    Cool off with free ice cream!

    Climate change means our summers are getting too hot. But that doesn’t mean you need to melt on the streets all alone. Next week, you can join us and take action to protect our climate … and cool down with free Ben & Jerry’s!

    From July 29-31, the EPA will hear from the public on the proposed Clean Power Plan – which attempts to address the biggest source of harmful carbon pollution in the United States: power plants.

    These hearings are so important that we’re posting up in crowded spots all over Denver for two days with Ben & Jerry’s ice cream trucks re-commissioned as mobile action centers to raise awareness, gather support, and best of all, pass out free scoops of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.

    See below for event details, and follow @ClimateReality for up-to-the-minute truck locations. Then click here to RSVP and we'll have a free #ImTooHot sticker waiting for you at your location.

    The EPA’s proposed limits on carbon pollution are historic. They send a clear message to Big Polluters that it’s time for them to clean up their act, and cool it with the carbon pollution. Be a part of history and join us at one of the I’m Too Hot truck locations in Atlanta, Washington D.C., Denver, or Pittsburgh. 

    See you at the truck! 


    All activities related to the #ImTooHot mobile action centers are being tracked and verified carbon offset projects are being supported to neutralize the emissions from event-related travel, waste and energy. 

    We have selected Ben and Jerry's as our ice cream partner and are proud of their efforts to pioneer socially responsible business practices and sustainability efforts which include:

    • 100 percent of U.S. pint containers are made with FSC Certified paperboard; 
    • Monitoring emissions and has specific emissions reduction targets; 
    • Monitoring water usage and increased % of water recycled on-site bi-annually; and,
    • Offsetting greater than 50 percent of emissions with certified carbon offsets.
