The House of Marley Promotes Earth Week With Eco-Friendly Facebook Contest

#EarthDayGiveaway Contest Combines Green Tips With a Chance to Win Marley Headphones

The House of Marley recently launched an interactive Earth Week contest for fans of its Facebook page, combining thoughtful green tips with its critically acclaimed line of Earth-friendly headphones.

All this week, #EarthDayGiveaway will provide fans of the House of Marley Facebook page with different tips for achieving a more Earth-conscious lifestyle. Within the text of these tips will be several highlighted letters for fans to collect over the course of Earth Week. On Sunday, April 22 — Earth Day — fans will have to use these letters to complete a word jumble. The first person to correctly solve the jumble and submit their answer will win a prize courtesy of The House of Marley.

Here’s the twist: the Marley Headphones prize depends entirely on how many Facebook ‘shares’ the #EarthDayGiveaway contest image receives. If the contest receives 250 shares, the prize will be a pair of Smile Jamaica in-ear headphones. For 1,000 shares, the prize will be a pair of Positive Vibration on-ear headphones. 2,500 will up the ante to a pair of their popular Stir It Up on-ear headphones. And finally, if the contest hits 4,000 shares, the lucky winner will take home the brand new Marley Bag of Rhythm portable iPod dock and speaker system.

Each House of Marley product is built with three principles in mind: superior quality, Earth-friendly, and cause-mindedness. Committing its brand to maintaining the vision and teachings of legendary musician, Bob Marley, the House of Marley follows these principles to not only create lasting products, but also make a positive impact on the world. To achieve this, the brand combines top-of-the-line craftsmanship with natural, sustainably-sourced materials, such as FSC-certified wood, organic cotton and recyclable aluminum. In addition to limiting the impact its products have on the environment, the House of Marley also contributes a portion of its sales to support the Marley family charity, 1Love.

Day 2: Spreading the Word Like Wildfire

The love continues at CES and it shows no sign of slowing doing. For the Marley family it was a day full of interviews, autographs and sharing the sound of Marley gear with fans. It’s been another day full of buzz. From Twitter to national broadcast television, the House of Marley has been banging the gong for the world to hear.

In addition to showing off our amazing new line of headphones, we’ve been selling yarn bracelets to help raise money for 1Love.org. So far we’ve raised $1,500 that will go to a 1Love.org charity.
