Vote Tree #40—The Bicycle-Powered Christmas Tree

December 5, 2011 at 1:22 pm 1 comment

Clean Energy Durham never stops pumping its message of fun-filled energy conservation tips for your home and everyday life.  To compete in the Triangle Tree Challenge, where 60 non-profits decorate a 10-foot tree in the message and spirit of their organization, Clean Energy Durham brought together its message of energy conservation (switch to those LED lights, folks!) and bicycling, as a safe, healthful alternative to fossil fuel-driven transportation.  With the help of Joe Sykora of www.eBoo.st and Yakir Gagnon, Clean Energy Durham erected a bike connected to the LED holiday lights on the tree.  A sign invites passersby to hop on and pedal to light up the tree.

Even while we were getting set up, nearly everyone who came by wanted to get on and try it out.  Now all we need is for everyone to vote for our tree!  You can vote by texting 46988 with the message, “tree 40,” or you can vote online at www.triangletreechallenge.com with your email address and our tree number – 40.  People can vote once a day beginning last Friday, December 2nd at 8pm until December 18th at 11:59 pm.

If Clean Energy Durham gets the most votes, our organization wins $5,000—money we will use to lower energy costs and consumption through neighbors teaching neighbors right here in Durham.  Please help us out, vote today and every day through December 18th.  What an easy way to help us raise $5,000!  THANKS!

Trees will be available for viewing at Diamond View Park on the American Tobacco Campus beginning December 1st.  A photo of our tree is now up on the Triangle Tree Challenge website—check it out!
