Coca-Cola Offers Sweet Rewards for National Parks

IStock_000013790495XSmall If you cool off with a fizzy drink this month, be sure to reap sweet rewards with Coca-Cola for national parks.

Through MyCokeRewards and the Summer Snapshot Contest, the soda giant is giving away annual passes and family vacation packages to national parks. Coke drinkers can “upload a laugh” to MyCoke.com’s Smile-izer, too, where for each upload, Coca-Cola will donate $1 – up to $50,000 – to the National Park Foundation, and $100,000 to the park voted America’s favorite at LivePositively.com.

Though Coca-Cola isn't the greenest of companies, what with its plastic-bottle packaging and pollution-prone bottling plants, its sustainability initiatives and pro-park stance are a step in the right direction.
