Vote for Local Ecopreneur

Some of you out there may know about Recycline, a cool Boston-area business making personal care and consumer products from Stonyfield Farm yogurt cups (and other materials). They are currently a Forbes Boost Your Business Contest second round competitor. There's nothing better than supporting a local business working to make a positive environmental and social impact. I use their toothbrush, but I must admit that the Preserve razor was not up to the high performance standards of the Gillette Mach3. Hmmm? Is that a partnership opportunity?

The following is an excerpt from their latest newsletter:
Recycline has just been given a great opportunity to reach more people with our
environment-friendly products. We've been named one of 20 semifinalists (out of
1,000) in the Forbes.com Boost Your Business competition. First prize is $100,000 which would go a long way to helping us spread our message—using Earth's resources more efficiently and giving consumers better choices for the everyday products we all use.

Here's your chance to help others discover Preserve: please click here to cast your vote forward this message to your friends, family, and, well, anyone you know. The
$100,000 prize will allow us to launch our first-ever mainstream marketing campaign and enable us to introduce Preserve products far and wide.

Thanks for your support—and for spreading the word to your family and friends!

For the Earth,
Eric Hudson and the Recycline Team
Check 'em out, vote for them, and pass it along.
