Need a little added inspiration to get involved? Enter to win in the World’s Biggest Green Sweepstakes!

The sweepstakes begins September 23, 2009, during the first ever “Climate Week” happening in New York City, and continues until prizes are awarded by random drawing on December 7, 2009, when the United Nations gathers in Copenhagen for the COP15 Climate Change Conference. When you sign up, you’ll be entered to win from hundreds of green prizes from your favorite companies (yup, Coco-Zen is one of them). You will also receive a weekly email from WE ADD UP with simple and easy call to actions that help our voices be heard regarding climate change. Non-profit organizations, including 350.0rg and 1Sky, will be leading us on what to do.

There will be over 230 winners in the Climate Action Giveaway and each prize will help you lead a more sustainable lifestyle. Enter to Win today! – http://www.climategiveaway.com
