Life is full of choices when it comes to protecting the environment. You can take small steps from the comfort of your own home or office (always a good thing!), or you can go 'hard core' and experience conservation in the heart of some of nature's most fragile environments. In celebration of its ENVIRONMENT Papers line, Neenah Paper has launched an 'Eco-Trip for Two' sweepstakes in which one lucky winner will have the opportunity to help make the world a better place through an environmental adventure to the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica.
The Neenah 'Eco-Trip for Two' sweepstakes runs from July 30 to September 30, 2010. During that time, designers, printers, and anyone with a passion for the environment can enter to win by registering at neenahpaper.com/environmentcontest. One winner will be randomly selected from all entries to receive the all-expenses-paid* grand prize trip for two which includes airfare, ground transportation, six days and five nights of accommodations at an ecologically friendly resort as well as a guided day-trip to the Neenah Reforestation Project, a project in partnership with the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin and Friends of the Osa. Neenah will offset the carbon footprint for the winner's entire trip with carbon credits.
In addition to the grand prize, Neenah will award three US$100 gift certificates (to REI, Keen Footwear and Patagonia) as secondary prizes. To be eligible for the gift certificates, participants can visit neenahpaper.com/environmentcontest and answer five easy questions designed to test their environmental awareness. It doesn't matter whether they're an environmental expert or need a 'green' primer, all completed quizzes qualify to win.
Says Kristen Hogan, senior brand manager for Neenah Paper, 'While the eco-trip will give two people the chance of a lifetime to experience the reforestation project first-hand, the broader message is that even a simple act like purchasing environmentally conscious paper can set off a chain of events that ultimately leads to the protection and conservation of the world’s natural resources.'
