Hey lovely Inhabitat readers!

If you’ve been reading our website over the past week, you may have noticed that we are running a Summer giveaway contest with lots of great prizes to inspire you guys to sign up for our fabulous Inhabitat weekly newsletter. As if receiving our wondrous newsletter weren’t a prize enough in itself, we’re offering some special incentives this week to make signing up with us that much more appealing to you. We’re giving away a free solar power backpack by Voltaic Systems (value $250), some hand-crank LED emergency lanterns from Freeplay (value $45), and some lovely Inhabitat schwag, including our hand-printed organic T-shirts and tote bags (value $40).

The drawing for the grand-prize solar backpack may be random, but you can narrow your odds down to 100% and DEFINITELY win a t-shirt if you sign up for our newsletter right now >


Inhabitat Organic green t-shirts


The first FIVE people who sign up to subscribe to Inhabitat within the next 15 minutes will all be given their choice of T-shirt or tote bag from the Inhabitat shop. If you’ve been wanting one of these and have balked at the prices (sorry but they are organic, hand-made, and expensive for us to produce – what can we do?), now is your chance to get one FOR FREE, if you are quick enough on the draw.

1. Prizes will only be given to recipients in the US and Canada. Sorry international readers, but its really tough for us to ship overseas and deal with customs and all that!

2. You can only sign up for our newsletter ONCE, so this basically limits entries to one per person.

3. All winners will need to get in touch with Inhabitat within ONE WEEK of announcement of winners in order to receive their prizes. Failure to respond to email or newsletter messages that you have won a prize will result in forfeiture of that prize to someone else.
