Thank you to everybody for these fantastic ideas. I *knew* this would be a
great place to ask!

I'm going to the next step now, which is to present these ideas to our
group.
I'll keep you posted on how it goes.

Thanks again!
Gloria

There are all kinds of things that fit with the paperless motif. What
about tin water bottles, a litterless lunch kit, bicycle swag? Check
out a Whole Foods (or is it Whole Earth, I'm from Canada - not quite
sure which) store for interesting ideas. Or look at anyplace that
specializes in earth friendly products.

"GoPaperless" launch

Hello,
My company's about to roll out our "Go Paperless" option (we're a bank),
which is going to save lots 'o trees and a lot of money.
I'm currently working on the internal email marketing campaign, and to
encourage enrollment, we decided to have a contest. This is last-minute,
of course.

So now I've got 24 hours to come up with a green-themed prize for the
Relationship Manager who signs up the most clients.
There's very little budget; we're OK with spending up to/around $100 for
a first prize.
We could offer 2nd, 3rd prizes if they're inexpensive, or maybe do a
"first 30 people to sign up get a free bowl of soup" approach.

Front runners:
Fabric grocery bags, but not necessarily for first prize.

Already shot down:
Coffee mugs, gift cards, dinner for 2, donations to plant-a-tree
charity.
(I know. For a bank, we're an awful bunch of scrooges.)

Does anyone have any experience with this? Any ideas would be greatly
appreciated!

Thanks & regards,
Gloria
