While it’s not officially summer until June 21st, temperatures across the country are definitely simmering. To celebrate the season, we want to see how you enjoy the outdoors with our #NatureSelfie contest!

All you have to do it snap a photo of you getting outside anddoing something. Maybe you’re grilling out in the backyard, splashing around in your nearest swimmin’ hole or lacing up your hiking boots. Post your photo to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Google+ and tag it with #NatureSelfie. We’ll collect all the photos and feature our favorites right here on The Environmentalist!

Wait! There’s more! Your #NatureSelfie can also help convince Twitter to follow the likes of Facebook and Google by powering their platform with 100 percent renewable energy. When posting your photo to Twitter, mention @Twitter and ask them to make your #NatureSelfie green! A green selfie is one posted on a platform that uses renewable energy for their data centers. Facebook, Instagram and Google +? Green! Twitter, Pinterest? Dirty!

Currently, Twitter along with Pinterest, Amazon, Netflix and more power their sites with dirty energy like coal and gas. We know with enough pressure from their users, those companies will follow Apple, Google and Facebook and commit to 100% clean energy for their data centers so we can all #clickclean.

We can’t wait to see your #NatureSelfie!
