Earth Day giveaway: Five Powered Green Energy Seals

by EcoStreet on April 22, 2010

in Competitions, Sustainable Lifestyle

It’s Earth Day today, and I’m delighted to be giving away five Energy Seals, worth $16 each, from the very generous Powered Green to 5 of our US readers.

An Energy Seal is a sticker made from recycled aluminium that represents a carbon offset for a computer. Each Energy Seal symbolizes that renewable energy sources have produced an equal amount of energy used by a single computer over the course of its lifetime. The Energy Seal is then placed on the outside of a computer to show support for clean energy.

Powered Green is an environmental start-up based in Madison, WI, founded by two recent UW – Madison graduates. Their efforts support the development of new wind projects across the country through the sale of Powered Green gear. Each product stands as a way to generate awareness and support for renewable energy on an individual basis. Their efforts in less than a year have already stopped over 1,000 tons of CO2 from reaching the atmosphere.

To stand a chance to win one of these Energy Seal stickers for your computer, please leave a comment here about your Earth Day plans. Five comments will be chosen at random to each receive a free Powered Green Energy Seal, and the winners will be announced here on Sunday 2nd May 2010. Please note that this giveaway is only open to readers with a US mailing address.

And the winners are…

Kristi, Tiffany Pettey, Miranda johnson, Nick and Chrystal. Congratulations, you’ll soon be working/playing on a computer with a carbon offset! Winners, please reply to my email requesting your mailing address.

UK readers: keep a lookout for a new sponsor giveaway tomorrow, just for you!

My Earth Day plans are not too extravagant since I am working and have a pretty busy evening, but I did contribute by writing a post on my company blog on ways businesses can help the environment.

My goal is to make my manufacturing company that my family runs as green as we possibly can. Those are my plans for earth day. So far we are doing great, by changing out our toilets plunging systems to save on water, recycling for paper and all other products, recycling any metals we can to schools nearby and many many more. Its great!

Having read the very good ‘Urban Green File’ magazine and its article on the benefits of various solar heating systems and heat pumps, I am going to be designing the green refurb of my new house in Newlands! Oh, and take the kids to the Aquarium…

I am busy approaching company’s to see whether they will sponsor small items to help turn my neighbourhood green. If not items, to provide coupons. Once I have company buy in I’m going to approach the HOA.
In addition I have been pushing the company I work for to offset some of their energy costs by doing research into alternative energies. It looks like we’re going solar powered.

I’m hoping to find a local opportunity to volunteer and help with Earth Day promotion, recycling, etc.

I used to live in a state where aluminum soda cans qualified for a 10 cent deposit. So everyone returned their cans to the store for recycling, mostly just to get the money, but achieved the more noble end in assuring the cans were recycled. Now I live in a state where there is no deposit on cans, so many people just throw them away. I try to operate as if nothing has changed and cans are just as valuable monetarily here in NC as they were in MI. This ensures that I will continue to do my part in recycling the easily reusable aluminum.
