Join Greenpeace's Photo Petition/Competition

Facebook plans to start a new data center in Oregon, USA, which will be powered by coal. The same coal which threatens forests, wildlife and the entire environment.

People from across the world have been asking Facebook to go green by using renewable energy to power the network.

Recently they have started to move, but nowhere near enough. To encourage them to do so, Greenpeace have now given Facebook a deadline - Earth Day, April 22, 2011.

As part of the campaign to a 'greener' Facebook Greenpeace are inviting folks to join a very special photo petition -- no, call it a competition -- to get the message out far and wide on Facebook and beyond.

How to join in:
"Like" the Facebook Unfriend Coal page and upload a photo there with a status message calling Facebook to go green. Print out or copy this campaign graphic, and include it in your photo -- Version for printing, Alternative version you can add to an existing photo with an image editor (saves paper!).

You can also vote for your favourite images by clicking the "Like" links on the photo pages.

The 10 most-liked photos on Wednesday, 16 February at 17:00 CET will feature in an upcoming Greenpeace activity... (say no more, nudge nudge, wink wink). We also have campaign t-shirts for the top ten, and a CD of "Amchitka, The 1970 Concert that Launched Greenpeace," featuring Joni Mitchell, Phil Ochs, and James Taylor, for the most popular photo of all.

The funniest, weirdest, and most provocative photos will probably get the most 'Likes', so have some fun with it, submit your photo and get "liking" right away!
