We appreciate your willingness to share your ideas and also the time and effort you put into developing a proposal and submitting it to the contest. We have reviewed your proposal and found that it contained intriguing elements; however, have chosen not to advance it to the next round of competition. We encourage you to keep developing your idea.

We welcome you to stay involved in the Climate CoLab community: support and comment on proposals that have been named Finalists, and vote during the public voting period to help select the contest’s Popular Choice Winner. Climate CoLab will be opening more contests throughout the year and you are welcome to submit your proposal to those contests as well. Keep up the great work. We hope that by working together, we all can create solutions that wouldn't otherwise be possible. Sincerely, Contest Fellows If there are additional comments from the Judges & Fellows, they will be included below.
This proposal presents a good idea and makes a convincing case for product labelling. The idea presented is, however, not new at all and it has been tried before without much success. Unfortunately, research suggests that giving people more information doesn't lead them to making better decisions for the environment.
The proposal also mentions rewards in the title, but doesn't address them in the actual proposal. Without a clear plan for the reward system and how it can remain economically viable, this project is quite unlikely to work and even less likely to be effective. The proposal could have been strengthened a lot by giving more specific details when it comes to rewards.
We recommend that you keep working on the idea, but that you come up with a more specific plan that will address the most likely objections that readers will have.
