Up for the Challenge? Eco-Style

Until May 6, 2007, BBC and Newsweek will be accepting nominations for the World Challenge 2007, a competition that seeks out businesses and projects not only make a profit, but also put something back to the community. So go ahead and nominate an eco-entrepreneur!

Last year's winner was Maximus, a papermaking firm that makes high-quality products from a variety of wastes, including paper from offices and bark from banana trees. But what sets them apart is that they manufacture paper from elephant dung, with a portion of the sales donated to an elephant orphanage.
