Once you make a conscious effort to live a greener lifestyle, you’ll notice a mental shift. Things that once would’ve gone in the trash suddenly get a second look, and you’ll try to figure out how to reuse them, rather than just throw them away — even if they were going into the recycling bin.
That is the idea behind Walmart Green’s latest giveaway, the Recycle Revamp Pinterest contest.
How does it work? Simple! All you have to do is create a new pinboard called “Walmart Green Earth Month: Recycle Revamp”. Then repin Walmart Green’s Recycle Revamp contest pin, which links back to the Walmart Green Room. Next, pin a photo of your upcycled project. It can be anything you want, as long as you have created something new from of old items. For example, you can use glass bottles to make a centerpiece for your table like I did last spring, cover shoeboxes with fancy paper, or use all those loose hairpins or old t-shirts to make some funky jewelry. In your pin’s caption, be sure to include the #WalmartGreen hashtag and explain how you reused something old to make something new.
Finally, to make sure your project isn’t missed, send a link of your board to firstname.lastname@example.org .
The top 10 pinboards will come to a group of us Walmart Moms, and we’ll choose the top three projects! The third place winner will receive a $100 Walmart gift card, second place a $250 gift card, and the grand prize winner will receive a $500 Walmart gift card! You can enter the contest through April 30, and the winner will be announced May 6!
