Friday, September 12
Let me be the first to say that I hate the commercially driven need to begin celebrating every holiday six months early. It seriously drives me insane when I hear "Jingle Bells" on the store speakers while I try to plan for Halloween (in August, of course.)
But me and my fragile mental state are neither here nor there. But what does matter is that while I might tweak out because of seeing a Christmas tree display next to the Halloween costumes, I'm not above doing my part in the spirit of the holidays.
Remember my Primo water bottles review here? In case you're new, the short story is that the bottles are made from plants grown in the United States and are totally renewable.
Genius, I know.
Well, I had a genius moment of my own when I approached Primo reps about offering a berrie kickin' contest for one winner to walk with ten cases (yeah, you read that right...TEN CASES) of Primo water bottles to be used to pass out on Halloween!
Think about it: the childhood obesity epidemic is still a major factor, and every little thing we can do as parents and adults setting healthier examples is something we need to try to embrace. And what could be better than water to quench the thirst of the trick-or-treaters and their parents with eco-friendly bottled water? Just do me a favor if you win and ask that they recycle their Primo bottles, okay?
To be considered for the random drawing, leave me a comment telling me why you'd like to offer a healthier Halloween for the kids in your neighborhood, and of course, in your family.
