Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

In celebration of its Environment Papers line, Neenah Paper, Alpharetta, Ga., USA, has launched an "Eco-Trip for Two" sweepstakes in which one winner will have the opportunity to help make the world a better place through an environmental adventure to the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica.

The Neenah "Eco-Trip for Two" sweepstakes runs to September 30. Until then, designers, printers, and anyone with a passion for the environment can enter to win by registering online. One winner will be randomly selected from all entries to receive the all-expenses-paid grand prize trip for two that includes airfare, ground transportation, six days and five nights of accommodations at an ecologically friendly resort, as well as a guided day-trip to the Neenah Reforestation Project, a project in partnership with the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin and Friends of the Osa. Neenah will offset the carbon footprint for the winner’s entire trip with carbon credits.

The trip to the Osa Peninsula was inspired by Neenah’s support of the region. In 2009, the company, with mills, finishing, and distribution in Wisconsin, partnered with the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin and Friends of the Osa to help reforest this conservation property in Costa Rica. One of the most biologically diverse regions in the world, the Osa Peninsula is widely acknowledged as a global conservation priority by organizations such as the Nature Conservancy and Conservation International. In addition, this forest provides a critical habitat for 54 species of Wisconsin’s migratory birds that winter in the Osa Peninsula. Eighteen of those species are conservation priorities, three are threatened, and one is endangered.
