I’m entering a contest.
I feel uneasy about contests in general, especially about this one. The Pepsi Refresh project contest has had notorious issues in the past, and there are a number of concerns I have for the way it’s running, but it’s one I feel like we need to take a shot at.
Some of you know I’ve been working on a little web startup called unstash – a platform for peer-to-peer collaborative consumption – ie. it’ll help people share stuff. There’s lots more to it, and I’d love to share more in person – but just know it’s mission is to help combat excessive consumerism, create a more sustainable planet, while cultivating stronger local communities.
1. Vote & Vote daily at http://refresheverything.ca/unstash – Votes count daily & cumulative so we could use your votes every single day for the next while. Bookmark or homepage it if it helps.
2. Share this with your networks and ask them to vote as well. You could simply Twitter / Facebook update / Email your social circles – “Save money, Save the planet – Please vote for unstash on the pepsi challenge at http://refresheverything.ca/unstash
4. Consider becoming a part of our campaign team. Send me an email and we can equip you further to support the cause – plus your own unique insights would be invaluable.
I’ll update more as things progress, but voting now early in the contest is critical. Thanks for getting behind the cause, it means the world to us!
