As we approach the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, our Do Just 1 Thing campaign will channel the demand for simple but impactful actions into real-world results.  Our Do Just 1 Thing campaign will get people across the country to switch to clean energy in whatever ways they can.

We're providing you with just one thing that will make a huge difference. 


The goals

  1. Meet the huge demand out there for simple ways to make a big impact.  It's maybe the most impactful few minutes you'll ever spend.
  2. Go beyond activism and awareness to provide real measurable impact.  Events come and go.  So let's make this landmark anniversary last.
  3. Demonstrate that together we can make a difference.  Even if you feel like your individual actions don't matter in the big picture, if we pool all of our individual actions, that adds up to something huge.

The impact

The more people we switch over to clean energy, the more we reduce carbon emissions and help to directly mitigate global climate change and local air and water pollution.  By switching your bills over to pay only for clean energy via one of our partners, you're voting with your dollars to say, "I want to see a transition to renewable energy and I'm willing to take things into my own hands to do it."

By signing up for a solar or wind energy project, you're voting with your dollars to support the wider transition to renewable energy.

Aside from the direct impact, this effort also has an indirect strategic goal because if we can substantially increase the number of people switching to renewable energy, we will reach a critical mass that will result in the creation of more renewable energy facilities to meet the growing demand and send a signal to governments that there is public interest in substantially increasing the share of renewables in the energy industry.

Our campaign therefore has both a real world impact today and a bigger strategic impact on climate and energy in the future.

How it works

Switching is fast and easy.  There’s no home visit, nothing to install, and your power will still get to you in the same way.  You will get the same service from your current utility company and maintain the same reliability.  But instead of just automatically paying each month for fossil fuels like coal, oil and fracked gas, you’ll be supporting renewable energy projects, sometimes right in your own community.

Signing up is a one-time simple action that has a big monthly impact going forward with no further action on your part.

Right now, your monthly utility bill is likely paying for a mix of mostly non-renewable sources like coal, oil, and natural gas from fracking, which pollute our environment and contribute to climate change.  When you make the switch to source from one of our clean energy partners, you're taking things into your own hands to build new solar and wind energy facilities in the U.S.

You can sit back and enjoy the fact that you're greatly reducing your carbon footprint and environmental impact on our planet everyday, without having to change your daily routine or make a long term commitment, and without any home installation.
