Sun Chips Giveaway: Green Effect Contest

Time for a little bragging! Recently, I joined Weight Watchers Online and I have been trying REALLY hard to lose some weight. Guess what? I am down 6 pounds!!! Considering I only have 12 to lose, I am half-way there! Whoo hoo!

I have been diligently following the Points system at Weight Watchers, but one of my weaknesses is potato chips. As I was contemplating which sandwich to purchase at Subway, I was introduced to Sun Chips.  These chips are 30% less fat than the regular potato chip, 18 grams of whole grain per serving and they are tasty, too!


Besides the obvious health benefits, there is another reason to love Sun Chips!  Right now, Sun Chips has partnered with National Geographic to launch the “Green Effect Contest” – a national intiative where consumers can submit their ideas on how to make their communities green for the chance to win $20,000 to make that green dream a reality. Hurry!  Your ideas need to be entered by June 8th!

Check out this video to see what steps Sun Chips is taking for a “greener” tomorrow!

To launch the Green Effect Contest, you can win your very own SunChips Prize Pack including TWO full size bags of Sun Chips and an Eco-Friendly tote bag (shown below)!
