Grab A Towel & Eat Local Design Contest Sponsored by PeopleTowels and Whole Foods Market Florida Stores
Date:3/6/2013

(PRWEB) March 06, 2013

PeopleTowels, the eco-friendly, on-the-go alternative to disposable paper towels, has joined forces with Whole Foods Market Florida stores, leaders in the quality food business, to host an Earth Day design contest. “We hope this contest will help to raise awareness of local agriculture and the importance of choosing local farms,” comments Karen Doyle, Regional Green Mission Specialist for Whole Foods Market stores in Florida. Learn more about these benefits and Whole Foods Market’s local produce.

“In addition to raising awareness of the benefits of eating local, we believe the design contest will inspire individuals to kick the paper towel habit,” states PeopleTowels Co-Founder, Mary Wallace. The average person consumes 3,000 single-use paper towels (equivalent to 8 large garbage bags) outside the home, annually. If just one in four adults in the United States switched to PeopleTowels, they would save enough trees to cover the state of Alaska, reduce enough landfill waste to fill Fenway Park four times, conserve enough water to fill 2,000 Olympic size swimming pools and cut CO2 emissions equivalent to removing 815,000 cars from the roads.

Two contest winners will be selected: The First Choice winner will receive $1000 and the Runner Up winner will receive $250. The First Choice winning design will be imprinted on PeopleTowels to be given away on Earth Day in Whole Foods Market Florida stores and sold online at http://www.peopletowels.com.

Submit your designs online from March 1 - 17, 2013. A panel of judges will select the winning designs to be announced on March 20, 2013. The winning PeopleTowels will be available for purchase online in time for Earth Day on April 22, 2013.
