Support GLC in Three Eco Inspired Contests

Something is in the air, because we came across three exciting green-themed contests to enter that are going simultaneously and involve voting.  We’d appreciate your vote in these contests.  Given the complexity of entering some of the contests, I thought it might be helpful to outline the steps below.

Given the other amazing creations in the jewelry category, I’d be thrilled just to make it to the final round.  Each entry features a description of how it is made including either a video or before, during and after photos.

Top 25 Eco-Friend Moms by Circle of Moms

This is by far the easiest contest to enter, no sign ups, no limit to the number of entries you can vote for and best of all this is a great list of EcoMom Blogs out there.  Many of our friends and fellow green mom bloggers are on the list like Practically Green, Groovy Green Livin’, and Alexandra Zissu to name just a few.  We’ve been voting for them too.  The voting runs through April 17, 2011.

You can find us about 22nd on the list currently to vote.

We appreciate your support and encouragement through these contests, your comments on our blog and messages on facebook.

Happy Green Voting!
Jon

p.s. The really important green voting will come election time, this is all just for fun compared to that.

    1. Hi! I’m in the ecomom contest too. I voted for you- will you vote for me? https://apps.facebook.com/ecomomcontest/contests/107279/voteable_entries/19858159?ogn=facebook&order=recency

      How did you know you were 12th place? I’ve been wondering…..

      Thanks!

    2. I voted for you… If click on “Vote now”, then on the left hand column of “most votes” click on “see all entries” we believe that it sorts it in the order of most votes. Good luck!
