Maybe you’ve been reading Viator’s Earth Day page, or our new Go Carbon Neutral page. Maybe you’re feeling inspired to make a difference, to minimize your impact and offset your carbon footprint wherever and however you can.
That’s great and all, but maybe we also hear you asking… “that’s all very worthy, Viator. But what’s in it FOR ME?”
Fair enough. We know it’s hard to be worthy all the time. So we’ve created an extra incentive to whet your earth-loving appetite. We call it a contest. You may win things. And everybody goes home happy, including Planet Earth.
Here’s how it works: You simply write a reply of 50 words or less to the question below. Use our “comments” feature to submit your reply. The deadline is April 30, 2007. We’ll pick 3 winners and post the best replies here on the Viator Blog.
The prizes: There’s some cool stuff, including 100,000 miles worth of carbon credits to help you offset the impact of your travels in 2007. We’re also offering gift certificates on Viator.com, which you can use to book an eco tour or a hike or a bike ride or public transit pass, you get the idea. For complete details see below.
The question: Read the question below. Think about it. Then write no more than 50 words that make us laugh, make us cry, make us understand why Global Warming is, or isn’t, an imminent disaster. The deadline for submissions is April 30, 2007. The Viator Team will pick 3 entries that makes us laugh and/or cry about the issue of global warming. That’s it. So start writing!
Imminent disaster or “my mountainside property will soon be ocean front… sweet!”?
Tell us what you think about that question and you could win the grand prize: a US$200 Viator gift certificate plus an offset from Viator for 100,000 air miles worth of carbon emissions with CarbonFund.org (just so you won’t feel guilty about your trip). First runner up will receive a US$100 Viator gift certificate. The second runner up gets a US$50 Viator gift certificate.
To submit your entry, leave a reply below to this blog post. The deadline is April 30, 2007. Good luck!
