Vienna, VA, Oct. 24, 2011– The business of eco trailblazer Greenloons is to help families source the green vacation of their dreams – and then to help assure a hassle-free journey by suggesting they travel light but with what they need to help stay in touch with folks back home.
To this end, Greenloons is running an online contest with a new Kindle Fire for the winning entry. The top five submissions that receive the highest number of Facebook "Like" votes by Nov. 5, 2011 will then be judged by a panel of eco-conscious family vacation planners to determine the winner. The winner will be notified on Dec. 5, 2011.
The contest open to age 18 and up began on Oct. 15, 2011. Entrants are asked to pen a short story about a recent eco-travel experience or provide a list of eco-travel tips they would suggest to other green travelers. The various stories and tips must be a minimum of 75 words and written in English. More details are outlined in the Official Rules: http://www.greenloons.com/official-rules.html.
"The growing Greenloons community on Facebook already enjoys sharing their stories and green travel tips. This is just a way to increase their engagement and social interaction while gaining some great insights for all who visit and participate," said Irene Lane, Greenloons founder.
