Congratulations to the Winners of our February Sleuth Challenge!
The Winners: Congratulations to the February Impact Sleuth Challenge Winners who each won a $20 Gift Card to Gander Mountain Stores: Thomas McKeef of Rutherford, NJ; Jeremy Knoll of Kansas City, MO; Mark Miller of Santa Fe, NM; Elisabeth Rabito of Littleton, CO; and Daniel Nash of Kansas City, MO. Congrats and Enjoy!
This Month's Challenge: Still drinking water out of plastic bottles? Even if you are staying hydrated with home-filtered water in a reusable bottle, switching from plastic to a more inert material (like stainless steel) is an inexpensive, healthier option. According to this Ideal Bite Tip, Americans use 4 million plastic bottles every hour; out of every 4, how many of these are actually recycled?
The Prize: Need a new water bottle, some hiking boots, perhaps a tent? Grab some of your favorite camping, fishing, boating or hunting accessories or apparel with a gift card to Gander Mountain (retail value $20). Many thanks to Gander Mountain for sponsoring this month's challenge and prize!
The Answer: Only one out of every four plastic bottles used by American are actually recycled, the rest end up in landfills, on roadsides and in waterways.
Thanks to everyone who participated- look for a new Sleuth Challenge next month!
