Enter Today: Copper Home Innovation Challenge “CHIC”

By Victoria Prather, Manager, Communications CDA

Whether we realize it or not, copper surrounds us on a daily basis—from cooking utensils, to doorknobs and even in our food! While copper can be found throughout our homes, its characteristics also make it an ideal addition to any backyard or garden. 

As a result of its durability, copper is a great material for fire pits, bird feeders, planters and any other outdoor lawn ornament. Copper does not corrode over time, making copper products highly sustainable and capable of withstanding even the harshest weather conditions.

CDA invited you to share with us some of the ways you’re using copper in your yard by entering your copper décor in our Copper Home Innovation Challenge! The challenge runs until October 15th and invites all designers and homeowners to showcase the unique ways in which they’re using copper décor in their homes for a chance to win as much as $250 to William Sonoma.

For more information about the challenge, including how to enter, please visit our website at www.copperchic.org!

 

PS- Did you know that copper is environmentally friendly and is essential in any plant diet? An inadequate amount of copper in plants can cause poor growth, plant sterility and even delay flowering. While it can be helpful, it is important to test soils before adding copper to them, as an abundance of copper can actually be toxic to roots and leaves.
