Carbon Cashback Giveaways

With #carboncashbacks, every American could get $250/year CASH

To show you what #carboncashbacks feel like, we’ll be giving away $250/week on our Instagram. That’s $250 of green, to support the greenest climate policy in the world.

How to enter

  1. Follow CCL on Instagram (@citizensclimate)
  2. Follow the rules as specified in the weekly contest post. In some weeks, the contest will be based on tagging friends in the Instagram contest post (1 tag = 1 contest entry). In other weeks, the contest will be based on posting the contest to your Instagram Story, tagging CCL (@citizensclimate), and adding the Story to a highlight (this action = 1 contest entry).

Make sure your Instagram account is public for the week(s) you are entered into the contest.

Winner Selection

The weekly giveaway will be posted on Tuesdays. Each week’s giveaway will last until the following Saturday evening at 11:59pm ET, during which an entrant must either tag one or more friends in the post or share CCL’s post to their Instagram story, tag @citizensclimate in it, and save the Story to a Highlight.  Your Instagram account must be public the for the week that the giveaway is active in order to win. There are 6 individual carbon cashback giveaways during the contest. 

The winner will be chosen using a service that randomly selects winner, like VerifyShare. Each tag will count as one entry, so your chances of winning are relative to the number of tags you include, and the total number of tags in the contest. 

Each weekly giveaway constitutes a separate contest. Entries on one weekly giveaway will not carry over to the next week’s giveaway. Only tags on the relevant weekly post, or stories from the relevant content period will be counted as official entries. Entrants may enter as many weekly giveaways as they like. However, winners who have already claimed a carbon cashback prize are ineligible to win the carbon cashback prize in another week.  

The winner will be announced by CCL via Instagram story on the Monday following the contest, and will be notified via an Instagram direct message  from @citizensclimate. Citizens’Climate Lobby will ask for your email address for the purposes of fulfilling the prize. All information collected to send prizes will be done by email from staff at CCL with an email address ending in Please do not supply any personal information solicited via Instagram direct message to any accounts soliciting private information. Winners will have seven (7) days to claim their prize, after which they will forfeit the prize. 

Winners must provide a physical address, not a P.O. Box  at which to redeem the prize. The cash prize will be redeemed via a check sent to your physical address or a deposit 

Entries are limited to those ages 18 and over residing in the United States and Canada (residents of Quebec are excluded from entering this contest.)
