Cincinnati among finalists in national Cash for Cans recycling video contest

Get Sick Productions, a local viral marketing and new media production company, has produced what could soon be an award winning video in a national Cash for Cans contest.

The "I CAN" video, which features citizens, a mascot, and even pair of elephants promoting aluminum can recycling, is one of about 75 videos that were submitted to the contest sponsored by The United States Conference of Mayors, Novelis Corporation and Keep America Beautiful Inc. The winning city earns $5,000 for local recycling efforts. The winning video will be the commercial for Keep America Beautiful's 2010 Cans for Cash city recycling challenge.

Cincinnati's video was chosen as one of the best and is in the top 12. From Oct. 12-Oct. 31, you can vote for the winning video HERE.

"This contest is a great way to showcase Cincinnati in the national spotlight as a leader in sustainability," says Jon Miller, President of Get Sick Productions. "Everyone can help the city by going to the website and voting for the video."
Cincinnati's Office of Environmental Quality, Get Sick Productions, Rumpke, Mayor Mallory's Young Professionals Kitchen Cabinet (YPKC), and the Cincinnati Zoo collaborated to produce the video for the contest. 

"This was a great opportunity for the various organizations in the area to come together and support an important cause," remarks Aja Roberto, YPKC member.
