Take the Shuttle Challenge and Get Free Gas!

You heard right! By decreasing your greenhouse gas emissions by 10%, Shuttle (an environmental program conducted by Summerhill Impact) is giving you a $25 gas card and one entry into a draw for $2,500 cash.

Those that are participating in the challenge are motivated to use other modes of transportation for three weeks, while their efforts are tracked by the electronic data logger, Ottoview.

Data received from all participants will be used to inform policies that reduce gridlock and improve air quality in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA)”.

Summerhill Impact is a not-for-profit organization with a vested interest in educating the public about making better environmental choices.

Oro Verde - Every year we produce 3,3 billion tons of CO2, that’s why we need the rainforest more than every.

This print campaign for the rainforest foundation Oro Verde, showcases the dramatic increase of COemissions worldwide.  It cleverly turns the iconic shapes of Africa and South America into clouds of smoke to demonstrate the message that we need to use what’s left of the rainforest to fight off the COemissions. 

I love it when advertising doesn’t try to get people to purchase a product or service.  Ads that simply try to spread a message, like this ad, are some of the best and most influential ads on the planet.
