CONTESTS & SWEEPSTAKES
- Earthbound Farm has just launched acontest seeking quotes from children for the inside of its clamshell salad labels. Kids are encouraged to submit quotes thanking those who purchase organic for helping protect the future.
For each child’s quote that is chosen, they have the opportunity to win a $500 US Savings Bond for their future education. In addition, a $500 donation in their name will be given to their choice of certain dedicated nonprofit environmental organizations. Winning quotes will appear on the back of new and improved salad labels and on the Earthbound Farm website!
Four winners will be selected in July and then add a new winner every month through the end of 2009!
