GreenSoul Shoes was invited to give a lecture on Social Entrepreneurship to high school kids from the Prep to Prep program in New York City.  These bright and outgoing kids have been picked after a rigorous selection process for a 14-month long after school program.  The program covers from advance academics to personal development.  During this summer, they are focusing on creating their own business plan.  Their business ideas range from a service to convert analog media to digital media for the non-techies to selling vintage dresses.  We could see how driven they were!  we have no doubt that they will be our future leaders and successful businessmen/women.

So about half a month ago, we announced a contest to find the packaging design for our shoebox. Today, we are happy to announce our winner: Meg Sullivan. She was a class of 2008 graphic design student at Yale, where she was also on the crew team for four years. Today, she works as a graphic designer in Norwalk, CT.

She tells us she loves design, photography, rowing, adventures, and all things funny, odd, colorful, or serene.

Check out her other designs here.
