This Earth Month, Seventh Generation Empowers You to Make a Difference With a Live Like The Lorax Sweepstakes

Win a Green Home Makeover, Green School Library or Seventh Generation Green Cleaning Starter Kit

BURLINGTON, VT--(Marketwire - Apr 20, 2012) - This Earth Month, the leading brand of green and eco-friendly household and personal care products, Seventh Generation, is inspiring people across the country to make a difference in their own communities through the Live Like The Lorax Sweepstakes.

The sweepstakes, hosted on Seventh Generation's Facebook page, asks users to "like" the Seventh Generation page and provide their contact information in order to be entered to win the Green Your Town Makeover prize package. The prize package includes:

  • $5,000 for a Green Home Makeover from
  • $5,000 for a Green School Library in their community
  • 500 Seventh Generation Green Cleaning Starter Kits for their neighbors

The sweepstakes also consists of a weekly prize, where 500 winners will win Green Home Starter Kits, including Seventh Generation's eco-friendly cleaning products.

The Lorax speaks for the trees and Seventh Generation acts for them and wants to empower others to do the same. If every household in the U.S. replaced just one 12-pack of 300-sheet virgin fiber bathroom tissue with Seventh Generation's 100% recycled bathroom tissue, we could save 1,900,000 trees.

"The Lorax was created to inspire and at Seventh Generation, we're here to help turn that inspiration into reality," says Chris Miller, director of Corporate Consciousness at Seventh Generation. "Not everyone has the resources to take on a major green initiative within their community, so it is our hope that this promotion is a start in providing individuals with the inspiration and tools they need to do so -- we hope it will help people understand that one small change done by many can make a big difference."

The Green Your Town Sweepstakes runs through on July 31, 2012.
