Seventh Generation is offering you a chance to get rid of the toxic wasteland under your friend’s sink and a chance to win a little something for yourself – all while possibly embarrassing your friend at the same time.

Seventh Generation is having an “Under the Sink Makeover Contest.” You can nominate a friend – not yourself or a family member – for an under sink makeover.

Here’s how it works. You register yourself and your friend’s name. Then you write an essay (250 words or less) that explains why you think your friend needs the makeover. And, just to make your friend love you even more, Seventh Generation wants you to try to get a picture of under your friend’s sink.

First prize is an in home consultation for your friend with a green living specialist and a year’s supply of Seventh Generation products for your friend and for you. The two of you also win a trip to NYC for a day of pampering in Manhattan’s Green Spa.

I don’t know about you, but I could use a day of pampering at a spa. It might be just enough incentive for me to “out” one of my friends who is still using bleach to clean her kitchen floors.
