What better way to honor Earth Day than to help your fellow citizens go green? Today Dell launched a partnership with Brighter Planet to help power earthtweet, a platform which uses the #earthtweet tag to aggregate tweets about what you're doing to celebrate Earth Day. Whether you're hosting an event, or coming up with a unique way to conserve, your earthtweets will inspire others to get involved, and could even win you a brand new Dell laptop. More on that contest below…
At Dell, we’re working to become the greenest technology company on the planet. We’re making some great progress toward that goal, too, having met our carbon neutrality goal in 2008, buying more and more renewable energy and producing some of the most energy-efficient systems in the industry. But we believe we’ll make the biggest impact by jumping into the conversation, sharing what we’ve learned about going green and learning from everyone else.
Similarly, Brighter Planet is dedicated to helping you take charge in the fight against global warming and building a clean-energy future. Brighter Planet funds top-notch renewable energy projects creating practical solutions to climate change. Members of Brighter Planet have offset 92,377,511 pounds of CO2, which is like taking 2,786,594 cars off the road for a day.
Help spread the word! Tell your Twitter followers about the #earthtweet tag, and add the earthtweet badge or widget to your personal blog. Encourage your readers to join the conversation. Each day, earthtweet will hand out prizes for tips they’ve received that deserve some extra attention. For our part, Dell will give away a Dell Studio 15 laptop (Energy Star compliant, features a mercury-free WLED display and comes in Spring Green!) after a weeklong contest that focuses on technology-related tips. See EarthTweet.com for more details. Also visit Dell’s Facebook Wall which will be dedicated to your green ideas for 7 days, with fresh topics daily! Get tips, share your ideas and spread the word!
