Bridgestone Opens Public Voting for Fuel The Cause Contest


NASHVILLE, TN--April 15, 2014: Bridgestone Americas has announced the 12 finalists of its Fuel the Cause contest and has opened public voting to determine the winner. One of the 12 selected submissions will win a $25,000 gift from Bridgestone to be used toward the transformation of a green space project in one North American community – be it a park, school, playground, community garden or other neighborhood space.

Between now and April 30, the public is invited to visit Bridgestone's Fuel the Cause contest portal and cast their vote for one of the twelve finalists; the entry with the highest number of votes will be the grand-prize winner. Bridgestone will announce the contest winner in early May.

"As the world's largest tire and rubber company, we believe it is our responsibility to protect and preserve the environment, and we do this through our One Team, One Planet approach," said Erik Seidel, Vice President, Brand Management, Bridgestone Americas. "The Fuel the Cause contest reminds us that we are not alone in our commitment to a sustainable future, and together, we can make this vision a reality. Each one of our 12 finalists is outstanding and deserves to be recognized for their commitment to our planet."

Nominations for the Fuel the Cause contest opened on March 1st and closed on the 15th. To enter, consumers were asked to submit three pictures and a brief description of the project and how it would benefit from the Bridgestone transformation. To view the finalists' entries and cast a vote visit, Bridgestone Tire.

Bridgestone is conducting the contest as part of its annual Rethink Green campaign and promotion in April. Rethink Green highlights Bridgestone's Ecopia line of tires, as well as the company's breadth of Eco-Products. Ecopia is Bridgestone's most fuel-efficient line of tires that is engineered to save consumers money every time they drive. The Eco-Product designation is used to identify Bridgestone products that feature environmentally-conscious materials, such as low-aromatic oil and recycled materials, and also are designed to help improve vehicle fuel efficiency and reduce emissions.
