There’s only a few days left to enter Inhabitat’s Spring Greening contest. Deadline is midnight, March 27th.

Repair and reuse have been hot topics as of late, with everyone from technology renaissance man Saul Griffith to Worldchanging editor Alex Steffen advocating a shift towards repairable, long-lasting heirloom products. We’ve been covering reclaimed design for quite a while here on Inhabitat, and love to see objects given new life through smart reuse. Taking care of objects also makes good economic sense, and a little bit of TLC goes a long way towards producing a personalized object that you’ll cherish for a lot longer than the cheap store-bought variety.

The winner of this year’s contest will receive the fortune and fame of being showcased on Inhabitat in addition to a gift certificate for $200 in great green goods from the Inhabitat shop! Three runner ups will each receive an herb-sprouting eggling of your choice.

More details at their site.
