Could You Be the Next Green Model?

After watching the season premiere of Project Runway Season 6 last night, I was pumped. I may have attempted a model walk in my stilettos down the catwalk (hallway) to my room. But at just barely 5 feet tall, my modeling experience will be limited to posing in front of the bathroom mirror.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to be a model though, why not be an eco-friendly one?

Project Green Search, hosted by The Greenloop, is looking for eco-conscious models to participate in its modeling competition.

Participants must be at least 17 years old and dedicated to professionalism, environmental awareness and social responsibility. Contestants will be required to volunteer for at least 10 hours to an environmental group including The Natural Step, Green Corps, Natural Resources Defense Council, Global Green, The Sierra Club and others.

During Portland Fashion Week (October 7-11), a sustainable fashion week featuring only eco-designers, judges will score the top 10 finalists based on a photo shoot, interview and runway walk. The judges, including Darren Moore, Deborah Lindquist, Josie Maran, Michael Kaliski, Starre Vartan and Summer Rayne Oakes, will then choose a winner.
