If you read my recent post Are You too Lazy to Recycle?, you would know that becoming an earth-friendly individual is a new development in my life. With each passing day, I am gradually reducing my carbon footprint. I am eager to find new ways to preserve my little piece of the planet. I am hoping that you are doing the same!
In support of Earth Day, the staff at Parenting Help Me would like to offer you the opportunity to win one of several eco-friendly gifts. Just submit an activity or idea that you and your family use to help protect and conserve your environment. If it’s green, it’s good. We will select the top 2 ideas and feature them on our website.
Our first place winner will receive a thermal tote from California Innovations. This is a huge tote (23″ x 7.88″). (You can actually fit a small child in it! My son likes to play hide and seek in my tote:) It will keep foods frozen for a very long time. Never use a plastic bag again!
Our first runner up will receive a SIGG Safari Fun kids water bottle. These bottles are 100% recyclable, ultra-lightweight, nearly indestructible, have no scent or taste transfer, and 0% leaching of any substances (BPA, BPB, or any phthalates). Bottles are made in Switzerland from a single piece of aluminum and is seamless. SIGG is also a member of the “1% for the planet” organization where 1% of all sales are committed to environmental causes.
We will also be giving away small prizes for honorable mention. All of the honorable mention gifts are handcrafted from recycled materials and made with love by artisans we discovered in our quest for eco-friendly gifts.
Abigail’s recycled crayons are one of our honorable mention gifts. You can check out the inspiring story behind her recycled crayons in my post Save the Crayons, Save the World.
To enter, simply post your idea in the comment section below (must be on this page). You do not have to use your real or full name. However, email addresses must be accurate in order to contact the winners for shipment of their gift. Email addresses will not appear on the site and will ALWAYS be kept private! Contest ends April 15th, 2009. Winners will be featured on our blog on Earth Day, April 22nd, 2009.
Good luck and keep those unique and innovative ideas coming!
