Last week, I introduced you to Cisco’s One Million Acts of Green and briefly told you about the Three to Green Sweepstakes. It’s actually a pretty awesome deal.
If you sign up and pledge to just 3 acts of green, you will be entered to win a $5000 shopping spree at BuyGreen.com. The great thing about BuyGreen is that all of the products for sale on their site already have been vetted as green. You can buy everything from eco-friendly furniture to recycled earrings, organic clothing and safer cleaning supplies all in one place. The decorator in me loves the entire “home” cateogory, but a $500o windfall would be a big boost for anyone trying to make their lifestyles greener.
A word of warning though: As tempting as it would be to spend $5000 all at once on whatever you like, a better approach would be to use it on things you need over time. Giving in to over-consumption isn’t a very green thing to do, no matter the source of the spending money.
You can enter once or many times. For every additional three acts of green you do, you’ll earn another entry. If that’s not incentive to participate in One Million Acts of Green, I don’t know what is! And look at it this way: Even if you don’t win, by the time you’re through pledging and completing acts, you will have made a change (or many) in your lifestyle that can only serve to make this planet a better place.
