If finances were no object, we'd be most likely off the grid by now (or at least producing most of our own energy through wind and solar power), and would have implimented many other systems to make ourselves as self-sustaining as possible. These would be things such as a solar hot water heater, wood stove, and rain and greywater capturing systems.
But alas, all of these are quite large expenses, and ones we will continue to slowly work towards. Which is fine.
However, if the opportunity ever comes along to implement one of these ahead of schedule, then we would jump at the chance.
SoNice, a soy milk producer, is currently having a contest to do just that.
They are running a contest, for which the grand prize is $5,000! You simply write, in 300 words or less, how you would use the money to make yourself more sustainable and create a more organic world. You can find out more information here.
