If you’re looking to score some extra cash for holiday shopping, why not try reminding friends to recycle their e-waste?
In an effort to raise awareness for keeping old electronics out of landfills, Planet Green Recycle is running a sweepstakes for anyone to enter and win a $350 Amazon gift card and a $50 Planet Green gift card just in time for the holiday season. When you sign up, you’ll automatically be entered in the sweepstakes.
The Planet Green recycling program, which accepts inkjet cartridges and small electronics like cellphones, iPods, tablets and eBook readers, is run from a unique URL — allowing participants to directly track their impact.
For every box of 20 accepted items each member sends in, Planet Green offers payouts to their charity of choice, including schools, nonprofits, sports teams and Scouts troops.
During the run of the sweepstakes, any current member — or anyone who signs up before Nov. 30 — can share the charitable e-waste recycling solution with friends and supporters. For every friend you refer to the sweepstakes page, you’ll be entered to win $500 for your chosen charity.
The member (which can be an individual, business or community group) with the most unique entries will score the donation.
Ready to get started? Head to the sweepstakes page to sign up for the holiday gift cards. After you sign up, share the opportunity on Facebook and Twitter to gather enough entries to win the $500 charitable donation.
The sweepstakes ends on Nov. 30, so act quickly for your chance to win!
