Seventh Generation is trying to green your home with its cleaners, toilet paper, and other household products. Now they want to take care of some other areas of the house — or at least give you the cash to make it happen.
The winner the Seventh Generation Earth Day Contest will get some green all right, in the form of $5,000. All you have to do to enter is share the story of a real-life Mother Nature. No, it’s not your favorite tall weather tale. Instead, Seventh Generation wants to know about the one person who most inspires you to treat the planet nicely.
There are a few sample stories on the company website. One features someone’s neighbor, who always shares her green tips and products. She sounds a little nosey, no?
Another story comes from a guy whose wife helped make their home a safer place for the Earth, as well as their newborn daughter.
In addition to the cash, one winner will receive:
- A year’s supply of Seventh Generation Products for a healthier Planet Home — for both the winner and the nominated Mother Nature.
- An Inspiration Prize of a $2,500 donated in the name of the winner’s Mother Nature to an organization working to make the world a safer place.
Six other finalists and their nominated Mother Nature will receive a year’s supply of Seventh Generation products for a healthier Planet Home. Check out the entry form for more contest details. The deadline for entry is May 31, 2010.
