Some of the biggest green websites on the internet have teamed up for Climate Week (4th March-10th March http://www.climateweek.com) to offer our social media followers a great competition that helps you to get involved in the cause.

Simply make a Donation pledge to do something to reduce your carbon footprint during Climate Week and we'll enter you into our draw to win a fab Roberts SolarDAB radio, the world's first solar powered digital radio! You can pledge as many times as you want and each pledge counts as one draw entry, so be ambitious!
