BookRenter is proud to announce the winners of its April Hug a Tree contest. Centered around the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, the contest asked Facebook users to upload a picture of their best tree hug. The most creative pictures with the most user votes were deemed the winners.
Our grand prize, a $500 REI gift card, National Parks Pass, and collapsible water bottle, was awarded to Alyssa Nicole from Alabama. The Shelton State Community College student was super excited to win and said she’d share her prize with family and friends and use her pass to visit Yellowstone.
We also gave away two runner-up prizes, which went to Samantha Chapman and Sarah Graser. Both ladies were psyched to have won a Timbuk2 bag, collapsable H2O bottle, lunch set, and $25 Whole Foods gift card. Sarah, who earlier won a Timbuk2 bag as a daily prize, told us she was excited to get another one: “I have been using my tote every day since it showed up in the mail!”
The pictures of all three of our winners are below. Thanks to them and all our participants’ pictures, we got to send lots of (tree) hugs Mother Nature’s way for this year’s momentous Earth Day.
As for all the other days in the year, we want to remind our customers that we believe in being green 24/7. Check out the image above and our website to see how we keep the process of renting textbooks green throughout the year.
