lunchOK, what’s more shocking? The fact that Christopher Knight and Adrianne Curry have successful reality television careers OR that 379 million discarded and obsolete external power supplies are destined to end up in U.S. landfills this year alone?

If you answered both you got it right!!! Introducing What’s Under Your Desk — a contest sponsored by the geniuses over at Green Plug. What’s Under Your Desk challenges people to grab a digital camera and snap a shot of…can you guess…WHAT’S UNDER YOUR DESK!!! Then, simply mail it in to the Green Plug blog and cross your fingers that they randomly draw your name.

First prize is lunch with “green advocates” and reality television experts, Christopher Knight and Adrianne Curry …also known as Peter Brady and the first America’s Next Top Model, respectively.

Second place is a fancy $500 gift certificate to Walmart (say what you will, but 500 dollars is 500 dollars, ya’ll). And third place is a $250 cash donation to a green charity of your choice.

Green Plug’s CEO, Frank Paniagua, Jr. says, “Consider this a case of show and tell. We’re looking for examples of a problem that plagues each and every one of us — that unsightly tangle of wires, black bricks and wall warts that supply your computer, printer, phone, desk lamp and who knows what else. Just multiply what’s at your feet by millions that’s how it is that a staggering 379 million discarded and obsolete external power supplies are destined to end up in U.S. landfills this year alone.”

The winners will be chosen on Earth Day, April 22. So head on over to Green Plug and show them just what you got cookin’ down there.

    How can a person in good conscience take a gift certificate (say what you will, but that’s what is is) to an “un-green” and unethical business. Just because of this I won’t be signing up for this contest or promoting it.

    If…I do decide to shop at a big box store I usually chose Target since they offer more “greener” choices. Why didn’t Green Plug offer a gift certificate to Target or some local store of the winner’s choice inline with what Green Plug’s mission?

    Or is this more green washing?
