Minnie Mielie Bag

There’s a zip at the top to keep things secure and it’s perfect for carrying your an ipod, blackberry, Nintendo DS, pens and pencils, make-up, jewellery, mobile phones, love letters and toothbrushes I’m told.

Win With The Super Cars Shout Out Competition

What if you could be rewarded by thanking other people who, by driving less polluting cars, are doing a small part to help the environment? Well, with the Super Cars Shout Out Competition from PlanetThoughts.org you can.

This contest allows you to place a simple, colourful flier on high mileage cars that you encounter, showing the vehicle owner that she or he has done something worthy. Optionally you can re-use a copy of the flier on multiple vehicles to avoid paper waste, but then the car owner never knows that he/she was recognized, so we don’t recommend that. Printing fliers on recycled paper with high post-consumer content is recommended.

Of course, we would still prefer it if everyone could all walk, bicycle, car pool and car share, or use mass transit rather than driving individually-owned vehicles. Using more efficient cars simply makes this habit or need less damaging to our environment by reducing global warming gases, and saving fuel as well. Hopefully these cars are part of a transition to a better set of solutions.

PlanetThoughts Super Cars Flyer

The prize for this competition is at least $500 guaranteed. So if you are not in it for the fun and the mission, there is another reason to join in. And to make this fun for the wise car buyers, they will give $50 per month to one randomly selected car owner who contacts them that month and who has a valid photo of their of car uploaded on our site by any other entrant. Note: no individual or their family can win more than one secondary prize (the $50), but such winners are still eligible for the grand prize.

How to enter
1. Download and print one or more of the cool looking fliers (recycled paper obviously prefered and possibly two per page).
2. Find a 40+ mpg US (16.74 kmpl) car from the list.
3. Place the flier under the windshield wiper.
4. Use a digital camera or good cell phone to photograph it (and either take the flier with you to reuse or leave it for the car owner).
5. Upload the image(s) to the PlanetThoughts.org website.
6. Repeat 🙂

There are, of course, some simple rules to stop people rigging the competition, but nothing difficult.

It really is a great actionable idea that can win you some cash, so take a look.

Would You Like To Stay At An Eco-Friendly Hotel In Jamaica?

Eco-friendly accommodation site, ecobookers, is currently offering the chance to win a one-week stay at an eco-friendly hotel in Jamaica. For a chance to win, simply register your details at http://ecobookers.com/competition.php by 9th January 2008. You will be entered into the competition and registered to receive their regular news and exclusive offers by email.

The winner will receive a free 7-night stay at the eco-chic Hotel Mocking Bird Hill, a romantic, peaceful and comfortable hideaway, nestled between the majesty of the Blue Mountains and the Caribbean Sea in Jamaica. The ten select accommodations are lovingly decorated with hand crafted bamboo furniture, locally printed fabrics and original art. Guests are greeted with warm hospitality and can discover creative Caribbean cuisine in the hotel’s highly acclaimed restaurant, Mille Fleurs, which offers terrace dining with spectacular views overlooking the harbour of Port Antonio.

However there is a catch. Whilst the prize is for two people in a double room, it does not include flights or transfers. Depending on how much you pay for a holiday, this could be costly for you, however not having to pay accommodation on a holiday is a great prize.

Also, I know many of you are not keen on unnecessary air travel, so I suppose it depends on whether you were planning on going abroad on holiday anyway, or depends on your feelings of holiday air travel. Of course, if you live in Jamaica then good luck too!
