An Earth Day giveaway brought to you by Walt Disney Pictures’ newest film label, Disneynature, and the first movie to be released under this banner, Earth.
Okay, so you know me, I’ve been lobbying to get Disney to adopt green cleaning methods at its hotels, and it seems a little odd for me to be hosting this particular giveaway. But I have to say I’m excited about Earth, scheduled for release on Earth Day, April 22, 2009. This first film in the Disneynature series, Earth, is narrated by James Earl Jones (always a fave) and tells the remarkable story of three animal families and their amazing journey across our planet. Directors Alastair Fothergill and Mark Linfield, the acclaimed creative team behind the Emmy Award-winning “Planet Earth” series combine forces again to bring this epic adventure to the big screen. I’m looking forward to seeing it, having heard good things already.
To celebrate the theatrical release of the film, Disneynature will be planting a tree in the highly endangered Brazilian Atlantic Rain Forest in honor of every person who sees the film opening week. Another good thing, to use Martha Stewart’s favorite line.
Consistent with that, I’ve got a goodie bag of Earth branded items to giveaway: a re-usable canvas tote, a re-usable grocery bag, a biodegradable re-usable tumbler, a medium size fleece blanket and a tree seedling. The items will be shipped directly from Disney.
To win: just leave a comment on this post with one idea to celebrate Earth Day all year long. Winner will be selected randomly from those leaving comments on the post. Contest runs through April 23, 2009 at 11:59 p.m. Winner will be announced on April 24, 2009.
