I love Oprah Magazine. Really, there is no other publication that I read cover-to-cover, on a regular basis. In the April issue, I noticed an advertisement by eBay for “30 Days of Green.” Not only is the promotion a great way to go green, you can also win a $5,000 shopping experience at www.eBay.com/greenteam.
Seriously. You should go there now. Its not just about the chance to win. No… that wouldn’t be too green (unless you are talking the color of money). But when you visit the site, you can get lots of ideas for eco-friendly shopping. Why not sign up now?
While most of us know eBay as the famous online auction site, did you consider that you are actually recycling when you buy and sell previously used goods? eBay has also put together a fabulous “Green Team” site that includes water saving tips, driving smart, and stories about Hollywood living green.
Here’s a short list:
- learn how to reduce your carbon footprint
- find energy-saving products
- purchase items made from recycled or sustainable materials
- donate previously-owned products, to reduce-reuse-recycle
- learn many other energy-saving tips to use on a daily basis
Oprah Magazine is not the only publication promoting 30 Days of Green (nor, is PeachyGreen, I’m sure!)
Hearst has partnered with eBay to protect the environment through its other magazines, too, including Good Housekeeping, Redbook, Seventeen, Country Living, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, SmartMoney, Veranda, The Daily Green, Harper’s Bazaar, Town&Country, Marie Claire, House Beautiful, and Popular Mechanics.
The eBay green team is comprised of over 1000 employees. Those that sign up for 30 days of green also join the effort in adding together small “living green” efforts for a big difference.
I just signed up!
Will you join me?
