Sprint Wows Crowd at Earth Day 2011 Event

  • Apr 21, 2011

I just received this note from a client a few minutes ago–and she graciously allowed me to re-print on my blog word for word:

I recently ordered 2,945jar openers made from recycled tires. Sprint had Earth Day fairs at 20 locations across the country today (a day early).

I work at the Overland Park Headquarters campus – and our event was a phenomenal success! Our Environmental, Health & Safety group was one of 50 booths set up at the fair (mostly non-Sprint companies/organizations) and none of the other vendors was giving out a similar item.

EHS had allotted 800 of the quantity for the Overland Park event and distributed the other 2,100 across 19 other events. We gave away all 800 jar openers…and ran out of stock with 30 minutes still left to go.

People were excited. The jar openers made from recycled tires seemed to be very well received, with a lot of:

  • “Oh wow! From recycled tires? That’s great!”
  • “I can use this as a mouse pad too!”
  • “I needed a jar opener!”
  • “This will also remove cat hair from your clothing – like a lint brush.”
  • “I can use it on my dash to keep my phone from sliding around.”
  • “This will work as a trivet.”
  • “Oooooooh.”
  • “Aaaaaaah.”
