Anoka County residents who take the pledge to walk or bike on Earth Day, Thursday, April 22, will receive a free Earth Day goodie bag with several sustainable items from Anoka County Commute Solutions, and they will have the chance to compete in three different contests. To receive the goodie bag, all participants have to do is take the pledge to bike or walk on April 22.
Residents can visit anokacounty.us/3881/Earth-Day to register for these Earth Day opportunities. Upon registration, participants will receive a confirmation email with a description of the three different contests. Winners of these contests can receive one of four AreoGardens, an eco-friendly spa package, a rain barrel, or one of five $50 gift cards to a local, sustainable restaurant.
Participants can also take a photo of themselves walking or biking and post it on their social media profile with the hashtag #AnokaCountyEarthDay for a chance to win one of ten $100 gift certificates to local retailers. Residents who have their social media accounts set to private can still participate by taking a screenshot of their posts and emailing them to email@example.com or they can send the screenshots to the messaging platforms on the Commute Solutions social media sites. Participants must register for Earth Day to qualify for the contests. All contests open Monday, April 19, and end Friday, April 23.
