Solar Charger Giveaway for CleanTechnica Readers; IEEE Launches Green Your World Challenge to Inspire Sustainable Living


From recent news reporting a global investment in renewable energy of more than $257 billion, to headlines highlighting green changes implemented by companies across the globe, this past year was a notable era of progress in enhancing the environment’s sustainability. However, as most of us know, there is still much that can be done to further improve environmental health.

Focusing on individual action is an effective starting point. It’s often surprising to learn the extensive impact we each have on the planet – it’s estimated every person produces 4.3 pounds of waste daily! While people seem interested in pursuing sustainable lifestyles more than ever, actually implementing changes can be difficult and overwhelming.

A great place to begin is by committing to just one activity that reduces your environmental impact and can be easily integrated in your day-to-day life. To get started, you can make a commitment, and invite your friends to do the same, by participating in the IEEE Green Your World (GYW) Challenge, which is a fun Facebook app that asks you to support or create an eco-friendly pledge.

IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization, recently launched its GYW Challenge in an effort to encourage and inspire more sustainable living.

To get started, log in to Facebook (if you aren’t logged in already) and “like” the IEEE GYW Challenge page.

After you “like” the page, you will have the opportunity to create your own green challenge, support someone else’s challenge, or create a drawing that shows what a greener world looks like to you. You can share the challenge on Facebook and invite your friends.

If contributing to a greener world isn’t incentive enough, readers of CleanTechnica will have the chance to win a USB device solar charger, courtesy of IEEE, when you participate in the GYW Challenge. How to do so is below.

Solar Charger Giveaway

To enter the CleanTechnica Solar Charger Giveaway, just follow these three steps:

  1. Go to the IEEE Green Your World (GYW) Challenge page and submit a challenge (make sure to “like” the IEEE GYW Challenge page first).
  2. Share this post on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, StumbleUpon, LinkedIn, or Reddit.
  3. Let us know in the comments below (just one comment, please) what your challenge was and where you shared the post.

The winner will be selected next Wednesday, June 27.

If you want to go above and beyond the giveaway requirements, you can get the latest updates on the GYW Challenge by following @IEEEorg on Twitter, and you can share your green ideas for the challenge by tweeting them using #GreenYourWorld.

What will you pledge to do for the IEEE GYW Challenge? What are some of the actions you regularly take now to contribute to a more sustainable future?

*Note: the giveaway is only open to residents of the United States.

Former Tesla Battery Expert Leading Lyten Into New Lithium-Sulfur Battery Era — Podcast:

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
