As you might already know, I have pretty strong opinions on things and one of them is the environment. Now, I’m not fanatical about anything, just opinionated. Which might make me a hypocrite, but I don’t like taking anything to the extreme. We recycle at home, I won’t buy bottled water in restaurants because that’s just wasteful and I try to be conscious of our natural resources. This is part of the reason why I like BiOH, a company that lowers the petroleum base in the cushion fill for soft furnishings. Ideally we would go back to the old way of making sofas with hard wood bases that last literally forever and down or horse hair stuffing. However, the cost of such a thing makes it prohibitive. So we have BiOH.
Oh – my point. They are having a contest. A really neat one open to people worldwide. Yeah that’s right – worldwide.
Here’s the info:
For the next two weeks, short video clips of 13 different furniture manufacturers will show you pieces from their furniture collections that are eco friendly. The purpose of the contest is to showcase manufacturers who have made a commitment to using sustainably sourced materials.
The contest is easy. The person, each day that the contest runs, who makes the most insightful, helpful or educational tip of the day either on the blog or on the video itself, will win a 100 Visa gift card. The contest starts today and runs through July 26th. The contest is open to people from all countries and all of the details and the first video are on Bio‘s site right now.
And for the record – no, this isn’t a paid post. I just thought it was insanely neat that this contest is open worldwide and wanted to tell people about it.
