Unless you’ve been living in a deep, dark cave… You may have noticed that there is a lot of cool stuff going on out there. So, we thought it was high-time we started rounding up some of our faves each Friday. Every month, we’ll be choosing a theme that fits with the Osprey lifestyle. Since we just wrapped our “Instead of driving, I…” contest, we’ve decided to pay homage to human-powered transportation for all of March. Welcome to the Osprey Friday Round-Up!
Last month, we asked our fans how they they got around — without driving — and we were flooded with awesome responses. So, without further ado, below, we’ve listed out the winners of the “Instead of driving, I…” contest. Congratulations to the winners! Watch out for a cool, new video on the topic coming soon. And to everyone out there who chooses to use their own power to get them from place to place: thank you for leading the way. Let’s keep it up!
At Osprey headquarters in Cortez, CO we strive to reduce our carbon footprint as best we can. One easy way is to drive less. In rural Southwest Colorado, we really only have two options: carpooling in winter months and riding our bikes in the spring, summer and fall seasons. We do have a couple hardy souls that ride during the dead of winter!
We’re curious about our fans who live in urban areas. You have access to a variety of commuting options instead of driving. Light rail, buses, trains, walking, skateboarding, scooters, rollerblades, swimming… all provide alternatives to get to work, to the gym, to the coffee shop, to band practice, to the library. All without driving.
Begin your statement with: “Instead of driving, I…” We’ll pick the top 10 most creative statements and send you a pack of your choice from the Momentum, Metron, Flap, 24/7 or Resource Series. Your statement may even appear (anonymously) in a cool new video we are producing called, you guessed it: “Instead of Driving I…”
Contest ends Monday February 28, 2011. In the event that a requested product is not in stock, Osprey Packs, Inc. reserves the right to substitute a product of equal or greater value. Winners will be picked and notified on March 1, 2011.
