July 6th, 2005 A few months back we wrote up the JuiceBag - an urban daypack with integrated high-efficiency solar panel that converts sunshine into electricity to charge your cell phone, MP3 player or PDA. it was one of the top-rating stories in May. Now Greenpeace and Reware (makers of JuiceBags) have joined forces to bring attention to the issue of global warming. In July, competitors in the Greenpeace-sponsored “Thin Ice” contest will have the opportunity to win one of Reware’s Juice Bags, solar daypacks that use natural sunlight to make electricity. Project Thin Ice contestants win prizes by taking certain actions, such as signing petitions, and accumulating points. The highest point earner on July 8th will win a Juice Bag. Project Thin Ice 2005 began when Greenpeace sent Arctic explorers Lonnie Dupre and Eric Larsen to the polar ice cap to collect invaluable global warming data. This July, the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise will head to Greenland and visit research stations and work with scientists to study the evidence of global warming impacts in the Arctic.
