Eco-Innovators and procrastinators have more time to submit their recycled creation to the City of Largo’s Recycled Innovations Contest.  This online contest encourages innovators to make use-able items with the contents of their trash can.

All entries must be made of 75 percent or more recycled material or material that would otherwise be discarded.  Contrary to a recycled art show, Recycled Innovations are items that may be reused in daily activities. Accepted entries will be functional items made of materials that can be diverted from the waste stream.

The City of Largo’s Recycled Innovation Show will give participants the opportunity to get their designs noticed across Tampa Bay and beyond.  Innovators will be vying for innovative prizes such a solar/wind powered charges for cell phones, MP3 players and other electronics, environmental board games, and learning toys.  Prizes will be awarded to the greatest innovators in various age categories:

  • Tiny Innovators
  • Junior Innovators
  • Tween Innovators
  • Techie Innovators
  • Macgyvers

Deadline for entry including photo submission and entry description is Wednesday, October 28.  Online voting begins November 1-12.  Winners will be announced on America Recycles Day, November 15.  Interested innovators can apply online at or call 727.586.7424 for more information.

who we are:

Early in 2008, St. Petersburg College recognized its responsibility to model to our students, employees and community ways to minimize global warming emissions and provide the knowledge to our graduates to help achieve a more environmentally friendly future. Because of this, the College made sustainability (defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs) a top priority. As a result, the Office for Sustainability was established.

what we do:

Working alongside internal and external partners, the Office for Sustainability focuses on the following areas of environmental stewardship: educational programs and corporate training, energy and natural resource conservation, green buildings and facilities, carbon emissions, recycling and student activities.
