Eco-Luxury Green Jewelry Designer Rebekah Green Suits Up and Sends Out the Signal to Find the Next Great Eco-Hero

Eco-Hero Contest Offers Online Forum for Budding Philanthropists to Submit Stories of Making a Difference, Be Rewarded for Their Efforts

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - August 25, 2010) -  As the summer blockbuster season draws to a close, the greatest damsel in the most distress -- Mother Earth -- has yet to be saved. Environmentalist, green jewelry designer and trusted sidekick to eco-heroes-in-training Rebekah Green today announced the launch of a monthly "Eco-Hero Contest" through her website, http://www.rebekahgreen.com, that aims to inspire and reward globally-conscious, environmentally-savvy heroes doing their part to make the world a better place.

"Our generation represents a paradigm shift in global consciousness and community citizenship," explained Green. "Philanthropy is the new sexy. Charity is the new black. Everything we do is done in style, and that's why I want to reward my Eco-Hero contestants with a pair of my 100% recycled gold, fair trade gemstone earrings for the best, most inspiring story."

The contest asks users of all ages to submit their stories of action -- whether they are tales of protecting neglected animals, cleaning up littered highways or performing acts of kindness on a local or even global scale -- along with a photograph via the contest upload form on http://www.rebekahgreen.com.

Throughout the course of the month, visitors to http://www.rebekahgreen.com will vote on which story they find to be the most uplifting, inspirational and heroic. On the last day of each month, the submission with the most votes wins his or her choice of Green's handcrafted, 100 percent recycled 14K gold earrings worth up to $100 (http://www.rebekahgreen.com/store.php).
