Speaking of sustainable New Years Resolutions, here’s a fun way to announce yours to the world!
Tell us how you resolve to save energy in 2012.
Go to the contest on the Better World Energy Facebook Page and submit a sentence (or sentences) that begins with “I resolve to” and follows with what you will do to save energy and shrink your carbon footprint.
For example: I resolve to change ten light bulbs to CFLs and always turn off the lights when I leave the room!
Then, share your resolution and vote for your favorite entry. The entry that receives the most votes by February 7, 2012 wins! Two additional winners will be selected by Better World Energy judges based on innovation, effectiveness, and usefulness to others. The creator of each winning entry will receive a carbon offset for the annual emissions of an average vehicle, a $75 value. You do your part, and we’ll do ours!
