THE STORY:

UPDATE: Local business Cherry Republic announced they will match the Patagonia/Moosejaw prize! A first place finish can nab us another $5,000! 

There are 60-year-old crude oil pipelines under the pristine waters of the Straits of Mackinac, posing an unthinkable threat to the world’s largest source of fresh surface water.  It was only three years ago that another 60-year old pipeline ruptured in the Kalamazoo River, dumping nearly a million gallons of toxic tar sands oil and destroying several miles of that river.

Last summer the Michigan Land Use Institute (MLUI) partnered with other Great Lakes environmental groups and climate change activists to spearhead a hugely successful rally at the Mackinac Bridge. The event featured global climate leader Bill McKibben and began to attract media attention to the ticking time bomb that these Canadian-owned pipelines pose to the Great Lakes. And yet the threat still remains largely unknown to the general public.

MLUI wants to launch a major public awareness campaign to raise the profile of the risk posed by pipelines to Michigan and to other Great Lakes states—and to connect them to real alternative solutions. This issue is of critical importance, merging two pressing economic and environmental public priorities: a desire to protect the water quality and economic benefit of the Great Lakes, and a concern to protect the earth from global climate change.
