Our Planet, Our Stuff, Our Choice Video Competition

Our Planet, Our Stuff, Our Choice Video Contest - "And we all make decisions about our stuff every day."
Video Contest Winners

The stuff you use every day affects your environment, your community, and your planet. EPA sponsored a video competition to raise awareness of the connection between the environment and the "stuff" people use, consume, recycle, and throw away.

We asked you to share your ideas about recycling, waste reduction, composting and reducing consumption, and over 250 people responded by creating videos to help motivate and inspire others to take action. We have selected 10 entries we think best demonstrate how individuals can make a difference in protecting the environment in their own community.

The top 10 entries are available on EPA's YouTube Channel. We encourage you to share them freely. Link to them and pass them on to friends, family and colleagues. Download them and take them into classrooms and meetings. This video contest has allowed the creativity of the American public to deliver a more meaningful environmental message. After all, it's our planet, our stuff, our choice.
