We don’t normally post about this kind of stuff on YD, being a yoga site and all, but it has come to our attention that Tropicana, teamed up with Cool Earth, has launched a forward-thinking promotion along with their retro 50′s style carton redesign. Evidently they’re offering to save 100 square feet of rainforest (in Peru we think) for every orange juice you buy/code you redeem. The problem is that in order to do so they require you to register an account and submit all your personal info at tropicanarainforest.com (name, address, etc) before punching in the 11-digit code from your OJ carton. Kinda not cool. What do they need our address and email for? Annoying e-marketing?
We happened to have a Tropicana OJ in the fridge, from which we noticed the “promotion,” and decided to give it a try, with made up information, naturally. And we’re happy to report Bob Booya at 45 Booya Street in Booyaville, IN has saved 100 sq feet of rainforest! If it worked like we think it did go to your local supermarket, take down all the codes and spend a few minutes punching in some of your favorite aliases at the tropicanarainforest.com site.
Also, we found at Care2.com they will enter the codes for you if you want…here’s the link
And that concludes our PSA for the week
