(New York) by Alessandra Vila — Feel like it’s time to stop talking and do something for the earth? If you come up with a good idea for new earth-friendly products, you might be a winner in Prancing Leopard’s Facebook Contest.
“Every day is Earth Day at Prancing Leopard Organics,” said a Prancing Leopard Organics spokesperson. “We want to make it simple to do the right thing.”
To enter, just go to the contest webpage
- Fill out the form and submit it per e-mail

- Facebook Fans vote based on product appeal, expressiveness and utility
- Any idea with five or more Facebook post “likes” wins something
Inviting your friends to “like” your ideas is one way to increase your chances. Prize winners can choose between clothing, accessories or gift certificates.
Contest entrants are free to submit general product ideas, or more detailed ones, whichever they choose. Product ideas can consist of text only (or even poetry!), or be more detailed including rough sketches, pictures or videos.
While Prancing Leopard Organics is primarily a “lifestyle brand with an active wear bent” (according to Women’s Wear Daily® ‘s Marc Karimzadeh), only the Facebook fans decide which product ideas are most appropriate.
Prancing Leopard believes that being earth-friendly by itself is not enough. They suggest that a look throughout history shows that truly great products have consistently celebrated product appeal, expressiveness and utility.
“We feel a deep need to encourage more earth-friendly products,” explains Sevda Holland, President of Prancing Leopard Organics. “Manufacturing and industry is where it all starts in terms of the environment. We believe products should be designed from the outset to be earth-friendly cradle-to-cradle.”
Prancing Leopard offers earth-friendly fashion-forward, organic lifestyle fashion suitable as contemporary apparel, yoga clothing, Pilates wear, or fitness clothes. Prancing Leopard Organics is expanding to offer accessories such as unique fashionable yoga jewelry and malas, fitness accessories, yoga mats and yoga videos etc.
In keeping with their philanthropic bent, Prancing Leopard Organics founded the non-profit Women Artisan Project, which supports artisan women in underserved communities – with the goals of keeping their creative heritage alive and empowering them with self-confidence, independence and their own income. All their products are hand-made from the finest 100% organic Turkish pima cotton available, and “made with love.”
Prancing Leopard Organics is a fast-growing eco-designer label and is sold in upscale boutiques such as Fred Segal Yoga, Exhale Spas, Four Season Resorts and Jivamukti Yoga. Prancing Leopard will also be featured in this years major motion picture “Someday this Pain will be Useful to You” starring Marcia-Gay Harden, Lucy Liu, Stephen Lang, Deborah Ann Woll and Toby Regbo. Prancing Leopard is the preferred clothing for eco-lifestyle fitness luminaries like Elena Brower, Jai Sugrim, Toni Melaas, Elsie Escobar, Lotte Paarup, Susanne Botzenhart, Toni Melaas and Ana Caban.
