It's not what you think. We haven't migrated to the other side. The PLASTIC we're offering up won't leach into your food, but it will leach into your mind and make you look twice at the plastic in your life.
You may have noticed on our website that on Earth Day we featured a recently released book about plastic - called 'PLASTIC: A Toxic Love Story' - by journalist Susan Freinkel. Feel free to check out our review of this important book here. We mentioned that we had contributed some product to a promotional Earth Day Plastic-free Prize Pack that the publishers, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH), were raffling off as part of the book launch.
Weeellll, it seems the Prize Pack sweepstakes were only open to United States residents, which we did not initially realize, but which we quickly found out from some very unhappy Canadian followers. We asked HMH if they would be willing to provide a copy of the book for us to raffle off. They immediately agreed, and here we are.
So it's raffle time again, and this time the giveaway is open to anyone in North America. The prize pack includes a copy of the book PLASTIC: A Toxic Love Story, a Square Airtight Glass Container with a Stainless Steel Lid, a Round Airtight Stainless Steel Food Container, and smiles from Chantal and me - actually those are available to all :) :)
To enter, all you have to do is to tell us about an important item in your everyday life that you are unable to find in a plastic-free format. But be creative -- low-hanging fruit like "water bottle" and "coffee mug" are weak -- you can find those almost anywhere now. Think hard about something that you may have spent time looking for but just can't find in a non-plastic medium. Let us know by posting a comment below, and/or posting a comment in this item on the Life Without Plastic facebook page and indicating that you "Like" the page, or sending us an e-mail at info [at] lifewithoutplastic [dot] com.
The contest will be open for two weeks, so through Friday, May 20th. A winner will be chosen once the contest closes. Good luck!
