recycle

Short distances I’ll run or cycle 

So our Mother Earth can stay

And be the same a decade away” by Jael Chloe  

 

“As an architectural student, I pledge to include sustainable architectural design to all my works to promote this concept. I believe that sustainable architectural design can be achieved by capitalizing on the sun’s energy, realizing the stack effect and using materials that has low embodied energy. Lastly, as architects, we should all pledge together with one voice to adopt the idea of reusing and recycling architectural materials with no end to their potential usefulness.” by Nigel Boey  

Winners will be contacted to arrange for prize collection.

Prizes uncollected by 30 September 2011 will be forfeited.
