Video Contest Top Prize $1,500

Got a minute? That’s all it takes, and it could be worth a prize of up to $1,500 in a video contest going on now through Sept. 5.

Sponsored by a coalition of recycling partners known as “A Bag’s Life,” the contest invites Floridians to break out their camcorders and create an up-to-one-minute video promoting the recycling and or reuse of free plastic shopping bags like those found in grocery and retail stores.

Entries can be submitted at and are being accepted in two categories – with top-prize, second and third place winners in each.

One category is for videos showing the myriad ways plastic bags can be reused (some ideas: rain hat, lunch bag, wet bathing suit tote, suitcase shampoo wrapper, shoe saver, cast protector, poop picker-upper…). The other is for videos that depict second-life uses for recycled plastic bags (more ideas: low-maintenance fencing, decking, building and construction products and of course, new bags).
