REMYXX Takes Aim at Kickstarter With Shark Tank’s Daymond John
100% Recyclable Shoe Closes In On Funding Goal
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) June 08, 2012
The first 100% landfill-free sneaker, REMYXX, is closing in on its Kickstarter funding goal by partnering up with Daymond John, of ABC´s Shark Tank, for a Twitter shoe giveaway this week June 6-8.
The contest is based around the hit TV series Shark Tank´s Twitter account, which REMYXX appeared on the May 18 episode. It encourages followers of the show to tweet the color of REMYXX shoe they would like Daymond John to wear.
The three day contest also offers a chance for one participant, each day, to win a pair of their own REMYXX sneakers. The lucky winners will be able to choose their own color and be proud owners of the shoes Gary Gagnon created.
“Partnering with my shark, Daymond John, for this Twitter contest has been helpful in bringing in further publicity about the REMYXX brand,” Gary Gagnon, REMYXX CEO says. “I´m excited where the Kickstarter campaign will finish and can see a bright future for REMYXX.”
REMYXX has been picked up by major media outlets, such as CNN, for its sustainable cause and for revolutionizing the way people think about shoes and recycling. With only 17 days left in the Kickstarter campaign, REMYXX has already surpassed the mark as the highest grossing sneaker in the popular crowdfunding website´s history.
“Being the most popular sneaker on Kickstarter ever is encouraging and proves to me that REMYXX will be in demand when we start production shortly after the campaign,” Gagnon said.
The world´s first and only completely landfill-free sneakers, REMYXX addresses the importance of recycling by dressing feet in style. REMYXX is about creating an everyday atmosphere in which we can advance and initiate improvements in recycling, landfill diversion, sustainability, green living, corporate responsibility and individual eco-smart decisions.
