Thanks to REPREVE for sponsoring today's discussion
Last month, Our Daily Green shared some of the great ways REPREVE is giving a second life to all our plastic bottles.
Years ago, when I was a kid walking to school 10 miles each way, uphill, we didn't have water in bottles, so in some ways, this is a little bit of preaching to the choir. But years ago, neither did we have polar fleece that made The North Face jackets or Haggar pants or cool green beanies from REPREVE, modeled generously by my brother and his family, the next generation.
So while my nephew and niece have to listen to Auntie FreshGreenKim wax poetic about the way it was, they also can get excited about the way it is. And have a chance to win fabulous prizes in the:
#TurnItGreen X Games contest:
Dates: Jan. 1-31
Grand Prize: $5,000 cash
To celebrate the X Games, REPREVE invites participants to share how they "turn it green", or how they live a more sustainable life by recycling or reusing materials, by sharing an image or video on Twitter, Instagram or Vine with the #TurnItGreen hashtag.
Once you share the image or video with the hashtag, you will be entered into a sweepstakes where five entries will be randomly selected as the Top Five. Those five will be voted on by visitors to Repreve[dot]com where the image or video with the most votes will win a $5,000 cash prize. The other four video entries will receive a REPREVE Jacket and a Go-Pro camera (retail valued at over $350).
