The Top 10 Things a Consumer can do to Help the Environment Scholarship Essay Contest

PlushBeds is North America’s largest importer of ARPICO organic latex, used in the production of our handmade and customized, shipped to you factory-direct Botanical Bliss 100% natural latex mattress. As a natural mattress manufacturer, we wholeheartedly adopt and support the mindset of greener living. As well, we greatly value education and awareness. As a part of our green living initiatives, we sponsor a once-yearly Fall Semester green-related scholarship essay contest, in which PlushBeds contributes a one-time monetary award of $1,000 to be applied towards the winning student’s university or college tuition. Qualified students are those who are or will be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate green degree program in Fall 2019 at any accredited American college, university, or trade school.
For the year 2019, our designated topic and title for green scholarship essay submissions is “The Top 10 Things a Consumer can do to Help the Environment”. The essay should be no less than 1,000 words, and may be longer to adequately cover the necessary material.

Questions That Should be Considered When Writing Your Essay

Students should introduce the topic by exploring briefly some of the ecological problems and their effects that we face today as a society due to negative consumer practices, and then proceed with the bulk of the essay focusing on discussing 10 suitable and actionable items that when undertaken by consumers, can make a substantial difference in the cleanliness and health of our ecosystem.
Points will be awarded for originality and creativity, but also practicality (suggestions that are less likely to be acted upon are not as useful), so be imaginative and use your creative problem-solving skills, while pondering how easily the steps you are suggesting will be in actual adoption. Careful attention to this instruction will aid the student in setting his or her essay apart from the rest.
