BOSTON, Jul 20, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) -- Converted Organics(TM) Inc. (Nasdaq:COIN) (www.convertedorganics.com) announces that it has selected the five lucky winners of its 2010 Ultimate Lawn Makeover Sweepstakes, who will each receive a Lawn Care Makeover Service valued at $1,000 to be carried out by industry-leading professional lawn care companies, with all products to be provided by Converted Organics.
The Converted Organics Ultimate Lawn Makeover Sweepstakes was designed to promote the value of an organic lawn care program to consumers nationwide. The randomly-selected winners are as follows: Heidi Thompson (Acton, MA), Ben Kent (Bethel, CT), Mark Libby (Groton, MA), Lisa McAllister (Madison, CT), and Kerry Patterson (Foster, RI).
"Implementing an all-natural program will allow homeowners to grow green, lush lawns that are safe for children, pets and the environment," said David F. Flannery, Vice President of Marketing for Converted Organics. "Over time, organic lawn programs cost less than chemical-based programs, because organics produce healthier turf which also requires fewer fertilizer applications. Our hope with this year's sweepstakes was to show people that an organic lawn care program can be a convenient and affordable way to grow great grass without using petroleum-based, synthetic fertilizers."
Treatments will include an organic fertilization program and will be provided by the following lawn care companies: Purely Organic Lawn Care (York, ME), SavaLawn (Bedford Hills, NY) and Simply Safer Lawncare (Wrentham, MA).
