“Stand For Less” seeks sustainability ideas

Posted by George J Janczyn on April 16, 2010

San Diego’s Stand For Less initiative is conducting a “How I Stand For Less” contest/survey which asks what you are doing to reduce your environmental footprint. All entries submitted will be placed in a random drawing to select a winner to receive a complimentary one-night stay at the La Valencia Hotel and dinner for two at George’s at the Cove in La Jolla.

The contest entry form says: “In 200 words or less, tell us what you do in your life to STAND FOR LESS. Do you take measures to save water, drive less or drive more efficiently? Do you use any alternative energy sources? Do you send less waste to the landfill than you did before? Do you reuse more items? Whatever you do, we want to know how you lighten your footprint and why it matters to you.”

The deadline for entries is April 24.

“Stand For Less” is an environmental initiative formed under the auspices of a collaborative known as San Diego Forward (itself made up of state and local government agencies along with non-profit and private enterprises) in order to encourage San Diegans to adopt a “conservation lifestyle.” For more information, please see the California Department of Conservation announcement about the initiative.
