Our favorite month is here! We are so excited to announce this year’s Earth Day contest! In addition to FREE Earth Straws, we will be holding a contest and you will have the chance to win a gift basket of PRIZES!
You probably know by now that 500 million straws are used and discarded every day in the United States alone. That’s 175 Billion a year filtering into landfills and littering our waterways and oceans *TheLastPlasticStraw.org Most of these straws are used for only a couple minutes of enjoyment and then tossed in the trash.
All around the world individuals, companies, non-profits and even governments are working to ban single use straws! We are all chipping away at this problem from every angle and it is working!
This year we were thinking of how helpful it would be to have more multi-media (videos and graphics) to share with information about single-use plastic straws. SO, we will be hosting a month long contest, collecting submissions of informational videos and or graphics. We will choose 1 Grand Prize winner and 2 Runner-Ups.
See list of prizes below.
We will also feature these winning submissions along with others that inspire us on our website, social media and newsletter campaigns. Please join us in helping spread the word about the negative impacts of plastic straws and how we can change our habits!
2 Entry Options:
- 1 Minute YouTube Video OR
- 1 Informational Graphic (Graphic must be at least 800x800 pixels)

1. Be ORIGINAL work
